Unless you live in a cave, you'll know that Forest face the Monkey Hangers of Hartlepool this weekend and they arrive in town promising to 'attack, attack, attack' This will make a refreshing change to the City Ground faithful, as most teams so far this campaign have come to town with the attitude of 'defend, defend, defend.'
As for the other runners and riders in League 1, table toppers Orient have a tough one at home to 6th placed Swansea. Martin Ling and his boys probably have parachutes on by now in readiness for their customary freefall to the bottom of the table, a position they're much more accustomed to. To be honest, I don't think they were too comfortable atop of the pile anyway. They may be safe for another week though as Tranmere in 2nd play the match of the day in the division, as they take on Southend in 3rd away from home.
Down at the bottom and down on their luck Bournemouth are away at Crewe. The Cherries only win so far was away at Doncaster. Almost at the bottom Cheltenham take on a struggling Oldham side who sit just one point above the drop zone. How things have changed for them this season. Millwall, one of the fancied sides before the season started have hit a rut and face a tricky game up at Carlisle who are in fine form at the moment, sitting in 4th.
Oh So Lucky Leeds United have what is a tough game on paper against Yeovil at Elland Road. No doubt they'll get the customary last minute goal to carry on their lucky streak. When their bubble bursts, you'll hear about here first. Sour grapes from their lucky 2-1 win at the City Ground? You betcha!
If results go our way and let's face it, they usually don't, then we could be sitting pretty in 4th spot by Saturday teatime. That's a long shot though and will be dependant on some almighty cock ups for that to be the case. Still, no harm in dreaming, eh?
