The low-down on Saturday's opponents
Last night’s victory over Preston added to an already impressive string of results, which has got Nottingham Forest fans gearing themselves up for a promotion push.
Forest have gone since the end of November without a defeat, and are well placed inside the play-offs.
The goals have been shared around well by Billy Davies’ men, with Andy Reid and Simon Cox leading the way for a Forest side who sit six points off the automatic spots.
Their defeat to Reading in November has been the only Forest reverse since Blackpool claimed a 1-0 win at The City Ground.
How they’re getting on…
They’ve won their last three games in the league, against Blackburn, Watford and Yeovil.
Last time out Forest won 2-0 at Preston in the FA Cup, and recorded a routine win over Yeovil on Sunday.
Prior to their run of three successive victories, Davies’ men drew with Reading and Bolton.
Man in charge…
Tomorrow Davies will have been back in charge of Forest for a year, having come close to taking the club up on two previous occasions.
Last season he took the club to the edge of the play-offs, and now looks like guiding them to a top six finish, at the least.
Pulling the strings in the midfield is Andy Reid, who has nine goals to his name so far this season.
The Irishman’s spell at Blackpool was frustrating, but he is now back to his best with the captain’s armband.
Away from home…
Forest have lost just twice away from home with campaign, at Wigan and Yeovil earlier in the season.
However, in the league they’ve not won away from home in the last three, since a December victory at Sheffield Wednesday.
