This weekend sees the game between 2 sides that at the start of the season you would've tipped for promotion, but Sami Hyypia's men have started off slow in the league, with Pearce's men still top and unbeaten, in the week Brighton got a well deserved victory against Burton, and with Forest losing to a battle of the B team clash there were many positives to show from that game.

Recently the results against the 2 sides have gone either way, in the fixture at the Amex Forest came out 3-1 winners, but at the City Ground on the last day of the season Brighton won with a last minute goal to seal their play off place. That came in vain as they crashed out in the semi-finals

Team news: Forest are still recovering from their injuries sustained over the last week with Hobbs and Fryatt still out for another week while Cohen won't be returning till next season. Hunt and Reid are in contention to start, for Brighton captain Inigo Calderon is suspended and Dale Stephens and Solly March are recovering from their injuries, Kemy Agustien is close to fitness and it'll be touch and go up until the start of the game.

My prediction: It'll be close but with Forest being on form in the league I think it'll be a 2-0 home win.
