Forest in good shape

19 February 2010 09:29
Nottingham Forest have no new problems as they go in search of a club-record ninth straight home league win against Middlesbrough. The Reds recorded their eighth successive Championship victory at the City Ground against Sheffield United in midweek, equalling the club's best run during a season achieved under the legendary Brian Clough in 1980. Robert Earnshaw scored his 150th career league goal in the 1-0 win against the Blades on Tuesday night. The Wales international was recalled along with fellow striker Dexter Blackstock and midfielder Paul Anderson and all three players look set to keep their place with boss Billy Davies expected to name an unchanged side. Forward Garath McCleary serves the second of a three-match suspension while full-back Joel Lynch remains out with a thigh injury.
