Hopefully Buendia's and Leitner's knocks weren't too serious!

Oh and Merry Christmas!

Fairly straight forward home win, providing we haven't are too much turkey.

No such thing as a straight forward win in this division, we have a good chance if we can keep Lolley quiet though

I've seen on Instagram the players in for training as we speak, Tetteys trousers!

Having had a surprise home defeat vs QPR, Forest will be well up for this match, expect a real tough tussle.

Grabban will score, we’ll get two in the 89th and 93rd minutes

Shame about Leitner. Good news though that Buendia is ok, though I would've probably started Hernandez for this over Buendia/Cantwell. Huge call to keep Godfrey in despite Klose being fit, got to trust Farke though, who this season has got so many of those big calls right.

Think this game is gonna be tougher than Derby in a few days time, so a win would be a fantastic result. A draw wouldn't be too bad at all though either. I've got work at 5, so even though I work at Riverside, I'm probably gonna have to leave 5 minutes or so before the end, which considering how many late winners we score is quite annoying. Hopefully we're 4-0 up by that point so I can leave without missing some ridiculous late drama. OTBC.

Some f*cking ridiculous officiating.... the one where Cantwell was obstructed then Vrancic brought down and then Forest break only for Godfrey to get a yellow card takes the biscuit, thank god that free kick didn't go in as there would be uproar. That's after a very obvious Norwich corner and a Norwich throw in being given the other way.

Either the officials are still drunk from Christmas day or they have been given a brown envelope from a Forest director before the game... probably the former though, otherwise Stiepermann would have been given a red.

And I don't very often moan about refs and am quite good at remaining partial when judging their performance, this one is a mug.

I know not what to say................................other than what a brilliant show of never say die. To come back from 3 down..................massive. I hope these injuries to Zimms and Buendia do not prove to be lengthy, we could do without too many more. So chaps, onwards and upwards. OTBC.

Don’t forget the handball that wasn’t given, plus whoever scored their third and celebrated with the fans should have been booked. The ref completely bottled giving a couple of their players a second yellow. Typical Karanka team I thought, plenty of gamesmanship if they could get away with it.

In fairness to Forest they have two very decent young inverted wingers in Lolley and Cash who I believe are both youth team products, they were very dangerous on the counter.... Both good little players.
