Nottingham Forest vs. Leyton Orient

City Ground

Leyton Orient Preview

After Forests' midweek success in the FA Cup, it's back to League action as The Reds' welcome Leyton Orient to the City Ground.

The O's have found life difficult in League 1 since gaining promotion. They currently share botton place in the division with Cheltenham and Brentford. (all on 18 pts,) whereas Forest are still top. 5 points clear of the chasing pack. After beating Huddersfield at the weekend 1-0, they were dumped out of the FA Cup on Tuesday, losing 1-2 to League 2 Torquay United.

Forest will be looking to continue where they left off last weekend after putting in their best performance of the season against Crewe, running out 4-1 winners. Hitman Nathan Tyson will be hoping to carry on with his fine form that sees him hot on the heels of the clubs leading scorer Grant Holt. Manager Colin Calderwood could have a selection poser up front with the return to fitness of Junior Agogo.

You lot should be fine as long as you don't take them for granted like you did with Bournemouth. Only a fool makes the same mistake twice.
