Forest hit the road again on Tuesday, in search of their first away points of the season. The visit to Preston's Deepdale will be a tough place to get them, with the Lancashire outfit having a good start to the season so far.
The Lilywhites currently lie third in the table and manager Alan Irvine has them performing well since taking over in November. Forest on the other hand sit just one place above the drop zone and failure to get a result at Preston could see them dragged into the relegation spots if results elsewhere go against us.
The Forest faithful shouldn't hold their breathe for a glimpse of former loan striker Brett Ormerod. He's not been able to force his way back into the side since returning from us in the summer. Despite doing so well for us and helping us to promotion, he's not been able to force his way into the managers plans.
Preston have no fresh injuries to report ahead of the game.
Forest fans will remember Jones from his Crewe days. The wily midfielder has caused us many problems whenever we've come up against him in the past. Hopefully we can keep him quiet and get some joy ourselves.
Andy Cole could get his first start for the Reds', as he nears 100% fitness. McGugan and Bennett though, will definitely miss the game.
Little Earn has fast won over the Forest fans and has bagged five goals since signing from the Sheep in the summer. He looks lively and will always pose a threat
The two sides have a long and illustrious past and first met way back in 1892. The game ended in a 2-0 win for the Reds'. There have been a total of 80 meetings in the League and the Lilywhites just have the edge, with 35 wins, to our 24. 21 games have been drawn.
I can't see us getting much from this one, but ever the optimist...I'll go for a 1-1 draw.
Charlton (h). September 20. KO 3pm.
