Sports Mole previews the Championship clash between Nottingham Forest and Bolton Wanderers.

Nottingham Forest host Bolton Wanderers at the City Ground on Saturday, with the Reds hoping to secure their first league win in five games.

Billy Davies takes charge of Forest for the first time following his return as manager last week. Rob Kelly was at the helm for the Reds' 2-0 defeat at Bristol City last Saturday, a result which leaves Forest in 13th place, nine points adrift of the playoff places.

Bolton beat Burnley 2-1 in their last outing, with David Ngog coming off the bench to score the winner against their Lancashire rivals.

Davies could select the same team which were beaten at Ashton Gate. Forest defender Daniel Ayala may be in contention for a starting place following a spell on the sidelines.

Bolton boss Dougie Freedman could name the same XI which beat Burnley, which would see striker Marvin Sordell retain his place in the starting lineup ahead of Ngog.
