Nottingham Forest travel to Sheffield United this weekend with a place in the quarter finals of the FA Cup up for grabs.

Forest are the favourites for Sunday's encounter. They sit a comfortable fifth in the Championship, having not lost their last 16 games.

Sheffield United, on the other hand, are struggling in League One, battling to get out of the relegation zone. The last time the two clubs met in 2011, United won 2-1.

Guy Moussi and Diamal Abdoun could miss out on Sunday due to injury. Meanwhile, Henri Lansbury, David Vaughan, Chris Cohen, Kelvin Wilson and Dexter Blackstock all remain long-term absentees.

The last time Forest made it to the last eight of the competition was in 1996, so Billy Davies' side will be ready to go come Sunday.

You can follow the game on the ITV Sport website.
