The Hatters are back in action tomorrow night against Nottingham Forest, looking to secure back-to-back wins after victory at the weekend.

Following the comeback 3-2 win against Sheffield Wednesday, Town will be eager to continue where they left off against the Reds, who are two places and a point behind Nathan Jones’ side at the start of play.

Who?

Founded in 1865, Nottingham Forest have enjoyed plenty of success during their time as a football club. The two-time FA Cup winners (1897-98 and 1958-1959 seasons) won the first division in 1978 and in the following two campaigns, lifted the European Cup consecutively.

 

The Manager – Chris Hughton

The vastly experienced Chris Hughton took charge of Nottingham Forest following Sabri Lamouchi’s dismissal earlier this season.

He most recently endured a five-year spell as manager of Brighton & Hove Albion, before arriving at the City Ground and has since lifted them up to 16th position.

 

Main threat – Glenn Murray

Glenn Murray arrived at the City Ground during the January transfer window and has since found the back of the net on two occasions.

The 37-year-old certainly knows where the goal is given his history for the likes of Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion, the latter whom he scored 111 times for in 285 appearances.

 

When and where?

Kick-off is 7:45pm at the City Ground on Tuesday 2nd March.

 

Man in the middle?

The referee for Tuesday’s match is Jeremy Simpson – who most recently took charge of the Hatters in the 1-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers in January.

 

Played before?

The two sides contested a 1-1 draw against Kenilworth Road despite Forest being reduced to 10-men for the second half.

Highlights from that match are available to watch on YouTube here…
