Port Vale vs. Nottingham Forest

Vale Park

Next Up - Port Vale

Forest travel to Vale Park still in search of their first win of the season. It's been a happy hunting ground for the Reds in recent years and was the catalyst for the 'Charlie and Frank' revolution that almost catapulted us to promotion two seasons ago.

Last seasons encounter at Vale Park ended in a 1-1 draw and saw Vale player Husbands sent off. This resulted in a touchline skirmish, that saw the Forest bench and Vale supporters in heated exchanges. Forest need a win badly to keep the pressure off manager Colin Calderwood. The Reds sit in 20th position in the League, having only amassed 3 points so far. Vale are in 14th with 5 points.

The good news for Reds fans, is the expected place in the squad for new signing Chris Cohen, who is yet to make his full Forest debut since signing from Yeovil in the summer. It will be interesting to see whether Calderwood plays him from the start, or gives him a place on the bench.

Vale will have on show one David McGoldrick, rumoured to be a Forest target all summer until signing on loan for the Valiants. It's odds on that he'll score, let's just hope we come out on top.

Vital Quotes:

Port Vale Team News:

Vale report no injury worries ahead of the game and are expected to name the same squad that drew with Walsall last weekend.

Player to watch: David McGoldrick

The former Notts County trainee found the net 6 times in 12 appearances for Bournemouth last year when on loan to them from Southampton. The supposed Forest target will love nothing more than to put one over his former suitors and pile the pressure on us.

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Grant Holt is back in contention after his suspenson, but may have to settle for a place on the bench now that Tyson is fit again. Cohen will at least make the squad, but will make his debut at some stage.

Player to watch: Chris Cohen

The former Yeovil midfielder came to Forest with a reputation as the best playmaker in the division and is hotly tipped for a great future in the game. The West Ham academy graduate doesn't score many, but is instrumental in setting everything up.

Match Facts & Stats

The two sides have met 46 times in the league. Forest have won 23, lost 13 and drawn 10.

Next Fixtures:

Forest v Leicester City. Tuesday, September 18. 7.45pm. Carling Cup.

Dunna worry too much about us scoring! We're probably going to leave our only goalscorer this season on the bench!
