Both teams are in uptrend.
For Leicester Eriksson seems is making a good work: also if they lost in last round against Bristol City, before they had a run of four matches undefeated, with only a draw.
Nottingham Forest lost only against against Portsmouth (away) in last previous seven matches. So, today match is hard to predict, but some thing seems plays in Leicester favour.
Infact Nottingham has problems in attack now that second topscorer Blackstock (striker 15atts+3 5goals) is longterm injuried and McGoldrick (striek 2atts+4 1goal) is also out.
Moreover, Earnshaw (striker 9atts+3 1goal) is in doubt and missed two training cause flu.
To solve this situation, Nottingham has two new acquisition on loan: Tudgay (striker)form Sheffield Wednesday, where he played 15 matches + three as substitute without score goals; and Ramsey, 19 years old, on loan from Arsenal.
But, both are at first match with Forest, so it is all to see how they are already in feeling with the rest of team.
Moreover, they have other players in doubt, as captain Paul McKenna (midf. 15atts 1goal)and fellow midfielder Paul Anderson (13atts+5 1goal.
The only problem for Leicester is topscorer King (midf. 19atts+2 7 goals) in doubt, but, also if he will not declared fit, the team has many other prolific strikers upfront, as Howard, Fryatt, Vassell, Waghorn (the first two, togheter scored 9 goals till now). And to all these strikers, now they can add Bednar, on loan fron WBA that today could debut.
For them also another possible debut tonight, keeper Kirkland, on loan from Wigan.
Leicester has only five points less then Nottingham, but is near relegation zone, yet and has urgency to leave this zone and start to be involved in battle for playoffs - their season target.
They are undefeated in last five hone matches and balance home(away of the two teams is similar.
With today problems in attack for Nottingham, i see Leicester favourite here
