Nottingham Forest V Barnsley: Match Preview

Mark Robins has almost a full strength squad to take with him to the City Ground tonight. Only Bobby Hassell remains sidelined through the injury sustained against Derby County.

The Reds carried their good pre-international break form into their game against Doncaster Rovers on Saturday by grinding out a 1-0 win against the run of play, meaning the Reds have won their last three games on the bounce.

However, Nottingham Forest are in even better form, having extended their winning run to four matches by beating the biggest club in the league on Saturday in Newcastle United.

Forest are therefore the favourites with Ladbrokes.com at 5/6, albeit their three victories prior to the win over Newcastle United were against relegation candidates.

Barnsley are a good bet at 10/3, unbeaten in three and having won two of their last three away games, plundering six goals.

Jamal Campbell-Ryce may return to the bench for the Reds following his eye injury but Robins is expected to name the same starting eleven as in the victory over Doncaster Rovers.

Realistically, Barnsley could climb as high as twelfth in the league with victory tonight if other results go their way. Their minus seven goal difference makes it unlikely for them to climb above Sheffield United or QPR.
