Nottingham Forest caretaker manager Gary Brazil believes that his side can hurt Fulham on the counter attack when they face each other on Tuesday.
The two sides meet at Craven Cottage in the Championship and go into the game after contrasting results at the weekend.
Forest were humiliated 5-1 away to Fulham on Saturday and also lost goalkeeper Stephen Henderson to an Achilles injury, which is set to see him miss the rest of the season.
Meanwhile, Fulham secured a dramatic 3-2 victory over Wigan as substitute Neeskens Kevano scored a 94th minute winner.
Brazil claims that his side can cause Fulham difficulties on the break as they are vulnerable to it.
“Fulham commit forward and will leave themselves vulnerable on the counter attack and that is something we can take advantage of,” Brazil said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Forest are currently seven points above the relegation places and have recently announced that Brazil will remain in charge until the end of the season.
The Midlands club have enjoyed wins over Aston Villa and Rotherham recently, but were dealt a crushing blow against Norwich.
They will now try and force a result against an attack-minded Fulham team, who are regarded by most as one of the most eye catching teams to watch.
The Londoners are full of attacking talents and play with a great fluency, but Brazil feels they can be punished defensively.
