Forest v Hatters Preview

Nottingham Forest
vs.
Luton Town

City Ground

April 19, 2008.

3pm.

You have to feel for Luton. This time last year they were playing Championship football and this time next year, they'll be playing it in the depths of League 2 following their relegation last week. Former Forest caretaker boss Mick Harford, doesn't know if he'll have a job next season and has been forced to see his squad decimated after the club went into administration.

Forest had their playoff place booked this week and will look to go into them with a decent run of form behind them. With only three games left, they need to do that now and can't afford to have any sentiments for Luton and their predicament. Hatters boss Harford has intimated that he may give the youth a chance in an attempt to end 9 games without an away win.

Famous people from Luton:

Apart from making hats and cars and being famous for it's airport, Luton can infact lay claim to a few celeb types to call their own. Star of the Carry On films Kenneth Williams hails from their, as did Hollywood heartthrob Gary Cooper. This country's most infamous prisoner Charles Bronson comes from there and singer Paul Young, often lays his hat there as well. Possibly their biggest claim to fame nowadays, is that the world's first Domino's pizza was made there.

Vital Quotes:

Nottingham Forest Team News:

The Reds will once again be without striker Junior Agogo with a calf strain. The good news is that we should be able to be recall Kelvin Wilson back to the heart of defence after his injury.

Player to watch: Nathan Tyson

Looks to be back to his best and we're going to need it if we're ever going to get out of L1. He got his 11th goal of the season last weekend at Tranmere.

Luton Town Team News:

Ryan Charles and Paul Furlong are ruled out with knee problems.

George Beavan and Richard Jackson are out, but Richard Langley may get a recall after recovering from a broken leg.

Player to watch: Paul Furlong

The much travelled striker has a wealth of experience and has scored 12 times for the Hatters this term. The former QPR frontman is a veteran now at 40, but he'll have to be watched.

Looking for a convincing display in this one. Nothing should be taken for granted, but it should be a straightforward 3 pts.
