Blunts Attack Looking Sharp

The two biggest downfalls in a sorry season for Nottingham Forest, have been a leaky defence and a goal shy strikeforce. The visit of Sheffield United to the City Ground tonight, will surely test them both.

The Blunts have a wealth of talent and experience to choose from in attack and can boast one of the most lethal finishers in the division in James Beattie. The former Everton frontman, has already bagged 10 goals in 19 appearances for the Blades this season.

Forest boss Colin Calderwood told the official site. 'We've got to be wary of United. They had a fantastic result at Charlton recently (5-2) and they are very hard to beat on their travels, because of their organisation and the prominence of alot of players.'

As well as Beattie in attack, they have former Scunthorpe hotshot Billy Sharp, who was a former target of CC's prior to signing for United and Darius Henderson, who cost 2M from Watford in the summer. As well as having bags of experience up front, they have Gary Naysmith shoring up the defence and Gary Speed calling the shots in midfield. Our leaky defence will have it's work cut out to make sure the Blunts are kept at bay.
