Nottingham Forest v Millwall team line-ups: Lions unchanged for City Ground test – with midweek scorer Smith on the bench


Millwall have named an unchanged side from the one that drew 1-1 at Bournemouth on Tuesday night.

Lions manager Gary Rowett sticks with the 5-2-3 formation that worked so well at the City Ground last season.

Danny McNamara keeps his place as right wing-back for the third successive game in all competitions.

Kenneth Zohore starts in what could be his final appearance before his loan from West Bromwich Albion expires. Troy Parrott and Jed Wallace make up the front three.

Matt Smith, who scored a hat-trick in this fixture last season, starts on the bench.

On-loan Fulham winger Anthony Knockaert and former Charlton striker Lyle Taylor are on the bench for Nottingham Forest.
