Nottingham Forest faced Preston North End in the FA Cup 4th Round on Friday night looking to continue their unbeaten run against Simon Grayson's League One side.

Prior to the game Forest's on-loan defender Jack Hobbs was recalled by his parent club Hull City, to cover for the injured James Chester, putting his future at the City Ground in doubt. The Reds, meanwhile, were reported to have sealed a deal for Algerian striker Rafik Djebbour

Preston, meanwhile, were without experienced striker Kevin Davies after his red card against Coventry City last weekend but were resolute against their Championship opponents and came into the game more as it progressed.

Forest's reduced price ticket offer for the game was a huge success with a City Ground of 26,465 in attendance.
