Is Nottingham Forest vs Fulham on TV? Kick-off time, team news and TV details ahead of Premier League clash

Nottingham Forest and Fulham are set to face off in the Premier League this weekend, in what could prove a key fixture in the relegation battle

After a weekend without Premier League football following Queen Elizabeth II’s death, action will resume on Friday night as Nottingham Forest host fellow promoted side Fulham.

The City Ground clash is one of seven matches that will go ahead this weekend after three were postponed ahead of The Queen’s funeral on Monday.

With Forest heading into the match off the back off three successive defeats, they will be desperate to pick up some points and give their home fans something to cheer about.

Meanwhile, Fulham have enjoyed a surprisingly positive start to the season and sit mid table after snatching points off Liverpool, Brentford and Brighton in their opening six matches.

While it was Fulham that won the Championship title last season, both clubs took equal shares of the points as they both won one of their two league meetings - though Fulham’s 4-0 away victory was arguably rather more impressive than Forest’s 1-0 scoreline six months later.

Ahead of this weekend’s match, here are all the details...

Team news

Nottingham Forest

Moussa Niakhate picked up a hamstring injury during Forest’s 1-0 win over West Ham last month and Steve Cooper has since confirmed that the defender is likely to be out for months.

Good news for Forest fans is that summer signing Orel Mangala could return to the fold this weekend after missing the last three matches with a hamstring issue.

The midfielder has impressed since his arrival in the Premier League and his availability will hand the East Midlands club a huge boost against Fulham.

Fulham

Harry Wilson is thought to be nearing a return for Fulham as he looks to make his first appearance of the season.

The winger has been out with a knee injury since the summer and the trip to Nottingham may come too early, however Wilson could return after the international break.

Summer loan signing Manor Solomon is likely to be out for another couple of months after having surgery on a knee injury last month, while Antonee Robinson sprained his ankle against Tottenham and could also miss out.
