9 Points For Forest To Play For (21/4/17)

9 Points For Forest To Play For (21/4/17)

Nottingham Forest have only 9 points left to play for in this year's battle in the Championship.

With the games dwindling down now at the real business end of the campaign as Nottingham Forest find themselves heading towards the end of May, sitting in 21st place in the Championship table - with a now one point gap to Blackburn Rovers in the top relegation spot - it means the double defeat to Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City has been very costly.

With three games remaining though, each of them will be a tough test but with Queens Park Rangers having the worst form at the moment, at this stage an additional three points only might not be enough.

It has to be hoped the loss to Blackburn wasn't the final twist in the battle against relegation this year, as victory in that match would certainly have put a more favourable perspective on the table.
