Sports Mole looks ahead to league leaders Nottingham Forest's trip to The Den to face Millwall.

Millwall will be hoping to bounce back from defeats in their last two matches when they host league leaders Nottingham Forest in the Championship at the weekend.

After a strong start to the season, Ian Holloway's men slipped to their second straight loss when they were beaten by Reading during the week, dropping them to 12th in the table.

The Lions will be without Lee Martin, who is expected to be out for around six weeks with a knee injury, but have no other new concerns.

Meanwhile, Forest suffered a scare after throwing away a two-goal lead against Fulham earlier this week, but fought back to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

The 5-3 win leaves Stuart Pearce's side just a single point ahead of Norwich City at the top of the table.

Captain Chris Cohen is expected to miss the remainder of the season with the knee injury that he sustained against Derby last weekend, but there are no other injury worries for the visitors.

Forest failed to secure a win against Millwall last season, sharing a 2-2 draw at The Den before losing at home late in the season.
