Rivals Nottingham Forest and Leicester City go head-to-head on Saturday with both teams still harbouring ambitions of a top-six finish.

The Foxes are two points off the Play-Offs so know only a win would be good enough for them to stand any chance of taking part in the end-of-season festivities, while Forest are level on points with sixth-placed Bolton Wanderers going into the weekend's schedule.

Here, we preview the big game with the help of a supporter from each club.

What happened in your last match?

RM: Greg Halford scored inside the opening 10 minutes at The Den against Millwall and we won 1-0, a pretty uninspiring game but the win was the most important bit and we got that.

AR: We lost to Watford at home last Friday 2-1, with Nathaniel Cholabah scoring that goal to win it. We probably could and should have took a point but it wasn't to be.

Why is this game important?

RM: This could be a massive game or it could come to nothing. We can't afford to lose or else any hope of the Play-Offs is gone, but even if we do get some points and Bolton and Crystal Palace both win then it is nothing more than a formality. Although getting one over on a local rival would be nice.

AR: It's the last game of the season and we have to win it to stand any chance of a Play-Off finish. It's quite frustrating as a fan because we were on course for promotion but have fell away dramatically. It's obviously a match against our rivals, too - these games are always important no matter what time of the season it is.

How do you see this match going?

RM: I think it will be tight to start with as neither team can afford to concede early but the game will open up as it goes on with both teams searching for the all-important goal, or two.

AR: It will be open with both teams needing something to end the day in the top six. Forest have improved under Billy Davies but we have nothing to lose so should just go for it.

Who should we keep our eye on?

RM: Our whole defence really, we have struggled to hit the back of the net recently but it has been our defensive displays - we have conceded just once in our last three games - that have kept us in touching distance of the Play-Offs.

AR: Chris Wood is a very good player and has a few goals this season, as does David Nugent. Lloyd Dyer is my favourite player and he can cause defenders all sorts of problems on his day.

Any memories of previous encounters?

RM: In the reverse fixture we fought back from being behind twice to take a point. But our last big win over the Foxes was in the 2009/10 season at the City Ground when Robbie Earnshaw scored a hat-trick in a 5-1 win.

AR: I have so many memories of matches against Forest - some good, some bad. We had an eventful 2-2 draw at our place earlier this season and also beat them 4-0 in the FA Cup last season. The season before that we lost 3-2 at their place which was hard to stomach, as was the 5-1 defeat in 2009.

Score prediction?

RM: I'm going for a 1-0 win, and it will be enough to lift us above Bolton and into the Play-Offs.

AR: I obviously want us to win but I honestly can't see it. I'll guess a 2-1 defeat.
