Hartlepool star expecting tough task

The former Sheffield Wednesday man will captain Hartlepool in the absence of Michael Barron for the League One fixture and said: "It is going to be a tough test.

"They have a great stadium, they'll have a big crowd and Forest have a good team.

"Going to be Forest is a very hard game, but we've played very well away from home this season and there is no reason why we can't go there and get a result."
