Karanka: 'I will pick the best players'
Nottingham Forest boss Aitor Karanka says that he will pick players best suited for each game ahead of their Championship fixture against West Bromwich Albion.

Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka has told reporters that he will pick players best suited for each game as he looks for his first win in the Championship this season.

The side, who are one of the promotion favourites this term after a summer of heavy spending, drew 1-1 with Bristol City at Ashton Gate in their opening league fixture on Saturday.

Karanka has hinted that he may make major changes to the starting XI for their next league fixture against West Bromwich Albion, as well as further changes as the season progresses.

"I do not know if it is better to change players or to give them a few games to get confidence. I do not know," he said in a pre-match press conference. "But right now, I am thinking about keeping going with the same, because they finished the game really well at Bristol.

"Again, I need to think about this, because with this squad, I can do whatever I want. That is the good thing for me now. The players understand, everyone has to respect each other.

"We will chose the best XI for every single game and they know that every player will get their chance."

Karanka's side face West Brom at home tonight in a 7.45pm kickoff.
