Watching Brief As Forest Await Watford

A full Championship programme is scheduled for midweek with eleven matches on Tuesday night and then the televised clash between the Reds and the Hornets two days later.

After the success of their reduced price ticket offer for the FA Cup game against Preston North End on Friday night when over 26,000 attended, Forest members can buy a ticket for Thursday at a discount of £10.

The Hornets, who led Manchester City for long periods in the cup on Saturday afternoon, drew 1-1 with the Reds in the return fixture at Vicarage Road in August, Lewis McGugan scoring against his former club who nonetheless returned to the top of the Championship table after four games.

McGugan has continued to net since then but is now playing under a different manager, Beppe Sannino having replaced Gianfranco Zola at the helm.
