A rare Saturday home game for us.Not confident of getting anything from this especially as our recent home form has been poor and the performances have been abysmal.Already being stuffed by Forest once this season and that was when Pearce was their manager.If Antonio plays he will probably have a great game like he always does against us.

I still haven't gotten over getting absolutely rolled over in Nottingham in August, literally one of the worst performances I've ever seen. Still, was home by 6 that evening.

yeah we made Antonio look like Messi that day and Chris Gunter was at fault for 3 of the goals because he did what he does best and that is failing to stop crosses.The only performance worse that that in recent times was the 6-1 defeat at Birmingham or the 6-0 stuffing at Peterborough in the League Cup in 2013.

Yet another crap showing.Two world class goals and piss poor defending for the other one.Its up top and in midfield where we are lacking.Cox will never ever be a goalscorer.Pog doesnt produce a goal threat.Robson Kanu hasn't put in a decent performance for months.Yakubu is old and unfit.We don't have anybody in midfield who we can rely on to get more than 5 goals in a season.Looking forward to the Summer where there will be wholesale changes.

Just hope our players know how important next Saturdays game at Bradford is.

Thankfully the teams in the bottom 3 don't look capable of putting a winning run together so there is no worry of relegation.

Agree re: Robson-Kanu, although he put in a fantastic performance against Derby, he has been appalling for months now. Said Yakubu would be an absolute waste of paperwork, why couldn't the club have invested in a Nakhi Wells or Eoin Doyle? No ambition from these new owners who are completely anonymous; what are they here for?

Yeah i said the same thing to my mate walking out the ground about the owners.Why don't they stop hiding in the background and leaving it to Nigel Howe to talk once in a blue moon.We haven't heard a thing about them or what there plans are.Maybe they are too busy thinking of things to do with the land.You can count on one hand how many games they have attended.

Pissed me off that we didn't even look to bring in Eoin Doyle who is a talented player but instead we bring in an old man who can barely move and turns slower than a cruise liner.Nakhi Wells is another good player.At least he has a bit of pace.

Enjoyed this. Really good day out, 3 good goals, players full of confidence.

Last few weeks have been great. Going to games with no expectations and just enjoying the day out.
