Team News: Paul Lambert makes four changes

Paul Lambert makes four changes to his Wolverhampton Wanderers side for the trip to Nottingham Forest.

Paul Lambert has made four changes to his Wolverhampton Wanderers side for their trip to Nottingham Forest this afternoon.

The manager changes from a 4-3-3 lineup to a 4-2-3-1 for the encounter, with Nouha Dicko playing the lone striker role.

Ivan Cavaleiro and Helder Costa - passed fit despite coming off with a knock in the 2-1 midweek defeat at Cardiff City - drop back slightly and are joined by youngster Bright Enobakhare as attacking support for Dicko.

Romain Saiss and George Saville are demoted to the bench and Jack Price comes in to partner Dave Edwards at defensive mid, while Conor Coady is deployed at left-back in lieu of Dominic Iorfa.

Meanwhile, Carl Ikeme is back between the sticks after recovering from a hip injury, with his 19-year-old understudy Harry Burgoyne dropping to the bench.

Forest boss Philippe Montanier makes five changes to the side that could only manage a 1-1 draw with Preston North End last time out.

Greek striker Apostolos Vellios comes into the side to partner Ben Osborn up front after coming off the bench to bring his side level in midweek, while Nicklas Bendtner fails to make the matchday squad.

The midfield is much-changed as Pajtim Kasami, Jorge Grant and Mustapha Carayol get the nod ahead of Hildeberto Pereira, David Vaughan and Thomas Lam.

The other alteration is in the back three, as Michael Mancienne comes in for Damien Perquis, who has been ruled out after requiring stitches for a head wound in the game against Preston.

Nottingham Forest: Stojkovic; Mancienne, Mills, Worrall; Lichaj, Kasami, Cash, Grant, Carayol; Osborn, Vellios
Subs: Henderson, Pereira, Lica, Vaughan, Hobbs, Ahmedhodzic, Dumitru-Cardoso

Wolverhampton Wanderers: Ikeme; Doherty, Stearman, Batth, Coady; Price, Edwards; Cavaleiro, Eonobakhare, Costa; Dicko
Subs: Burgoyne, Iorfa, Hause, Saville, Saiss, Ronan, Bodvarsson
