Spurs will now welcome Forest on Sunday 7 April and kick-off time is now set for 6pm.

It was initially scheduled for Monday 8 April at 8pm.

The fixture has been moved due to rail strikes.

London Underground workers represented by ASLEF are not going to work and c2c, Gatwick Express, Great Northern, Greater Anglia, South Western Railway, Southeastern, Southern and Thameslink services will also be impacted by union action.

The Prem have said London Underground, London Overground and Greater Anglia services that serve the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will run near full services on April 7 for the game.

For Forest’s travelling supporters, East Midlands Railway trains to London St Pancras are expected to run smoothly.

Fans not attending the game will still be able to watch on Sky Sports.

A statement from Forest read: “The Premier League apologises unreservedly to supporters of both clubs, and all those affected, for the inconvenience and disruption caused by this late fixture change.

“The change has been made due to matters beyond the League’s control, namely the decision to implement rail and tube strikes on Monday 8 April and the subsequent reduction in available travel services.

“This has resulted in the local authority’s Safety Advisory Group determining that it is not possible to stage the match with the required levels of safety for attending fans.”

Home Wins – Alex Ferguson

Tottenham won the return fixture 2-0 earlier this season via goals from Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski.

Ange Postecoglou’s men are in the battle for Champions League qualification.

While ex-Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo is fighting to keep Forest in the division following their four-point deduction.
