This Tuesday see's the battle of the best as top of the league Watford take on former leaders Nottingham Forest, from the outside it looks like an even match up, but is it?

Watford are coming into the game off of a 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday, and also without a loss in 6, winning 3. Forest though are without a win in 5, losing on Saturday ending their season unbeaten against Cardiff, drawing the rest, why is this?

Last season Forest were in the same predicament as a few weeks ago, flying high at the top of the league, but then injuries ruined the season, so far Forest have been without many key players, some returning since, but right now we are without 3 key players, Captain Chris Cohen who is still out for what looks like the rest of the season, Andy Reid who is out for another 5 weeks, and Jack Hobbs where January which looks like likely for his return, but Forest will also be without Henri Lansbury, who is suspended after picking up 5 yellows.

So 3 key players missing in midfield, which will hinder Forest completely from this game, but will the wingers of Burke and Antonio, and the strike force of Britt Assombalonga and Matty Fryatt make up for this?
