Forest will head to Berkshire this weekend to face Reading as they continue their search for an away win & their first three point of the season.
Former Forest target Matt Mills hopes to be back in contention for this game after twisting his ankle against Scunthorpe on the opening day on the season & Jay Tabb could also return after suffering a similar problem. Shane Long is also a doubt with a hip injury. Chris Armstrong will miss out only having just got back to full training as has Ivar Ingimarsson.
16 goals last term & a further 9 assists from 37 games made him Readings star player & he's continued in the same form this season having already scored on the opening day & also created their goal against Portsmouth to earn the Royals a point. At just 21 years of age, this lad could have a great career in the game.
Forest have no new injury worries for this fixture with only long term injury victim David McGoldrick missing out with a dislocated shoulder. Chris Gunter though start his suspension after the stamping incident against Leeds.
He's yet to get off the mark this season but having hit the post in both league games he's getting closer each game, as always with Robbie, you know it's only a matter of time.
These two teams have met 26 times in league competition with Forest leading the way having won 12 of those, Reading 8 & 6 draws. Forest also lead the way on goals scored here with 40 goals in those 26 games compared to Reading 30.
Lee Probert of Wiltshire will take control of this game. It's been a mixed bag with Mr Probert for Forest with him having taken charge of 3 Forest games last season of which we won 1, drew 1 & lost one in which he gave out 18 yellow cards (8 to Forest & 10 to the opposition) but no red. He was also the Referee for the FA Cup tie that saw Forest beat Manchester City 3 - 0.
He will be assisted by David Richards of West Yorkshire & Paul Thompson of Derbyshire
Graham Horwood of Bedfordshire will be the 4th official.
There are rarely many goals in this fixture & a single goal victory seems to be the most common score line, with that in mind (& a healthy dollop of prayer) I'm going for a 0 - 1 Forest away win.
