Both Fulham and the Reds should be in good spirits after stoppage-time winners in their respective weekend fixtures against Reading and Derby County.
The Whites have extended the loan stay of Manchester City's 19-year-old midfielder Seko Fofana who will now remain in West London for the remainder of the season after making 10 appearances since his initial move.
Victory over the Royals came on the back of an FA Cup triumph at Wolves, Fulham winning a penalty shoot-out at Molineux in blizzard conditions.
Captain Scott Parker told his club's official website: "We need to recover now, rest up a little bit because we’ve had a few hard games. So we’ll rest up quickly and go into the Forest game and hopefully we can carry on from a great week by grabbing a third straight win."
