Reds' v Wendies: Preview

It's back to the real business of Championship football tonight, as Forest welcome the Wendies of Sheffield to the City Ground.

The Wendies are of course led by former Red and City Ground favourite Brian Laws, who recently signed an extension to his contract to secure his future at the South Yorkshire club. Laws has brought about some much needed stability at the Owls and is highly thought of by the majority of supporters. Talks of a takeover have been ongoing for some time, but that is thought to be nearing a conclusion with investment expected from the US.

Victory for the Reds' tonight, would take our current run to 6 unbeaten and take us up a place in the division to 17th. Billy Davies is expected at the game, having missed the FA Cup tie with the Sheep due to his Son being in hospital. The Wendies sit a respectable 12th in the table, on 38 points, just 7 away from the playoffs.

Vital Quotes:

Nottingham Forest Team News:

The Reds' will definitely be missing Anderson, who broke his arm in the FA Cup game at the Sheepdip. Nothing has been said about Cohen, who also picked up a nasty knock at the end of the game, so it's fingers crossed for him. Wes Morgan could be in contention for a recall, after he missed the last game due to a family illness. The hapless Joel Lynch is rumoured to have a back problem. Hopefully it gives him some grief today.

Player to watch: Robert Earnshaw

Top scorer on 11, he's in a rich vein of form at present and is starting to look like the player we all know he is.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News:

Leon Clarke is expected to get his first game since damaging a hamstring back in December. New loan signing Lewis Buxton from Stoke, could make his debut for the Owls, having just signed a permanent deal this week.

Player to watch: Marcus Tudgay

The former Ram has bagged 9 goals for the Owls this season and will fancy his chances against our fragile defence.

Match Facts & Stats

Billy is back at the helm, but looking like Cohen will be absent!

I'd be surprised if Cohen played. If he does though, we win 2-1. Narrow victory for the Reds and another battling display. Onwards and upwards we go.
