While the hosts were beaten 4-1 by Blackpool in their FA Cup third-round tie last time out, while the visitors managed to take Liverpool to a replay following a 2-2 draw.

Nottingham Forest are within touching distance of reaching the EFL Cup semi-final for the first time since the 1991-92 season, where they eventually went down to Manchester United in the final.

Their most recent quarter-final tie ended in defeat, losing 3-1 on aggregate to Tranmere Rovers in 1993-94, but they have already notched up a tournament-high nine goals in victories over Grimsby Town, Tottenham Hotspur and Blackburn Rovers this time around.

Two defeats from five across all competitions since the return of club football is hardly a disastrous record for Forest, who also have a six-game unbeaten run at the City Ground.

Goals from Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah cancelled out Goncalo Guedes’ opener before Hwang Hee-chan leveled the scores again, and Wolves through they had knocked the holders out right at the death through Toti, only for the offside flag to go up after Matheus Nunes apparently received the ball behind the last defender.

However, a lack of available camera angles meant that VAR could not intervene, forcing Wolves to fit another fixture into their schedule as they also try to pull away from the threat of Premier League relegation, sitting second from bottom in the standings.

It has been 27 years since Wolves last progressed to the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup, losing to Aston Villa in 1996, and not since winning the crown for the second time in 1980 have the visitors gone as far as the final four.

Nottingham Forest Team News

Omar Richards, Jesse Lingard, Giulian Biancone, Cheikhou Kouyate and Moussa Niakhate will miss out for Nottingham Forest.

Neco Williams will need assessing after picking up a knock in the FA Cup, but he was always likely to drop out for Serge Aurier anyway, while Taiwo Awoniyi could lead the line.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Daniel Podence will aim to shake off a knock in time to make the Wolves squad for this game, but Chiquinho, Boubacar Traore, Pedro Neto and Sasa Kalajdzic are all out of contention.

Rayan Ait-Nouri came off with a knock at Anfield and will need assessment, but Hugo Bueno is more than capable of filling in on the left-hand side.
