MATCH FACTS Head-to-head • Second-half goals from Dexter Blackstock and Billy Sharp gave Nottingham Forest a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture in December, which gives them the possibility of a first double over Burnley in 36 years. • Burnley are chasing a fifth straight home Championship victory over Forest, and have scored five goals in two of the previous three corresponding fixtures. • Four goals for Burnley would see them totalling 100 in home league games against Forest, two would see them reaching 150 in competitive home and away matches. Forest are four shy of 150 in league and cup contests against the Clarets. Burnley • Mid-table Burnley have drawn three and lost one of their last four since a 1-0 victory away to Charlton; their only maximum in 11 Championship outings. • The Clarets have only recorded one home victory in this calendar year; 1-0 against Crystal Palace on 12 January. • Nottingham Forest could become the fourth club to do the double over Burnley this season, who've already been beaten home and away by Leicester, Brighton and Huddersfield. Nottingham Forest • Nottingham Forest narrowly missed out on matching the club record of seven successive league wins, when held to a 2-2 draw by Brighton on Saturday, which took their unbeaten run to eight games (W6, D2) and kept them without defeat since the return of Billy Davies. • Top of the Championship's "form" table, Forest are 10 points short of an automatic promotion spot, with seven games remaining. • The City Ground club have already registered home and away victories over Charlton, Sheffield Wednesday, Peterborough and Wolves - Burnley could become the fifth. • Chris Cohen is set to make his 300th career league appearance.
