PREVIEW: Hull City v Nottingham Forest

After a creditable four points from six during back-to-back away games, the Tigers are on telly this Saturday tea-time for the skirmish with Nottingham Forest. With two home games now to come, City are in prime position to propel themselves up the table, with confidence currently being restored. Yet, the spectre of doom is never far away given Ehab Allam's recent comments in the local paper - and the fans have responded with a fright night experience dubbed 'Allamween' for the match. See the poster below.

Fright Night at the Circle - Are you ready for 'Allamween'?

Back to matters on the pitch and boss Leomid Slutsky - arguably for the first time since his arrival from Moscow - will have a selection headache for tomorrow's match. Striker Fraizer Campbell came off the bench to net the winner at Barnsley last time out, so will be pushing for a start. Plus, midfielder David Meyler is back after serving a one match ban, for the two yellows received during the draw at Norwich City two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, it's fair to say Nottingham Forest have joined City with a middling start to their season, but do sit two points and two places better off than the Tigers in 12th place. Manager Mark Warburton does have a potential defensive worry to deal with, arriving at Hull City without a recognised left back if Danny Fox and Armand Traore fail fitness tests. Joe Worrall is on stand by. Hull City's recent record against Nottingham Forest isn't too shabby either, with five wins from the the previous seven encounters. It's poised rather nicely...

Finally, let's not forget Les Mutrie RIP. The City striking legend will receive a minute's applause ahead of the game, while the fans have arranged for a huge banner commemorating his time at the club to be unfurled ahead of the match.

Don't forget the Hull City fans forum returns at 7pm this Friday evening on Hull Kingston Radio 107.4FM. You can download the free app, tune in on your radio, or listen online if you click here!
