Sheffield Wednesday vs. Nottingham Forest

Hillsborough

Owls v Forest: Preview

Forest travel to Hillsborough on Tuesday night for a reunion with former player Brian Laws and in search of their first away points of the season.

The only way is up for Calderwood and the lads, as we sit smack bottom of the table. It may well be early days in the season, but the first signs of frustration are already being voiced by supporters unhappy with the current league standing. Failure to get some sort of a result against the Owls, will see the pressure mounting on CC ahead of the home game with Palace on Saturday.

Wednesday are in fine form at the moment and sit nicely placed in 9th, just outside the play offs on goal difference. They will go into the game full of confidence, following a decent 2-1 away win against Charlton at the weekend.

Whilst we can boast the worst goal difference in the division with -8, the Owls are leaking a few themselves, with a GD of -3. They were battered 6-0 at Reading a couple of weeks ago, but have since bounced back well. Brian Laws was struggling to win the fans over last season, but they will have few complaints so far this campaign.

For the Reds' to get anything from this game, they need to tighten up at the back. With new loan signing Joel Lynch expected to replace the suspended Morgan, we will at least have a fresher look at the back.

Vital Quotes:

Sheffield Wednesday Team News:

Brian Laws faces an anxious wait over the fitness of Wade Small, Steve Watson and Jermaine Johnson.

Player to watch: Marcus Tudgay

The former Sheep fiddler is in fine form this season, bagging 4 goals in his 7 games.

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Earnshaw will be missing with a calf strain, so it looks like Cole and Tyson up front again. Davies could find himself in the squad, after coming on as a second half sub at the weekend.

Player to watch: Lee Martin

Looks our biggest threat with Earnshaw out of the side. He's capable of turning a game and our most creative player, we're going to be relying on him to get us going and hopefully make us tick.

Match Facts & Stats

The Owls just about hold the bragging rights in terms of League wins. They have 47, to our 45. 22 games have ended all square.

Ref Watch:

Oh, no! It's Andy D'Urso. 'Nuff said.

Match Prediction:

Hoping against hope for a 1-1 draw.

Next Fixtures:

October 4, 2008. KO. 3pm. Crystal Palace. (h).
