Preview: Bournemouth vs. Nottingham Forest

Sports Mole previews Nottingham Forest's trip to Dean Court to face Bournemouth in the Championship.

Bournemouth will be looking to maintain their early lead at the top of the Championship table when they host Nottingham Forest on Tuesday evening.

Eddie Howe's side are one of only two club's in the division to have secured all six points from their first two matches of the new season.

With no new injuries reported by the Cherries, Bournemouth could name the same starting XI for the third league match in a row, although Junior Stanislas may push for a start after coming off the bench to score the winning goal against Brentford at the weekend.

Meanwhile, Stuart Pearce will be hoping that his side can maintain their unbeaten start to the Championship season following Forest's 2-2 draw with Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

Henri Lansbury is yet to feature for the club this campaign after picking up a knock in pre-season and is due back after initially been ruled out for around two weeks last month, although he has been linked with a move away from the club.

Britt Assombalonga is likely to continue to lead the attack for the visitors, having netted a brace in their draw at the weekend.

When the two sides met at Dean Court last season, Bournemouth claimed a 4-1 win.
