Field Notes

July 28, 2013

Forest drew with Motherwell on Friday night with Matt Derbyshire’s fourth goal of pre-season being cancelled out late on.

Derbyshire‘s form has been impressive in the recent friendlies, making this optimistic speculation seem a little less outlandish, but can he continue it when things begin for real next Saturday? We certainly hope so and the Nottingham Post believes there is good cause for optimism across the board for the Forest squad.

In other results, Forest Under-18s were beaten 2-1 by Spurs in a friendly at lunchtime yesterday, with Forest providing ‘strong opponents’ for the Premier League side’s academy.
