Forest v Wednesday Match Preview:

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.

I would have thought so mansfieldowl yes, we have been selling to Forest fans there lately when tickets are returned, cant see Wednesday doing that though

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!
