Field Notes

November 14, 2013

  • Forest’s win over Leicester City last Saturday has certainly raised spirits among the Forest faithful as predicted on these pages, with one reporter suggesting that repeating the same battling performance throughout the season could lead to automatic promotion. Leicester fans might be sick as a parrot after losing at home for the first time this season, but one Foxes site described the Forest goals as ‘sucker punches’ while another conceded it was a ‘classical away performance’ – such guarded compliments are about the best we could hope for from rival fans, though it is important that Forest fans don’t spring the trap of smugness despite the result.
  • Forest youngster Jack Blake looks set to leave Mansfield Town where he has been on loan for a month. Blake initially impressed for the stags but was described as anonymous in their recent 3-0 defeat to Southend.
  • UPDATE: Guy Moussi is set to move to Millwall on loan. Moussi has made only four starts this season, two of them in the Capital One Cup, and hasn’t featured in the first team since September. The Frenchman is believed to be a temporary replacement for Shaun Derry who last week left the New Den to begin his managerial career at Notts County.
