Nottingham Forest vs. Millwall

City Ground

Reds' v Millwall

Millwall have today announced Willie Donachie as their new manager after sacking the hapless Nigel Spackman. He took over as caretaker manager 10 games ago and has taken the Lions out of the relegation zone, but only just as they sit in 20th position in the League. The boys from Saarf Landon have found life difficult in League 1, but recent form indicates that they are capable of moving up the table.

Forest are unbeaten in 8 games and will look to continue this at home on Saturday. Sitting proudly on top of the pile and a full 6 points clear, The Reds' will have to guard against complacency. The team may have been distracted this week with the antics of the on off Grant Holt saga, so any slip ups will surely be punished by the Lions.

Vital Quotes:

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Colin Calderwood has a fully fit squad to choose from and will no doubt have a selection poser ahead of the game regarding his strikers. Nathan Tyson has declared himself fully fit and stated his desire to start. Calderwood may however decide to stick with an unchanged side.

Player to watch: Kris Commons

Commons is on fire at the moment, having scored 6 goals in 9 games, despite missing 10 games through injury. He seems to be relishing a free roll behind the front two.

Millwall Team News:

Millwall will be without suspended frontman Chris Zebrowski, but other than that, Donachie has no injury worries.

Player to watch: Poul Hubertz

This hulk of a man stands at 6ft 4, so Morgan and Cullip are in for a busy afternoon. In 9 appearances he has scored 4 times. The Dane was signed in 2005 from Aalborg.

Match Facts & Stats

The two sides have previously met 50 times and The Lions just have the edge, having won on 19 occasions to Forests' 15. The other 15 were draws.

Match Prediction:

On paper this should be a win for The Reds', but it has been a disruptive week at the City Ground. If Calderwood has them up for it, you would have to go for a Forest win.

We need to win our home games and give Milwall a metaphorical kick when they are down at the same time.
