Two of the form teams in the Championship go head to head at Hillsborough this lunchtime, as Sheffield Wednesday play host to Nottingham Forest in a meeting of two former Premier League teams.

Both teams have made unbeaten starts to the season, and Wednesday will be hoping for a home win following last week's impressive 3-2 win at Middlesbrough

Stuart Gray's side have won four and drawn two of their opening six games in all competitions, and the big signing of St. Johnstone striker Stevie May has given the Owls a huge boost as they chase a playoff spot - which they currently hold, though it is of course early days.

Forest will have to keep in form striker Atdhe Nuhiu quiet, and will call upon former Chelsea defender Michael Mancienne in order to do it as Stuart Pearce's side look to keep top spot in the Championship. With five wins and one draw from their opening six games in all competitions, it's been an incredible start to Pearce's reign in charge at the City Ground.

£7m duo Britt Assombalonga and Michail Antonio start, whilst there is also a place for former Arsenal midfielder Henri Lansbury as the two sides will be hoping for a win after April's 3-3 draw between the two teams.
