Can Forest keep it up at home?

07 September 2012 10:57
The Reds are well on their way to improving on last season's City Ground record.

Two wins out of two in front of their own supporters coupled with away draws at Huddersfield and Bolton has left Forest in a very healthy position in the early Championship table and that home form will need to be markedly better than in 2011/12 if a push for the play-offs is to be maintained.

It took the Reds until the 18th October last season to break their home duck as Steve Cotterill inspired a victory against Middlesbrough in his first game in charge.

Only five further wins at the City Ground were to follow however, the lowest total of any side in the division except for relegated Doncaster.

Birmingham City and Derby County will arrive on the banks of the River Trent before the end of September, two games which should attract good crowds as fans take a look at Sean O'Driscoll's new-look side.
