Three points will put the Cottagers on 90 points and with Bournemouth as the only team that can reach that tally, it would take a 31-goal swing in goal difference for the Cherries to win the league ahead of Fulham.
Nottingham Forest on the other hand are flying. The Reds have only lost two league games in 2022 and have only taken two less points than Fulham since Steve Cooper’s arrival, having played a game less.
Forest have aspirations of their own as just one point from this fixture will secure a play-off place for the Reds with three games to spare.
However, Forest will want to take all three points from Craven Cottage if they're going to keep their automatic promotion hopes alive. Steve Cooper’s side now sit five points away from Bournemouth in second, with four games to go, and a date against the Cherries to come.
Steve Cooper has kept changes to a minimum this season and is likely to name an unchanged side again for this game as his side look to push for promotion.
“I don’t know yet, to be honest. We’ll check it out when we get back,” Steve Cooper said to the press after the game.
“He was clear straight away that he needed to come off. We’ve got our fingers crossed for him.”
Fulham: Rodák, Tete, Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson, Chalobah, Reed, Wilson, Carvalho, Decordova-Reid, Mitrovic
Nottingham Forest: Samba, Worrall, Figueiredo, McKenna, Spence, Yates, Garner, Colback, Zinckernagel, Johnson, Surridge
Ones to watch
The Serbian striker was named as the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Season on Monday with 41 goals and seven assists. The 27-year-old has scored four goals across Fulham’s last four home league games and will be looking to add to his tally.
Surridge is looking for a third goal in as many matches. The 23-year-old now has five goals in all competitions for Forest with just eleven shots on goal. Every time Surridge has scored for Forest in all competitions, the Reds have won the fixture.
