Home Run Is On The Line: Forest v QPR

Forest will face one of their sternest tests yet in keeping the 27 unbeaten home run in the league intact, when they welcome table toppers QPR to the City Ground on Saturday.

The 'R's' remain unbeaten so far this season, with manager Neil Warnock having assembled a side that appears to be the real deal this time round. Whether you love Warnock or loathe him, he's put together a side brimming with Championship quality, which boasts the likes of Gorkss, Taarabt, Mackie and Hulse, as well as former Forest loanee Shaun Derry.

The touchline will be an interesting place tomorrow and definitely worth keeping an eye on, with two of the most animated managers in the game battling it out. Both teams will rightly go into the game full of confidence, although Rangers have looked a little shaky of late with only 1 win in their last 6 games. Keep it to yourself, but QPR have never won a game at the City Ground......ever.

Vital Quotes:

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Kelvin Wilson looks to be the only doubt for this one, with captain Paul McKenna available again after missing out on Tuesday due to a family problem.

Player to watch: Robert Earnshaw

He's back to full fitness and he's due a goal.

Queens Park Rangers Team News:

Matt Connolly is suspended after being sent off in the 1-1 draw at Portsmouth on Tuesday night.

Player to watch: Adel Taarabt

The former Spud is instrumental in everything the R's do. If we can stop him from playing his natural game, we have a chance of taking something from the game.

Match Facts & Stats

The two teams have met a total of 48 times in the league, in which the reds' have won 20, drawn 15 and lost 13. Last season we thumped them 5-0 at home and earned a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road.

Match Prediction:

I'm going for a blood and guts 2-2 draw.
