A 'cruel' game for some but can Forest make it two in a row?

The Reds travel to Burnley on Tuesday night Another 'ugly' win will be on Steve McClaren's agenda after his side sneaked past Watford on Saturday teatime in a game that will already be forgotten by those who were there and the BBC Two audience, the Forest boss admitting he wouldn't be watching the video on the team coach home. Vicarage Road boss Sean Dyche may also decide to skip the re-run after declaring that his side were hard done by in defeat. “We played well, we controlled large parts of it, we were well aware of their change in tactical shape before the game and for a large part we delivered very good parts of our performance," he said. “It can be cruel sometimes, football, and it was cruel tonight I felt.” Burnley drew 1-1 with Southampton at Turf Moor on Saturday and share a berth in the lower reaches of the table alongside Forest. Manager Eddie Howe thought his side were 'magnificent' against the Saints but is looking to bring in loan signings in a bid to turn things around at the Lancashire club. "We are monitoring the transfer market every day but it is difficult to bring players in at this stage of the season," he said.
