Sports Mole previews Nottingham Forest's clash with Middlesbrough in the Championship on Tuesday.

Middlesbrough will head into their Championship clash with Nottingham Forest on Tuesday looking for their sixth competitive in a row.

Boro moved up to second in the table on goal difference behind Cardiff City on Saturday with a comprehensive 4-1 win at Charlton Athletic, their fifth successive victory in the league.

Forest too were involved in a 4-1 scoreline at the weekend, although for them it was at the wrong end as they went down to Millwall at home.

That defeat has left Sean O'Driscoll's side eighth in the standings with 21 points from 14 matches.

There are no new injury problems for Middlesbrough, while midfielder Radoslaw Majewski could miss out for the hosts.
