WBA v Forest: Attack vs defence?

Second-place West Bromwich Albion host third in the table Nottingham Forest in the Championship's game of the weekend with the Baggies looking to put clear daylight between themselves and the play-off places and the Reds keen to underline their own promotion credentials.

Roberto Di Matteo's side are the division's top home league goalscorers, notching 25 in 12 games while Billy Davies has produced the meanest away side in the section with only 7 goals conceded from a dozen matches.

Albion's home form has not been quite as fluent of late. December saw them defeated by Cardiff, fight back from 2 goals down to draw with QPR and then labour to beat bottom of the table Peterborough United.

Forest meanwhile remain undefeated on the road but have won only a quarter of those games, drawing the rest and also drawing some barbs about defensive play.
