3 PM

Next Up Carlisle

Forest welcome League 1 new boys and fellow promotion hopefuls Carlisle United to The City Ground on Saturday. The Reds' will be looking to avenge the 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Oldham on Tuesday, with an improved performance against last years League 2 Champions. It is nearly 30 years since the sides last met at The City Ground in the old Div 2, when The Reds' ran out 5-1 victors. Later in the season the sides drew 1-1 at Brunton Park.

Vital Quotes:

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Kris Commons is not expected to make the squad as he is still recovering from an ankle injury. Scott Dobie is likely to be added as he looks to gain more match fitness after his long lay off.

Forest from: Smith, Gary Holt, Thompson, Morgan, Breckin, Bennett, Southall, Clingan, Harris, Dobie, Perch, Lester, Agogo, Grant Holt, Padula, Pedersen.

Player to watch: Grant Holt

Will look to add to his 5 goals already this season. The big question is who will partner him up front?

Carlisle United Team News:

Carlisle will be looking for their first away win of the season as they continue their fine start. They currently occupy 5th spot in the table and will arrive in buoyant mood. Chris Billy and Neale McDermott could be added to the side as they both return from injuries.

Carlisle from: Westwood, Raven, Murphy, Livesey, Aranalde, Thirlwell, Lumsdon, Gall, Murray, Hawley, Holmes, Williams, Arnison, McDermott, Billy.

Player to watch: Karl Hawley

Hawley scored 22 goals in their quest for promotion last year.
