My preview of Nottingham Forest v West Ham


Will our away form continue tomorrow afternoon at the City ground? 
Out of 113 competitive meetings, West Ham have won 44 and Nottingham Forest 43, while 26 have been drawn.


The last time we met in the championship at the City ground Forest triumphed 2-1 in September 2004, but it was Nottingham Forest's first win in 10 home league clashes with West Ham.


The Hammers have scored 150 league goals against Forest.Forest have avoided defeat in 42 of their last 44 Championship games at the City Ground.


As for team selection, I will lose all faith in Big Sam if Ilunga starts tomorrow and puzzled if he  even makes the subs bench.


It is great that West ham have signed 22 year old Sam Baldock from MK Dons. I am not sure whether he was registered in time to play on Sunday but I do hope so. I read somewhere he has scored 5 goals in 5 games for MK Dons this season.


This is a scouting report from the Guardian two years ago http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/blog/2009/mar/17/mk-dons-sam-baldock-scouting-report


Here is one of Sam's recent goals on Youtube in the May Play off final semi in May 2011



My prediction is a very hopeful 2-1 away win to make it 3 out of 3 on the road


Come on you irons
