Ticket Information: Nottingham Forest

7 December 2018
There will be a head count by manager Alex Neil, who last weekend was without seven senior players and then lost Josh Earl during the game as well to compound matters.
 
At the City Ground, there is no such problem for Aitor Karanka, who after a summer of investment into the squad, has started the season well, as they look for a return to the top table of English football.
 
It will be two very different sides to the ones that met at the back end of January, when goals from Billy Bodin – his first for the club – Tom Barkhuizen and a Daniel Johnson penalty gave the Lilywhites a 3-0 win after a convincing performance on the banks of the Trent.
 
It is almost ten years since we last visited Forest on a Saturday and a large away following is expected to add to what is already set to be a big crowd, so check out details below of how you can be part of the atmosphere.
