Brighton & Hove Albion vs Nottingham Forest live stream and match preview

Looking for a Brighton & Hove Albion vs Nottingham Forest live stream? We've got you covered. 

Roberto De Zerbi's side will be looking to return to winning ways after a 2-0 defeat by Brentford (opens in new tab) on Friday. Brighton (opens in new tab) are now without a victory in their last three games, while only one of their last five outings has ended with the Seagulls collecting all three points. 

As a result of their dip in form, Brighton have dropped to seventh in the standings, but a win here would move them up to fifth - at least until Manchester United (opens in new tab) and Newcastle (opens in new tab) play again on Wednesday. Albion have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of De Zerbi's three matches in charge, so there is room for improvement defensively.

Nottingham Forest (opens in new tab) suffered their seventh defeat of the campaign on Saturday, going down 1-0 to Wolves (opens in new tab) at Molineux. Steve Cooper's side returned to the foot of the table after Leicester (opens in new tab) drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace (opens in new tab), with a four-point margin separating them from 17th.

Cooper was backed with a new contract earlier this month, but he will still come under pressure unless results improve soon. As a consequence of their poor start, Forest are odds-on favourites for relegation.

Brighton will have to make do without Jakub Moder, Kaoru Mitoma and Enock Mwepu for the visit of Cooper's men.

Forest will be unable to call upon the services of Omar Richards, Jack Colback and Moussa Niakhate. Serge Aurier requires a late fitness test and Lewis O'Brien will also be checked after illness, while Renan Lodi is a doubt.

Brighton: LLDWL

Nottingham Forest: LDLLL

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, and FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
