30 March 2013
Afternoon all, and thanks to Aussie Mike for his guest post yesterday. Today we face Charlton Athletic in our most important game of the season so far. Victory today could see us move within two points of the playoff. Defeat will probably see us condemned to another season out of the big league. We need to get back to winning ways after our hiccup against Ipswich two weeks ago, and with Huddersfield and Wolves coming up in the next week, today could be the start of another little run.
In the other big game for us today, Forest play Brighton. I`m entirely sure how I want that game to pan out. If Forest win, they start to create a gap between fifth and sixth, but they make our chances of getting sixth greater. However, if Brighton win, then it still leaves two playoff spots for the taking. Wish they could both lose.
Dougie thinks there`s been some benefit to the long break since the Ipswich game. He told the club website: "We have had a break as a squad, given the lads a few days off to recharge their batteries and spend time with their families. We have had a great time off and now we are really looking forward to the remainder of the season."
He also spoke about Kevin Davies` future: "It was a difficult decision regarding Kevin but it was a decision that was made of honesty towards Kevin, he deserves the honesty and respect when we made the decision to give him the time and opportunity to find himself a team for next season. Kevin is a club legend and always will be and it now gives the fans the opportunity to get right behind Kevin and give him the support he deserves.
Leon Cort and Danny Hollands are out; whereas new loanee Mark Gower is available for selection.
No, not a clue.
Hall and Butterfield are both expected to be in squad, as should be Kevin Davies. Let`s hope nothing changes between us and SKD in the final few games. Hero.
Another big game for our centre back extraordinaire. We won`t be firing them in for fun today, so a clean sheet is a must. Our record since Dawson joined the club has been incredible, and I wouldn`t expect any less than the best from him today.
Charlton have only once won at home against us in the last decade. Think this is a rather misleading stat considering we haven`t played at their ground for seven years!
Think we`ll win this one, 1-0. I`m not predicting fireworks, but I`m confident of victory.
Huddersfield at home on Tuesday night. The stuff that Championship dreams are made of.
