AFCB have to take the game to Forest

It is going to be a very difficult game for AFCB to get any points from at the City ground. I hope that Eddie Howe asks the team to be solid in that first 20 minutes and not give anything away as they try and grow into the game. Having lost the four game unbeaten run at Brentford and been fallible to conceding soft goals, it is important that AFCB get back to not gifting easy results to other teams.
AFCB will have to quell a large partisan crowd at Forest.
Forest will be buzzing at home on a Wednesday night having won convincingly against Bolton at the weekend. Dougie Freedman has had just the start he would have hoped for from his home games and they are on a bit of a role. Chris Burke is in great form for them and even without Britt Assombalonga the goals are flowing for Forest who have scored 11 goals in their last three games. What a time to have to go up to their ground!

Such is AFCB's luck, but you have to go to such places and play with grit and determination if you want to get out of this league by being promoted. These are the games that we have longed for as supporters. They have meaning because AFCB are in a position to have a special season and beating Nottingham Forest is always one of the best feelings that players and fans can experience in the championship.  

Whether Eddie makes changes to the team will be very much in the minds of fans. I would like to see Dan Gosling now if he is ready to go and I think the team needs an injection of positivity to get them back on the winning road - Ryan Fraser. Artur Boruc will feel more under pressure now and Eddie could well bring Lee Camp back into the starting 11. There is a fine line that Eddie will have to tread over whether the players who have got one point from the six on offer in the last two games can pick themselves up or if further change is required. Such decisions will be even more critical to get right now as the games start disappearing fast.
