Sports Mole previews Nottingham Forest's trip to Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

Charlton Athletic host Nottingham Forest at The Valley on Saturday afternoon looking to build on their 2-1 victory at promotion-chasing Leicester City in midweek.

A Danny Haynes strike gave the Addicks their first win in five games, which should give them a boost ahead of the clash with Forest.

Forest comfortably beat Huddersfield Town 6-1 at the City Ground on Tuesday evening to reignite their push for a playoff place. It was also Billy Davies's first win since returning as Reds manager.

Charlton boss Chris Powell could select the side which won at the King Power Stadium, with Haynes missing out on a place in the starting XI.

Davies could be tempted to name the same lineup which beat Huddersfield, which would see Radoslaw Majewski retain his starting place after netting a hat-trick in midweek.

Forest defender Daniel Ayala could miss out as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.
