Sports Mole goes over Tuesday's Championship meeting between two buoyant sides - Nottingham Forest and Ipswich Town.

Nottingham Forest have won three straight games in the Championship to ignite a push for the playoffs and they next welcome a similarly buoyant Ipswich Town on Tuesday.

The Tractor Boys struck late to oust promotion-chasing Leicester City and are in need of a win to distance themselves further from the relegation zone.

New Forest manager Billy Davies is yet to suffer defeat since taking over last month, drawing his first game before the last three successes.

Saturday's slender triumph at Sheffield Wednesday ensured that they remained eighth and kept pace with the sides around them who also won.

Davies has no reason to make any changes to his starting XI but Mick McCarthy might alter his Ipswich side slightly.

Daryl Murphy has been kept to the bench by Michael Chopra recently but set up David McGoldrick for the winning goal on Saturday and could earn a start as McGoldrick can't play against his parent club.
