Amidst all the turmoil that surrounds all things Forest at the moment, we shouldn't forget that there's a game of football on Saturday. The Reds' welcome the Scab lovers of Barnsley to the City Ground, in what will be a vital game for both teams.
Forest of course are propping up the rest of the division, with only two wins all season. The Tykes, are doing much better of late and sit in the relative comfort of 17th place on 24 points. They had a decent result on Tuesday, beating high flying Burnley 3-2 at home.
Calderwood of course needs the win, just to ease the flak that will surely come his way if he fails again. Defeat would almost certainly see his demise and bring an end to two and a half years in charge. These are difficult times for the club and the atmosphere in the ground will be a hostile one, if the players fail to perform. The onus is on them to keep their boss in a job, but it's anyone's guess whether they'll rise to the challenge. With us being six points adrift of safety, calling this a must win game doesn't even come close.
Forest will be able to recall Thornhill and Breckin, but Cohen will miss out again due to an ankle injury. Brendan Moloney will be in the squad, after having his loan spell at Rushden and Diamonds cut short.
There's not much to choose from lately, but we will be pinning all our hopes on Little Earn. 5 goals so far sees him as the top scorer at the club. Hopefully he'll find the net again tomorrow.
Martin Devaney, Iain Hume and Diego Leon will miss this one, but a debut awaits new signing Jamie Cureton, who's just come in on loan from Norwich.
The former Ram and Ipswich man has bagged 5 goals for the Tykes this season and opened the scoring on Tueday against Burnley.
It's honours even between the two sides. In 62 meetings, Forest have won 23, lost 23 and drawn 16. Last time out it was a 2-0 defeat for us at the City Ground.
Coventry (a). 6/12/08. KO 3pm.
