Nottingham Forest entertain Preston North End in the FA Cup fourth round at the City Ground on Friday night.

Forest are unbeaten in their last 10 matches in all competitions, a run that lasts all the way back to the November 29 when they lost 3-2 to Reading.

The Reds demolished Premier League side West Ham in the third round, beating them 5-0 but will be keen not to undo their work by getting knocked out by lower league opposition.

Preston are currently fourth in League One, nine points off leaders Leyton Orient and have only lost once since the turn of the year.

The League One side also caused an upset in the third round when they knocked out Championship side Ipswich Town.

Preston have goals in them and have only failed to score once since the October 12.

Forest defender Eric Lichaj is set to return to the team but Henri Lansbury is suspended. Guy Moussi, Darius Henderson, Matt Derbyshire, Radoslaw Majewski and Djamel Abdoun are all available for selection also.

Lilywhites striker Kevin Davis will not feature as a result of picking up a red card in their last game against Coventry but Simon Grayson does have an injury-free squad to choose from.

Both teams will be looking to keep their impressive league form going in the cup as they play for a place in the fifth round.

Preston and Nottingham Forest have both won the competition twice and it is the eighth meeting between the two sides. Forest winning three times and Preston twice.
