Confirmed Nottingham Forest line-up v Sheffield Wednesday: Brazil makes four changes

By Danny Wright

Gary Brazil has made four changes ahead of Nottingham Forest’s Championship fixture with Sheffield Wednesday at the City Ground.

Jordan Smith starts in goal as Eric Lichaj, David Vaughan and Jamie Ward return to the side as Brazil looks to freshen up the side that lost 3-2 to Fulham on Tuesday.

Teenager Ben Brereton continues to keep Britt Assombalonga on the bench.

Forest can ease fears of relegation with a win and move 10 points clear of the bottom three if results go their way.

Wednesday have managed to get the better of Forest in each of their last four league encounters, but they have never lost five in a row to the Yorkshire club.

The Reds go into Saturday’s game from two back-to-back defeats which have seen them concede eight goals. They are also the worst team in the league for keeping hold of leads, having lost more points from taking the lead (23).

Before the midweek loss at Craven Cottage, Brazil’s side were hammered 5-1 by Norwich.
