Forest will be looking to get back to winning ways against The Railway men, after suffering their first away League defeat of the season in midweek against Bournemouth.
Some of the doom and gloom merchants are already writing Forest off after a less than impressive 7 days. The mighty Reds' were held to a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup, by Conference South side Salisbury City on Sunday. This was followed on Tuesday night by a 2-0 defeat at struggling Bournemouth. Fans should remember that Calderwood and his charges are still 5 points clear at the top of League 1.
Crewe had a bright start to the season and were amongst the early season pacesetters, but a bad run of results sees them currently in 11th. A three match unbeaten run came to an end after a 1-0 away defeat to Oldham in midweek.
The two sides have met previously on 13 occasions and The Reds' have the upper hand with eight victories, two defeats and three ending in stalemate.
If you haven't already got a ticket for this popular away fixture, then forget it, as the clubs entire allocation has sold out.
On loan Blackburn defender Andy Taylor could return after a hamstring injury, otherwise it will be the same squad that lost to The Latics.
Crewe from: Tomlinson, Otsemobor, Baudet, Cox, Jones, Lowe, Roberts, Rix, Vaughan, Varney, Jack, Williams, Bignot, O'Donnell.
Crewe are a decent side defensively, boasting the likes of Julien Baudet and young Billy Jones. The biggest threat though could come from Luke Varney who has scored 18 goals in 84 appearances for the club.
Reds' fans will be hoping for the speedy return of Nathan Tyson, who went off at the Fitness First Stadium with an eye injury. Smith and Agogo will undergo fitness tests prior to the game. Scott Dobie is also back in contention for a place.
Forest from: Smith, Pedersen, Morgan, Cullip, Breckin, Curtis, Southall, Perch, Clingan, Gary Holt, Dobie, Grant Holt, Commons, Tyson, Harris, Gamble, Lester.
This weeks one to watch is Neil Harris. After 39 appearances in a Red shirt, the striker is on fire this season having scored 1 goal. The former Millwall man will look to add to his tally at Gresty Road. The blue eyed boy signed from the Lions in 2004 for a nominal fee.
