Nottingham Forest pack their bags to visit Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough at tea-time on Saturday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Forest will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The previous match played between the two at Hillsborough was more than three years back, in September 2009, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Championship match.
