SPORTSBEAT PREVIEW | Relegation Dogfight For Forest On Deadline Day

SPORTSBEAT PREVIEW | Relegation Dogfight For Forest On Deadline Day

Nottingham Forest face a relegation dogfight this evening, as they welcome the side bottom of the table in Rotherham United in a game which could prove critical to Forest’s survival bid.

The match, which falls on the evening of the transfer window closing, could prove vital for Forest as a win would give the reds some breathing space at the bottom, whilst a defeat coupled with a positive result for Blackburn at Leeds tomorrow – would put Forest in real trouble.

Forest added Aston Villa midfielder Aaron Tshibola on loan yesterday and interim boss Gary Brazil, speaking at yesterday’s press call, said he hoped for more incoming faces to aid his sides fight “We have a list of players that we are interested in. January is such an awkward window to get players out of clubs and we have a big list we are pushing through. I hope in the next 48 hours we have some more players coming in.”

“I haven’t really worked on exit; it is more on getting people in. If there is interest from other clubs and we thought it would be to the benefit of the squad and the player, then we would consider it. In an ideal world our squad has got to be stronger at the end of January than it was at the end of December.”

It looks like Brazil may be in interim charge for longer than anticipated, as yesterday Burton Albion boss and former Forest favourite Nigel Clough, turned down the chance to follow in his father’s footsteps and manage at The City Ground
