Nottingham Forest (A) Match Preview

Nottingham Forest
vs.
Reading

City Ground

1st November 2011

7.45pm KO

Reading travel to the County Ground to face Forest, with the Royals eight games unbeaten and Forest experiencing their first loss under new manager Steve Cotterill against Hull last Saturday, it will be sure to be a fantastic encounter.

Vital Quotes:

Reading boss Brian McDermott - 'Forest is always a great place to play football and I look forward to going there. Every game that you play in this league seems to be fairly even, there's never a 'gimme' in the Championship.'

Forest manager Steve Cotterill - 'I can only thank the lads for how they've been with me because they have been first class. What you have to remember is I can only pick 11 players - that's the difficult part of being a manager because you have to keep another nine or 10 players happy as well.'

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Steve Cotterill will be able to call on Guy Moussi again, as the big centre-midfielder has seen out his ban. Manchester City loanee Greg Cunningham is out with an ankle problem.

Player to watch: Ishmael Miller

The powerful former West Brom forward has made a decent start to life at Forest, scoring 3 goals so far.

Reading Team News:

Brian McDermott has no new injury worries ahead of this tie with Jay Tabb back to full fitness.

Player to watch: Kaspars Gorkss

The experienced Latvian captain has been a hit so far at the Madejski stadium, improving the defence that has kept 3 clean sheets in the past 5 fixtures.

Match Prediction:

I'm going for a narrow 2-1 victory to the Royals

Next Fixtures:
