After both teams have left the Midweek Premier League games with their heads high, Nottingham Forest and Liverpool will be ready for battle on Saturday lunchtime's game on The City Ground. The Tricky Trees held Brighton & Hove Albion to an uncontested draw on Tuesday. It was 24 minutes before Jurgen Klopp's side defeated West Ham United by a goal to zero.
It was an Ruben Neves penalty to allow Wolverhampton Wanderers to get the edge over a determined Nottingham Forest side last weekend Steve Cooper's team maintained their defensive strength at the Amex in holding Brighton to one goal at the South Coast.

After 8 games at the top division without winning, Nottingham Forest remain below the 19th spot but have at least they have lifted themselves from the lowest of the table. They are now ahead of Leicester City, who can bring Cooper's team back to 20th when they play Leeds United later on Thursday.
Cooper said that the decision to take a point of the Amex was a significant step in the right direction this team. The club is currently the league's second-worst goal scorers, with only seven goals in their record. Wolves and their five goals have a better record in this category.
Forest supporters are motivated with the knowledge that 6 of their club's seven top-flight goals of the season have been played from the City Ground, but a score of just four points in five home matches is the lowest mark in the division thus far and the cloud is slowing to clear for Liverpool.
Although their injuries have not shown any signs of getting better any time soon Liverpool has scored the most goals in their last two matches and held on to three points every time in the joy of their fans who have grown used to watching their team concede in the early hours of this season.
Before he was dismissed shortly before the hour mark Darwin Nunez put in his most impressive display in the Liverpool shirt, taking his downwards header well beyond his reach Lukasz Fabianski on the 22nd of the minute however, Alisson Becker was forced to block the resulting Jarrod Bowen penalty shortly after the interval.
West Ham huffed and puffed but ended up losing 1-0 at Anfield which was a match with Manchester City's fate. This has permitted Liverpool to move up to seventh place in the table having scored 16 points after 10 matches and narrow the gap between 4th-placed Chelsea down to four points.
Klopp has witnessed that his side win 3 consecutive matches across all competitions for only the third time this season. However, only one victory from six away matches could be worrying the German slightly, even if the sole win saw them beat seven Rangers just two weeks ago.
When it comes to 1-0 scorelines one goal scored by Diogo Jota was the only thing needed to allow Liverpool to defeat Nottingham Forest in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup last season, and this game on Saturday will be an historic first Premier League meeting between the two clubs since the start of April 1999, in which Michael Owen and Jamie Redknapp scored for the Merseyside team in the draw.
