    If we're serious about the play-offs, this is a must-win game. I'm going to 2-0 to City.
    Would have said 3, but Forest can be tricky sometimes...

    Of all the remaining games I'm confident of us smashing the everloving shit out of these the most.

    Yes, another big game after the break. Forest have improved in recent months and are all but safe. We should win.
    3-0

    Mick McCarthy's team talk should be easy, just mention the word scabs, if that's not incentive enough.

    Flint is our captain today. That's quite a turnaround in the space of a few months.

    Cardiff City XI: Phillips; Nelson, Flint, Brown; Sang, Vaulks, Pack, Ralls; Bacuna; Wilson, Moore.

    Subs: Smithies, Ng, Colwill, Williams, Hoilett, Ojo, Murphy, Watters, Harris.



    Morrison still growing skin back on his heel?

    Ralls carries on as LWB? Or a back four with Brown as LB?

    Aden Flint skippers the side v Forest today in the absence of Sean Morrison. Curtis Nelson lines up alongside Flint in defence with Tom Sang and Ciaron Brown.

    Cardiff: Phillips, Sang, Nelson, Flint, Brown, Ralls, Pack, Vaulks, Bacuna, Wilson & Moore.

    Re: CARDIFF CITY v NOTTINGHAM FOREST. Match thread

    Interesting. A four at the back or is Ralls at lwb again? Ng not fully fit or has Sang kept the shirt due to his performance at Swansea?

    Re: CARDIFF CITY v NOTTINGHAM FOREST. Match thread

    I suspect Ralls will be LWB again. I’m not surprised Morrison is missing looking at the state of his heel in the pictures, it is a loss in both boxes though

    Re: CARDIFF CITY v NOTTINGHAM FOREST. Match thread

    Biggest weakness Flint, Nelson and Brown have is passing the ball out from the back so this could end up like the away game against Barnsley on the Rodney Parade'esque pitch - proper ugly stuff.

    In some ways I hope they struggle (but City win, obviously) so we don't risk Mick thinking it's a way to go for next season.

    Still no sign of Tomlin. There's a surprise.

    Re: CARDIFF CITY v NOTTINGHAM FOREST. Match thread

    Morrison is a big loss

  19. #19

    Re: CARDIFF CITY v NOTTINGHAM FOREST. Match thread

    Yes, big blow losing Morrison. I assume Ralls at lwb.
    Bit nervous now about this one.

    I can't stand Lewis Grabban but I can't remember why.
