It’s not the best time to be visiting the City Ground.
Forest have won the last four matches under Billy Davies, setting about a late charge for the play-offs.
As Wolves were beating Millwall on Tuesday, they were grinding out a narrow victory over 9-man Ipswich to move within two points of the top six.
It looks like an interesting tussle for the play-off spots, with Bolton and Brighton also hitting their stride at the right time. Leeds and Boro aren’t out of it either.
Looking at the table (lots of draws), you sense Forest are an efficient rather than spectacular side, but nonetheless this will be a stern test.
The Trees won at Molineux earlier in the season courtesy of a Guedioura bullet. Hopefully no repeat of those shenanigans tomorrow.
Unlike Millwall though, they’ve got the attacking players (Cox, Sharp, Majewski, etc) to hurt us.
The team selection at Millwall raised more than a few eyebrows, but was quickly overshadowed by the sweet and unfamiliar sensation of victory.
The question now is, does Dean Saunders stick or twist? I’d be inclined to restore Sigurdarson to the lineup:
But again, so many players have been tried in so many different formations, it fogs the mind.
I don’t even know what I think our best lineup is at the moment, although I’d be loathe to make wholesale changes to a team that delivered a first victory in 14 matches.
In an unprecedented wave of optimism, 44 people thought Wolves would win at Millwall.
10 of those got the 2-0 scoreline spot on, so well done to Norway Wolf, dave h, Morph, (Formerly) Sir Fred Paisley, Andrew in Atlanta, Slider, johnok, Mick the Wolf, sevlow and robc306. It’s doubles all round and a single for everyone else.
Logically, Forest should win this.
But Wolves are coming in on the back of two decent results, so I’ll back us to take a point.
Up The Wolves.
