Fulham are in insanely good form, its six wins in their last six and in all of their last five games they have kept a clean sheet. Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored 20 goals this season. The Championship record in one campaign is 31 by Ivan Toney for Brentford last season. Mitrovic, who is fresh from scoring the winning goal versus Portugal to send Serbia to the World Cup Finals, looks set to smash the record. The 27-year-old may be in the form of his life averaging a 7.40, the third highest in the league.
Reading signed former Liverpool, Newcastle, West Ham and England striker, Andy Carroll this week on a short-term deal. However, it should be 18-year-old, Jahmari Clarke, getting the start on Saturday versus Nottingham Forest. Last time out the Royals beat Birmingham 2-1 with impact sub, Clarke, scoring both goals and earning a fantastic 7.98 rating.
Nottingham Forest right-back, Djed Spence, has been a revelation since his arrival on loan from Championship rivals Middlesbrough. Neil Warnock was relieved of his Boro duties and replaced with Chris Wilder; he may be keen to recall Spence who is rating on average at 6.68.
Luton have made a solid start to the season and are just two points of a play-off place. 6ft 5in centre-back and captain, Sonny Bradley, has been a rock at the back so far this season. He rates at 6.68.
