Always Nottm Forest never Notts.

Good to remember that little detail.

Mark Warburton has certainly rebuilt the Forest side and they present a footballing challenge in what should be high entertainment.

No doubt there will be chances at both ends but this Wolves side looks good for ALL three points.

Daryl Murphy looking to win the physicality and heading battle with Danny Batth.

While a player to look out for the supremely talented youngster in the Forest ranks the Everton loanee Kieran Dowell.

Wolves team selection for this game should go a long way to revealing Nuno's thinking at this time.

Will Alfred N'Diaye retain his place or will Romain Saiss passing quality be looked on as more important.

Looking forward to a great game.

Both Saiss & N'Daye powerful and more defensive. Might Nuno even entertain playing BOTH for first hour, and leave Neves on bench for a game (having looked a bit jaded in last 2 after brilliant start. Is fatherhood tiring him?!!)

Suspect that WHOLE team will be rested for Bristol Rovers next Tuesday....

Both teams going well and playing attractive football. should be a great game but I take us to win well as we are far better away from home with our style of play, we get more room.

I wish we'd bought Daryl Murphy, he never got a look in at Newcastle but has always been good at this level. I'm hopeful that we will perform away from home. I expect N'Diaye to retain the shirt, I liked the look of him.

I think "The Sultan" Vinaigre has had two very strenuous games and might need a rest if Douglas is fit again. N'Daiye looked good to me and is probably worth keeping in for an away game. Otherwise, stay as we are.

Forest certainly have three live high class talents in the positions behind the striker within their 4-2-3-1 system.

Ben Osborn to the left is getting better and better, last week he scored a high quality goal as he broke into the box on the left side. Smart finish.

Kieran Dowell in the centre position at 19 is rated by many as a future England star, with an eye for the through ball and the skills to execute the passes required.

Ben Brereton at 18 is even more highly rated than Dowell with the world of football seemingly at his feet.
Has everything with his strength, speed and size a good test for Rod Miranda on Forests right.

At youth level Forest have even more super talent, their under 18's could be up there with the best in the country.
Hardly beaten over the last calender year.

Great match in prospect.

Wolves can take away the Forest threat by just placing their own stamp on the game, by dictating proceedings.

Not since the fifties have Wolves carried a defined system into every game, no wonder results through the decades relied on individual quality rather than team ethics.

This system when applied gives Wolves an opportunity in every game, we should be thankful of that.

Always been admirer of Osborn and Brereton, guess selling Assombolonga has allowed them to keep their promising youth. Tough game that could go either way.

Watching on Wolves TV. The usual errors cropping up just like every other time I have watched and it is not even kickoff yet. Still - better than nothing I suppose.

Poor unfocused passing so far stunting any hope of a goal.

Slow, slow, slow slow slow. Our tempo nowhere near high enough. Sloppy passes as well. Nuno not pleased according to reports. Come on lads, we can do much better. Need to win this.

Really poor, lucky Forest aren't pressing us with any intensity.

It is not bad - if you are prepared to be kicked out twice a half and have to spend a minute refreshing. Then there is the white box error that pops up now and then, so far not this match. Last match I watched was Millwall and it kicked me out for five minutes. The five two games of the season I missed over half of the first half and had my money refunded.

Nice goal by the sounds of it. 4 for the season so far for Jota.

Give a passing side a spell of possession like that and they will eventually score.

Too little concentration in this team. Nobody issuing the bollockings in midfield so we slack off too much.
