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!

At 14.00 on Thursday. Less than 100 seats left in the Trent End, Only six left in the Bridgeford, A handful in the middle of the leaky old Main Stand, but seats still available in the BC. Should be a rousing atmosphere, hopefully to welcome the reds back to winning ways.

Pleeeeaaase Billy, don't play Perch at left back, put Cohen in there. I wouldn't want to be in the Acq Panel's shoes (excluding BD and ND of course) if we lose this one!
