Key players: City’s Jonathan Grounds is rumoured to return after injury;
the team have shipped fourteen goals in his five-game absence – it took
13 games to concede that number, previous to his injury.

Forest’s mercurial season has seen them claim crucial victories over
league-leaders Wolves and mid-to-bottom Norwich, Hull and Bolton – even

and we believe that the time has come for Steve Cotterills troops to get
back on course. It has been four years since Birmingham recorded their
last win over Forest at the City Ground, but the fact that the Blues
defeated the Reds in the first half of the season goes in favour of our
City are in dire need of a win as Steve Cotterill’s position comes under
pressure. Fans reacted angrily to their 2-0 weekend loss to Barnsley,
marking a fourth consecutive goalless defeat. Low on confidence, the
Blues’ are reported to have managerial replacements lined-up if there’s
no sharp upturn in form.
