‘Nobody’s going to want to let Nottingham Forest play – because they know what happens when they do’


Nottingham Forest make the trip to face Ipswich Town on Saturday aiming to get back to winning ways.

And you can watch Reds reporter Paul Taylor look ahead to the Championship clash, as well as discuss Tyler Walker’s new deal, in our latest Forest video.

Mark Warburton’s men lost 2-0 at home to Cardiff City last weekend, leaving them five points adrift of the play-off spots.

Their opponents, meanwhile, go into the match on the back of a 1-0 midweek victory at Derby County which put them just above the Reds in the table.

It will be a return to his former club for striker Daryl Murphy, while midfielder Liam Bridcutt is back in contention for a place in the line-up after being suspended against the Bluebirds.

Front man Tyler Walker will hope to keep his place in the side and cap a week which saw the youngster sign a new long-term contract with the City Ground club.

“I suspect Forest are expecting a game that’s going to be very similar to the one against Cardiff last weekend,” says Paul.

“I’m pretty sure Mick McCarthy will either have been here himself or had his scouting staff watch a game in which Neil Warnock’s Cardiff very much shut Forest down and stopped them from playing.

“I think Ipswich will take a similar mentality, if a little watered down. They won’t want to let Forest play or let them get into their stride.

“That’s probably going to be the kind of challenge Mark Warburton and his side will face for much of the rest of the season, to different degrees, depending on who the opposition are.

“Nobody’s going to want to let them play because they’ll have seen how good Forest are when they do that, and what happens if you go toe to toe with them in a proper game of football.”
