IT has been 23 long years, but Nottingham Forest finally have Premier League football back at the City Ground as they take on West Ham.
Forest lost their opening game of the season to Newcastle at St James’ Park last weekend as Jesse Lingard made his debut.

The Hammers also lost, but to champions Man City as Erling Haaland ran riot at the London Stadium.
Both sides need to get their first wins of the season under their belts, but West Ham can’t afford to think they have it easy.

But with Premier League experience behind them, West Ham’s confidence will be hard to match.
