Weekend loan preview

Elmo's Hull City closing in on Championship top-spot.

Ahmed Elmohamady’s Hull City will be looking to close the gap on Championship leaders Cardiff City to just one point.

The Tigers have won their last four home games but will face a stern test in Billy Davies’ revitalised Nottingham Forest who have won all five games since the Scot took over, propelling them into the play-off places.

Elsewhere, Ji Dong-Won’s Augsburg travel to Hamburg in the German Bundesliga.

Hamburg are sixth in the German top flight and searching for a place in European football next season whilst Augsburg are looking to move away from the relegation play-off spot.

Meanwhile, Jordan Pickford will look to continue his impressive form for Alfreton Town as the Reds host Gateshead in the Conference Premier.

England under-19 international Pickford has impressed the Alfreton fans in his short stint in Nottinghamshire, with the Reds unbeaten in his four games with the club.

Billy Knott may return for Woking as the Cardinals look to move into the top-half of the Conference with a win over the league’s bottom side AFC Telford United.

Johnny Maddison is yet to feature for Crawley Town but will hope to make a debut as they travel to Walsall in League One.
