Nottingham Forest Versus Reading

The first of two crucially important home games for Nottingham Forest and their manager Dougie Freedman took place on Saturday afternoon when Reading made the trip to the City Ground in the Championship.

Having seen the positive feeling generated by the victory over Derby County disappear with Brentford's last-minute victory at Griffin Park last weekend, Freedman faced renewed speculation about his own future in the run-up to the game.

He responded by promising changes to personnel and, perhaps, to Forest's way of playing having accused his side of being 'naive' in allowing the Bees to win the game with only ten men.

Forest Mad will have reaction to the game over the weekend.
