Forest make the short trip up the M1 to Bramall Lane today, to face the Blunts of Sheffield in another vital game for both teams.
Forest will as usual be well backed by a large away following, for what is one of the most eagerly awaited trips of the season for supporters. There's always a little extra about a game with the Blunts, with some great encounters over the years. Forest fans wont forget the heartache of Paul Harts' side being being beaten in the Playoff semi final of 2004.
Both teams will be fighting for the points in this one for differing reasons. United sit third in the table, just a point behind second placed Brum and have genuine hopes of automatic promotion. Forest on the other hand, sit fourth from bottom, just two points above the drop zone and will be hoping to build on the dramatic win over Bristol City at the weekend.
The form guide makes the Blunts red hot favourites, with them having won their last five games. They had a decent win at stuttering Reading on Friday and will be looking to add to that with a win over us. Billy Davies though, will be telling his troops that they are a match for anyone in the division, after their 3-2 win over City on Saturday. We all know he's lieing, but you never know....the players might buy it.
The meeting at the City Ground earlier this season, saw United take the points in a disappointing and dour 1-0 affair. If we could just get a point today, it would be a massive step in our bid for survival, but that's easier said than done.
Billy Davies will wait for news on the fitness of Moussi and Earnshaw. Both are carrying knocks after the game at the weekend. United have concerns of their own, with Jamie Ward nursing an ankle injury.
The two sides have a long and illustrious history and in 95 League meetings, Forest have won 39, lost 33 and drawn 23. On paper this should be a straightforward win for the Blunts, but I'm going for a 1-1 draw. More in hope, than with any real judgement.
