Watford will pose a serious threat to the unbeaten home run that has taken the Reds' into the Playoff spots, when they come to the City Ground today. Although they have suffered something of a dip in form in recent weeks, manager Malky Mackay has put together a decent attacking side that have promotion aspirations of their own and currently lie in 7th place in the Championship, 3 points off the Playoffs.
Forest though will have good reason to be confident, going into the game on the back of a 2-1 midweek win at Coventry. We've won 4 out of the last 5 games and are the form team in the division.
The injury to midfielder Guy Moussi has been a blow, but captain Paul McKenna will probably step in for him and he now has a chance to get a run of games behind him and hopefully regain the form that made him such an influential part of the team at the beginning of last season. The game should be a home debut for new loan signing Paul Konchesky, who joined from Liverpool on deadline day. He made a good start to his Forest career during the away win at Coventry on Tuesday night.
This has the hallmarks of a cracking game, with Watford being one of the more attacking sides in the division. They will come and have a go, unlike many teams who visit the City Ground and will be looking to hang on to the mantle as the Championship's highest scorers.
Guy Moussi and new signing Robbie Findley will be missing with thigh injuries. Captain Paul McKenna is expected to takeover from the Frenchman. There is a doubt over Nathan Tyson, who is said to be struggling with a back strain.
It may only be until the end of the season, but Forest fans get the chance to see an actual left back play. Sarcasm aside, it will be great to see the tough tackling defender in action.
Don Cowie is likely to be missing due to a thigh injury, whilst striker Marvin Sordell is doubtful with a damaged toe. Midfielder Ross Jenkins will have a fitnes test to check out a dodgy hamstring.
Graham is the leading scorer in the division with 18 goals to his name this season. The former Carlisle striker will be a real handful for both Morgan and Chambers in the Reds' defence.
In 33 league meetings, we have won 11, draw 12 and lost 10. We managed a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road back in Novemebr, thanks to a 20th min equaliser from Lewis McGugan.
1-0 home win.
