Nottingham Forest had already seen off Grimsby and Spurs when they were drawn against Blackburn in the last round. Goals from Jesse Lingard, Taiwo Awoniyi and a Brennan Johnson brace sent them through after they'd been pegged back by Rovers' Scott Wharton late in the first half, but the Premier League class of Steve Cooper's side showed through. Forest were dumped out of the FA Cup by Blackpool at the weekend, but they'll be hoping to be in the pot for the semi-final draw come the end of the game today.

New signing Gustavo Scarpa is the only survivor from the defeat to the Seasiders, with Steve Cooper making 10 changes to the starting XI. Taiwo Awoniyi missed that game through injury, so Johnson and Gibbs-White start up front.

Wolves might be just two points off the bottom of the Premier League table but they're still fighting in both domestic cup competitions. Having already seen off Leeds and Preston in previous Carabao Cup rounds, they defeated League Two side Gillingham last time out, with a Raúl Jiménez penalty opening the scoring and Rayan Aït-Nouri putting the game beyond doubt in stoppage time. A replay with Liverpool awaits in the FA Cup but Julen Lopetegui will be keen to keep this run going to build confidence in his side.

The Wolves boss has made six changes to his side tonight, with Jose Sa back in goal, while Hee Chan Hwang joins Guedes and Jimenez in attack. Joao Moutinho is also fit to start.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm GMT (2.45pm ET) today, Wednesday 11th January. Read on to find out on how to watch a Nottingham Forest vs Wolves live stream, wherever you are in the world, on TV, online and on mobile.
