Breaking News ! "I don't think people realise how good they are," was Lee Johnson's assessment of Nottingham Forest in November as Bristol City were held to a 0-0 draw at Ashton Gate which, at the time, was viewed as a slightly frustrating result. It hasn't exactly been a complete contrast in fortunes since - with Forest experiencing their own wobbles - but, generally speaking, the gap between the teams heading into Wednesday night's fixture now looks significant. Whereas Forest have taken ownership of a place in the top six and have begun the restart with a win and a draw, City continue to fall from view with no wins in seven and two very poor results since the Championship resumed.

Johnson's side have slipped to 12th in the table but just five points separate them and sixth-placed Cardiff City, and victory in the Midlands could propel them back within striking distance. Speaking ahead of the game, Forest manager Sabri Lamouchi referenced the amount of changes Johnson has made to his line-up - seven between Blackburn and Sheffield Wednesday with more likely to occur at the City Ground - but is expecting a significantly better Robins team that has shown up over the last 180 minutes. "They have changed a lot of players and changed the system, but they have a lot of options, especially in the offensive part - with four, five, six, seven attackers," Lamouchi told Nottinghamshire Live.

. "Birmingham, the second Championship game at home, we won 3-0 and we absolutely controlled the game, but I don’t remember another game like that - it’s impossible. The Championship is not like that. "But the situation is not the same for some clubs, some players and some teams. Without fans, the situation is absolutely different. Bristol City will not be an easy game. They are a good team."

Johnson has indicated he will rotate his squad as they play the second of three matches inside six days. Lamouchi highlighting the options Johnson possesses in attack is pertinent because that area of the field could change once again as it's unlikely Benik Afobe will start a second straight match after eight months out with an ACL injury. That opens up the chance of a recall for Famara Diedhiou, who came on in the second half against Wednesday, and possibly Niclas Eliasson, with the Senegalese striker and Swedish winger combining so effectively all season.
