On paper, this is a match that both teams will be looking to win, but a draw may not be a bad result considering the decent run that both sides are enjoying at present.
Watford have won four of their last five and had a hard fought win on Saturday, beating Charlton 3-2 at The Valley. Forest are also on a high, having taken seven points from the last nine available.
Although both sides are still involved in the relegation dogfight, both are showing signs of breaking away. Watford sit two places above us and just one point ahead in the table. A win for either side would be a massive boost, but I’d take a draw right now if it was on offer.

Nottingham Forest Team News:
News from the Reds’ OS, says that Paul Anderson is the only new concern ahead of the game. McCleary is expected to replace the winger, who went off in the 1-1 draw with the Swans at the weekend. Morgan is available for contention again after serving a one match ban and will probably replace Brecks at the back.
Player to watch: Robert Earnshaw
He’s paying off his £2.65M fee nicely. 14 goals so far this campaign shows that the midget still knows where the net is.
