Cambridge (home) [Carabao Cup] W 6-0
Birmingham City (home) W 3-0
Queens Park Rangers (away) W 1-3

Nottingham Forest last 5 results in all competitions:

Preston North End (home) D 1-1
Derby County (home) [Carabao Cup] W 3-0
Fulham (away) W 1-2
Charlton Athletic (away) D 1-1
Birmingham City (home) W 3-0

The danger man for both sides:

Swansea City: Borja Bastón

The Spaniard has made a promising start to the Championship campaign scoring 5 goals and getting 1 assist in 6 appearances. After joining the club in 2016 for a £15.5 million fee, the 27 year old had a slow start to his Swansea City career after only scoring once in 18 appearances but now he is currently showing Swansea City that he can score goals after being loaned out to Malaga & Alaves.

Nottingham Forest: Lewis Grabban

Lewis Grabban is a very experienced Championship striker who has the quality for scoring lots of goals in this division. He has already got 4 goals this season and is hungry for more goals. Since joining the club in 2018 from Bournemouth the 31 year old has netted 20 goals in 44 appearances for the East Midlands club which makes his goal total of 129.

This will be a tough game for the Swans this weekend and this could be the potential starting lineup:

GK: Woodman
RB: Roberts
CB. Rodon
CB: Van Der Hoorn
LB: Bidwell
CM: Grimes
CM: Fulton
CAM: Dhanda
LM: Celina
RM: Ayew
ST: Borja

If Swansea City win, they are guaranteed to stay top spot.
