Forest travel to the County Ground on Saturday to take on a new look Swindon Town. It's been a difficult few weeks for the Wiltshire club, but now everything seems to be sorted out as regards the successful takeover and the appointment of new manager Maurice Malpas.
They will be out to impress their new employers and hope to start with a result over an inform Forest, who sit 2nd in the table, just 3 points behind leaders Swansea. Despite the off field problems at the County Ground, they have managed to stay in a mid table position of 12th, 9 points off the playoffs.
The other good news for the Robins, is the imposed transfer embargo was lifted on Thursday. It remains to be seen if they can do any business in terms of personnel before the game. New boss Malpas has said he hopes to reach the playoffs this season and hopes to start with a result over the Reds.
Swindon hope to recall midfielder Lee Peacock for the game as well as captain Hasney Aljofree.
McGovern started his career at Celtic, without making the breakthrough and was signed from M K Dons in the summer by former manager Paul Sturrock. He's scored twice for the Robins and is capable of scoring from anywhere. Even a corner!
Nathan Tyson could force his way into CC's plans, after completing 45 mins in a behind closed doors friendly in midweek. Defender Julian Bennett will also have a good case for a recall, after finding the net twice in the same game.
It appears our wonder kid is finding the consistency his game has been lacking and has been instrumental in recent matches. He has just picked up the award for League 1 player of the month and will hope to continue his good run of form.
History between the teams goes back to 1926, but we have only played each other 14 times in the League. Forest have won 8, drawn 5 and lost 1. Last time out was in the Robins relegation season when we walloped them 7-1 at the City Ground. The away game, saw the Robins run out 2-1 winners.
2-0 to Forest. Forever the optimist.
