Match preview

Nottingham Forest’s nine-match unbeaten streak ended with a 1-0 home loss to Liverpool in the FA Cup fifth round, but they can return to winning ways with a major league success against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road .

The international break has given Forest top scorer Lewis Grabban time to return to training, but the 34-year-old may have to settle for a place on the bench.

Forest are still without injured centre-backs Scott McKenna and Steve Cook, but they offered plenty of resistance against Liverpool and have a strong enough backline to deal with the 13th-placed Seasiders, who consolidated superbly in their first second-tier season since. 2014-15.

Blackpool could finish in the top half, but they certainly have a lot less to do than Forest, who are chasing the playoffs, and the visitors’ higher motivation could be key to securing three points.
