Seagulls Versus The Reds

The game was a second away trip of the week for Billy Davies' men with the manager looking for an improved performance to that at Charlton on Tuesday although he left The Valley pleased with the point earned by Andy Reid's early strike.

To the optimist, Forest's haul of 19 points from their opening 10 games marked the basis for a promotion push although glass half-empty fans could also point to just two wins from seven games.

Davies is in the former camp, telling the official club website: "I have to say, as a manager, having got to five play-offs (with three different clubs), this is the best points return I've had, over the first ten matches."

Brighton also drew their midweek game 1-1 with Keith Andrews netting a late equaliser against Sheffield Wednesday. That left the Seagulls just inside the top-half of the Championship table with 13 points from their first 10 games.

Forest Mad will have more from the game on Saturday evening.
