The phrase 'must win game' crops up on a weekly basis at the moment, this time as Forest visit Bradford City. Despite sitting joint second in the League and three points behind leaders Scunthorpe and with a game in hand, these are jittery times for the Reds.
Forest are struggling to find some consistency and are also lacking in goals, having only scored once in the last four outings. Having missed the chance to leapfrog Oldham and Bristol City in mid week, The Reds can't afford any slip ups on Saturday. On the up side Lewis McGugan was one of the few shining lights in the Carlisle game and should be in with more than a shout in keeping his place.
The two sides met in the opening game of the season at the City Ground and saw Forest just finish 1-0 winners, even though that freak of a man Donovan Ricketts saved a Neill Harris penalty.
City have been busy recruiting this week and will be boosted by the arrivals on loan of strikers Billy Paynter and Bruce Dyer as well as defender Kelly Youga.
The Reds will be happy in the knowledge that Dean Windass has departed for pastures new (Hull)and will no longer be terrorising them.
Bantams boss and ex Ram Colin Todd, will be pinning his hopes on new boy Billy Paynter to get the goals in the absence of Windass. The Southend striker is on loan at Valley Parade and will hope to kicks tart his career after being limited to only five starts this season for his former club.
Colin Calderwood maybe able to call on Kris Commons again after recovering from his hamstring problems. The manager is expected to hand debuts to new signings Luke Chambers and David Prutton, who joined just before the transfer deadline.
This will be a much needed and welcome return for the prodigal son. Set to become a fans favourite once again, he will add some steel and more importantly creativity in the Forest midfield.
The two sides have met 39 times in the League. Forest have had much the better of things over the years with 19 wins, 11 draws and 9 defeats.
