Saturday's game at Watford marks the halfway point of a season in which the Reds have, to date, won 8, drawn 9 and lost 5 of their 22 matches.

Sides such as Crystal Palace and Millwall are above Forest in the league despite spending less but the Reds will enter the second half of the season above all of last year's relegated trio.
