The City Ground
Forest will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend with the visit of Sheffield Wednesday. It's sure to be a tough test with Wednesday showing a massive improvement in form since the arrival of Alan Irvine winning four of their 5 games since he's been in charge. Forest though are no slouches at home having won all of their previous six games. This one could be a cracker!
Forest are at full strength now with no new injury concerns but it remains to be seen whether James Perch will retain the left back position of if Chris Cohen will move back into a full back slot.
The Forest front man now averages a goal for every start this season (although there have been a further 8 substitute appearances) & will be looking to continue his current scoring run with 4 in his last 5 games.
Jermaine Johnson suffered a hamstring injury at Blackpool and will be out for around six weeks, Tommy Miller is continuing his rehabilitation from a hamstring injury, Richard O'Donnell is expected to be out for a further two weeks with an ankle injury.
Is as usual the main man to watch, he's notched up 8 goals already this season. with a further 7 assists.
These two team have met 117 times in League Competition over the years & it's been very close with Wednesday winning 48 & Forest 46 of those games (23 draws) Forest have a slight lead in goals scored though but only of a single goal having scored 161 times in this fixture with Wednesday scoring 160.
Sheffield Wednesday have commited more fouls than any other club in this league (370) yet are the only Championship club yet to have a player sent off this season.
Trevor Kettle of Rutland will take charge of this fixture Neil Hair of Cambridgeshire and Dean Mohareb of Cheshire will be his assistants. Fourth Official Sial Massey of the W. Midlands
Forest's home form is great at the moment & although the Owls have picked up their form lately I'm going for a well contested 2 - 1 home win.
