Sam Allardyce’s West Ham side travel north to Nottingham in Sunday’s early FA Cup third round kick off, hoping the competition could be a healthy distraction to some worrying league form.
They will be without key midfield duo Kevin Nolan and Mark Noble though, meaning Allardyce is expected to field a young and inexperienced side.
The hosts are waiting on news of Darius Henderson, Djamel Abdoun and David Vaughn, but all three could make the match day squad.
Forest famously beat West ham 4-0 in the 1991 semi-final under Brian Clough, but went on to lose the final to Spurs.
