Nottingham Forest team news and predicted XI vs Southampton

Nottingham Forest Team News

Steve Cooper’s walking wounded that is the Nottingham Forest first-team squad remains a defining factor across performances in the 2022-23 Premier League that could potentially be destined for relegation as Forest sits in the relegation zone with little hope of achieving safety come the end of matchday 38.

No less than nine players are sure to miss out on the action in what is a relegation six-pointer against bottom-feeders Southampton at The City Ground, with additional questions surrounding the fitness and availability of star forward Brennan Johnson as well as Gustavo Scarpa and Danilo.

Johnson is a doubt to start but could be pressed into service if he passes late assessments, but Scarpa and Danilo are likely to feature much if at all on the day. As such, there are likely to be few changes outside of any necessary gap-filling, but Forest’s recent win against Brighton will at the very least serve up an avenue for positivity that hopefully will carry forward.
