Head coach Steve Cooper has named his Nottingham Forest squad to face West Ham United in today’s crucial Premier League clash.

The Reds head into the game at London Stadium buoyed by their 1-1 draw with reigning champions Manchester City last weekend. Chris Wood’s first goal for the club saw Cooper’s side come from behind to claim a point at the City Ground.

Before this afternoon’s kick-off, they sit 13th in the table, five points from the relegation zone, having lost once in their last seven league games. Meanwhile, the Hammers sit in third place.

Forest will try to improve his away form in the capital. But they are still hampered by a significant number of injuries, with Serge Aurier the latest name added to the list.

With the right-back unavailable, Neco Williams enters the first XI as one of two changes to the squad since last weekend. The other change is the return of Wood to the starting eleven, with Danilo among the substitutes.

Williams will line up alongside Joe Worrall, Felipe and Renan Lodi on the baseline, ahead of goalkeeper Keylor Navas. Jonjo Shelvey, Remo Freuler and Jack Colback keep their places in midfield.
