This fixture was postponed shortly after publishing.
Nottingham Forest travel to troubled Middlesbrough on Boxing Day (weather permitting), hoping to continue the recent good run that has seen them lose only one of their last 6 games. Forest currently sit in 8th place in the Championship table on 30 points and will need a good result, not only to keep them in contention with the Playoff spots, but also in readiness for the crunch game at home to the Sheep on the 29th.
In contrast to the fine form of the Reds', Boro are struggling and sit just one place above the relegation zone on goal difference on 21 points. Tony Mowbray is already the 2nd managerial appointment at The Riverside this season, after they parted company with Gordan Strachan in October.
Despite their lowly position in the table, they have enough strength in the side to hurt any team in the division if they ever sort themselves out. With players such as Wheater, Bailey, Lita and Boyd in their ranks, they shouldn't be taken for granted and are much more formidable outfit than their league position suggests.
Nicky Bailey could return to the squad, after the former Charlton man missed the 2-1 defeat at Doncaster with a groin problem. Other than that, Mowbray has a full squad to pick from.
The Argentinian midfielder always seems to play well against us and will have to be watched.
Forest have no new injury concerns ahead of the game. Adebola will be back in contention, after missing the 1-0 win over Palace with a groin strain.
The young Arsenal starlet, could be in line to play his first full game in a Forest shirt, since joining on loan last month.
In 63 league meetings between the teams, Forest have won 20, drawn 26 and lost 17. Earlier this season we won 1-0 at the City Ground and in the 2 league games last season we won 1-0 at home and drew 1-1 in the away return.
Despite what the table and form guide says, I'm going for a 1-1 draw.
It's the big one! 29/12/2010. KO: 7.45pm
