Preview: Nottingham Forest vs. Sheffield Wednesday

Sports Mole previews Tuesday night's Championship match as Nottingham Forest look to end their 10-game winless run against Sheffield Wednesday.

It's almost two months since Nottingham Forest last registered a league victory in the Championship.

Despite their torrid 10-game winless run, Forest are just one place and five points outside of the playoffs and tomorrow night face Sheffield Wednesday looking to resurrect their top-six hopes.

They have been boosted by the recent returns of Henri Lansbury and Kelvin Wilson, both of whom could be back in the starting lineup on Tuesday.

Long-term absentees David Vaughan and Andy Reid might also be fit enough for a place on the bench.

Visitors Wednesday have lost three of their last four games and have problems of their own in defence, with Glenn Loovens and Oguchi Onyewu out.

A makeshift defence is likely to turn out, with Lewis Buxton at centre-back and Liam Palmer at right-back.

Forest won the reverse fixture earlier this season thanks to Simon Cox's second-half strike.
