Nottingham Forest return to Premier League action this weekend when they face Sheffield United.

The Reds go into the fixture continuing their quest to maintain their top-flight status for another campaign. Forest are battling with Luton Town and Burnley to avoid relegation to the Championship.

Everton are already safe from relegation, as are Brentford. Sheffield United are bottom of the Premier League table and have already been confirmed as relegated to the second tier of English football.

Victory for Forest would boost the club's chances of Premier League survival for another campaign. Nuno Espirito Santo's side go into the fixture against the Blades on the back of consecutive defeats at the hands of Manchester City and Everton, but will be determined to get the three points in their trip to South Yorkshire.
