Pre-Season Fixtures Changes.
Forest supporters will be keen to get an early glimpse of Stuart Pearce's side via their pre-season fixture schedule - so, those planning a trip to Portugal will need to amend their plans.
Forest had been due to play SC Braga, but with the appointment of their own new manager, they have opted for a different pre-season schedule of their own and thus, that fixture has now been cancelled.
To their credit, NFFC, Brian Eastick & co have acted quickly - in the knowledge that some fans will have already made their travel arrangements & thus, NFFC have announced the 2 changes to the sides they will face in Portugal.
Forest will now play Porto B on Wednesday 16 July (kick-off 6pm), followed by Rio Ave, a Portuguese top division side, on Saturday 19 July (kick-off 6pm).
The full fixture list is given below, which still sees the first glimpse of the squad at Ilkeston Town & just the one fixture against Premier League West Brom, although the kick off time is yet to be agreed.
