Another in our sequence of "winnable" games, Forest are in a bit of disarray and have middling current form (3wins, 3 losses) I'm not even sure who the manager is since Montanier was sacked. They did sign McCormack on TD day though and have lost there last two, they wont want to lose a third at home. Not feeling overly confident with this as we are due a slip.

1-1

I'm not confident either, Forest have won their last 3 home games.

However, I have a sneaky suspicion we may turn it on a bit - so I'm going with 2-0. Which is against what I say in my opening sentence!

As under performing as the last three games have been the results have gone in our favour. All of a sudden things will click together and someone will get a hiding but don,t think it will be Forest somehow, i think it will be a close one and a 1-1 outcome.

Its a game we should win especially on current form..but it has the potential to be the proverbial banana skin ....we need the 3 points to keep the pressure on ..

What Sheridan says ^^^^^^^

'Teams in disarray' have a habit of hurting us though, so it's a dodgy one.

A bit more of this (at 2-0 up) will do for me.
Barcelona???? Pah!
PSG?? Pah!!

Just read that Fox is injured so looks like he is out tomorrow.

Looks like Reach at left back unless Carlos has a blip and picks Pudil.

He is he's tweeted it himself.

I hate us playing Reach at LB but I expect it tomorrow and possibly ff back in the starting line up.

Read earlier that in 3 games we've create ONE chance for Rhodes. Granted he's taken it but didn't realise it was that bad. We have to be more creative.

Barry Bannan is causing loads of upsets with the fans,he as admitted himself he as been playing with injury,but because he must be Carlos favourites he will not drop him to give another midfielder a chance,pressure is going to get worse on the manager unless performances do not improve,it might be o.k grinding results out,but when your paying over 30-40 the fans will stop going to watch the team soon

Pressure will only get worse when they start losing games and theres no sign of that happening.

Both teams are 9th in the home and away tables for their respective fixture.

So a draw looks a reasonable bet, but Forest are a very dodgy side and can turn you over or taking a beating.

I'll go down the middle and say draw.

We are well due a loss with how they look at the moment but....

hold on a minute, has carlos changed how we play to win / grind out results like Middlesborough did and hull last season ?

Not pretty, not as exciting, not how i want us to play but we have enough about us to score goals, keep it tight at the back and dont conceed many and it is working at the moment !

If this is what it takes to get promoted so be it !

When you look at the stats we are one of the most inform teams only huddersfield bettering us i think ?

Like it or not we are winning and doing well !

My pre - assessment for the Wednesday team at the City Ground without the benefit
of an update of the player's fitness levels.
Goalkeeper.Westwood.

Defence.
Right back.Palmer.(If Lees plays , then i would put Sasso right - back and Palmer to the bench.)
Left back. Reach.( Fox injured.Pudil out of form).

Central defence.
Lees if fit or Sasso.( If Lees starts then i would put Sasso right-back.)
Loovens.

Midfield.
McManaman.Pace and trickery to provide proper service for Rhodes and Winnall.
Hutchinson.Again if fit in front of back-four.( if not fit then Davy Jones.)
Bannan.
Forestrieri.Wide-left.Best position where he's most effective.

Strikers.Rhodes and Winnall.Need to be given a run together,
With proper service from McManaman and Forestrieri and Reach
these two lads will benefit.

So my starting X1 will be the following . . . .

Westwood.

Palmer.(providing Lees does not start and Sasso remains CD.)
Sasso / Lees.
Loovens.
Reach.

McManaman.
Hutchinson.
Bannan.
Forestrieri.

Rhodes.
Winnall.

Subs.(depending on fitness .)

Wildsmith.
Palmer.( If Lees plays then i'd play Sasso right-back and Palmer to the bench.)
Lees./ Hunt .(If Lees does not make the bench then Hunt sub).
Wallace.
Abdi.
Fletcher.
Hooper.

Now a word on Forest. . . .
They have a top quality strike force in
Ross McCormack - - - Zach Clough - - - and Britt Assombalonga
so Wednesday's rearguard will have to be on their game.

So its 4 - 4 - 2 for me and its time for the lads to get at em.

Reckon it will be another tough match ,
but the team ive picked is an attacking line up.
Hoping this team gets the three pts . . . so a 2 - 1 win, a Rhodes brace
will extend our nice lttle unbeaten run and consolidate our play - off position.

I'd like to see both Buckley and McManaman let loose at some stage.
We're not creating a great lot of chances, and these two have exactly that quality.
I'm not sure of Buckley's fitness at the minute, but when he is fit, he should be given a proper go at it.
Time for a Forestieri holiday I reckon. We won't miss him a great deal, he's been on holiday for the last 3 or 4 games anyway.
I'd love it, love it, love it, if Abdi came out of his shell and showed us what he is really capable of.
On reputation, he's possibly the best player at Hillsborough. It's about time he stepped forward.

Decent bench.
I suppose we'll do our usual thing and go Hell for leather for the first 15.
Hopefully, we'll score in that time.
What we do after that (should we take the lead) is the big question.
I say keep going and dominate the whole 95. If history repeats itself, we'll hold back and live life on the edge.
We're not too good at living on the edge.

We've a good, experienced bench, so we have the bodies and the nous to see it through. We have to play it the right way.
Hopefully, we will play the right way, and entertain along the way.
