NOT Vs FUL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Battle for fourth place heats up with today’s encounter set to play a defining role for either side.
Adjacent to each other in the Championship 2019-20 with just the two points separating them, when Nottingham Forrest and Fulham go at loggerheads today, we are set to be in for an intoxicating concoction. Today’s encounter is one which will not only determine which side ends up in 4th place but also help the winner all but seal their spot in the ensuing stage of the competition.
Although Fulham currently sit above Nottingham Forrest in the points tally, it’s a position which is increasingly looking untenable for them. The side has been in skewed form since the league has returned, skittled to three defeats in its last five encounters to allow Nottingham Forrest to slowly wipe away the deficit separating the two sides.
What does bode well for the visiting team though is their two wins on the bounce following those appalling results, one which have allowed them to hang onto fourth position. However, their spot is going to be under serious threat when the brunt of the home side comes calling, a Nottingham Forrest side currently on an unbeaten four match spree.
Be it points, goals scored or conceded, there’s absolutely nothing which separates these two sides this season. Both have been spitting images of each other, a narrative which is going to see us be engulfed in an edge of the seat thriller between two sides who’ll leave no stone unturned to accrue the three points.
Fulham’s current predicament while scoring is what makes for a cause for concern for them, one which should allow the home team to scram its way through to a pivotal win.

NOT Vs FUL Dream11 Picks
Ever since the league has returned, Nottingham Forest’s Brice Samba has been in scintillating touch for Nottingham Forrest. The side’s goal-keeper was responsible for the side’s 1-1 draw against Derby, a tie where he was asked to showcase his sprawling skill set as he rifled his way through to a score of saves.
The shot stopper is going to be joined up by a duo for the encounter. At a time when Fulham have waned on the attacking front and are set to be devoid of the services of Mitrovic, the home side will be quietly confident of shunning their opponents from scoring today.
In addition to that likelihood, fullback Matthew Cash made for a must have pick with the player having popped up with the 5 assists for his side this season He’s going to be paired alongside Yuri Ribeiro, two players whose expansive skillset has seen them maraud their way in both the dockets of the side’s gameplan.

Sammy Ameobi has played the perfect partner to him with his 8 assists with the two moving in unison to manifest match winning displays for the side.
