Forest take a break in good spirits

The Reds' 1-0 win at Peterborough provided the perfect tonic for Sean O'Driscoll's side after their excellent start to the season had looked as though it was coming undone.

"Not a lot has gone for us in recent games, so this is a confidence-boosting win.," said the manager afterwards.

While a quintet of players, including Simon Cox and Adlene Guedioura, head off on international duty there is a chance for the club's under-21's to impress when they host Leicester City at the City Ground on Tuesday.

On the loan front, David McGoldrick has become something of a fans' favourite at Coventry City and was the Sky Blues' star turn at the weekend, a well-worked strike proving to be the winner against AFC Bournemouth.
