Latest Nottingham Forest news from NottinghamshireLive as statement provided on Reds’ next fixture
Nottingham Forest’s match against Fulham on Friday night is scheduled to go ahead as planned.
The Reds had been due to make the trip to face Leeds United this evening, but that game – along with the rest of the Premier League fixtures for the weekend just gone – was postponed following the death of Her Majesty The Queen. An update has now been provided on the next round of fixtures.
Steve Cooper’s side will host the Cottagers at the City Ground for a big clash under the lights, with an 8pm kick-off. A statement from the club said: "The Premier League has confirmed that our fixture on Friday night against Fulham at the City Ground will go ahead as planned."

"All Premier League fixtures, including our match against Leeds United, were postponed last weekend as a mark of respect following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Tributes will be paid to The Queen at all matches being played during the period of National Mourning."
The Premier League said: "Premier League fixtures will resume this weekend after a pause to the season as a mark of respect following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Seven of the 10 Premier League fixtures this weekend will be played, with three matches postponed due to events surrounding The Queen’s funeral.
"In addition, kick-off times will change for two Premier League matches. Matches postponed on Sunday 18 September are Chelsea’s matches against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, and Manchester United’s home match v Leeds United. Brighton & Hove Albion’s fixture against Crystal Palace, that was due to be played at 15:00 BST on Saturday 17 September, will also remain postponed.
"This weekend’s match schedule is: Friday 16 September – 20:00 Aston Villa v Southampton (Sky Sports), 20:00 Nottingham Forest v Fulham. Saturday 17 September – 12:30 Wolves v Man City (BT Sport), 15:00 Newcastle v AFC Bournemouth, 17:30 Spurs v Leicester City (Sky Sports), postponed Brighton v Crystal Palace. Sunday 18 September – 12:00 Brentford v Arsenal (Sky Sports), 14:15 Everton v West Ham (Sky Sports), postponed Chelsea v Liverpool, postponed Man Utd v Leeds.
"Following extensive consultation with clubs, police, local Safety Advisory Groups and other relevant authorities, there was no other option but to postpone the three fixtures. The Premier League would like to thank the UK Football Policing Unit and other police forces across the country, as well as our broadcast partners, for their support during this process, and will continue to liaise with them ahead of the weekend.
"For the matches being played during the period of National Mourning, tributes will be paid to The Queen at Premier League stadiums. New dates for the postponed matches will be announced in due course."
After this weekend, there is a planned international break. The league action then resumes next month, with Forest away to Leicester City on Monday, October 3.
The Reds are looking to end a three-match losing streak when they get back out on the pitch. After falling to Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, they suffered a second half collapse and were beaten 3-2 by Bournemouth last time out, having held a two-goal lead at the break.
