    Default Matchday 16: Nottingham Forest vs QPR



    Nottingham Forest vs Queens Park Rangers

    Date: Saturday 4 November
    Location: The City Ground, Nottingham
    Kick off: 15.00


    Forest welcome Queens Park Rangers to the City Ground off the back of a disappointing midweek showing and defeat against Reading at the Madjeski Stadium.

    However the Reds will take heart from the fact that QPR have never beaten them at home (in any competition) in their 33 visits to the City Ground since 1934, their most recent meeting Trentside being a 1-1 draw in 2016.

    Both teams are currently tied on 21 points and sit 12th (QPR) and 13th (Forest) in the Championship. However QPR arguably enter the encounter on the better run of form having picked up two home wins and two away draws in their last four matches. After a run of losing three home games in a row, Forest's form against visiting opposition has picked up, the Reds winning both of their last two home matches against Sheffield United and Burton Albion.

    Mark Warburton will be looking for an improved performance and a win at home to keep his side in the top half of the table, whereas QPR, having scored in all but one of their away fixtures this season, will be hoping to exploit Forest's weaknesses in defence to snatch three points and close in on the top six.



    Form:


    Nottingham Forest: L W W L W
    QPR: W W D D L

    Recent league meetings:




    Team styles:






    Did you know?

    • QPR hold the record for the club that has played their home games at the most number of grounds since they were formed in 1886 having played their home games at no less than eighteen stadia over the years, and will move for the nineteenth time when they move to their new Old Oak Common ground in 2018

    • In 1981 Loftus Road became the first professional football stadium in England to have an artificial pitch after the club installed Omniturf at the ground

    • QPR's best ever league finish was in the 1975/76 season, notably Brian Clough's first full season at Forest, where they lost out on the League title finishing runners-up to Liverpool by a single point

    2 wins against the top 2 from nowhere after being in poor to average form and dropping down the table.

    They've been playing 3-5-2 or 5-3-2 which ever way you look at it. You know you going to get all action in your face performances from Holloway's teams.

    To me we need to get 3 points here because it is at home and we need to bounce back.

    Should you have started this thread Bangerz?

    Anyway, I like your style so no complaints from me. I hope it summons up a win though the fact they have never won at the CG is a worry. We keep coming up against these teams who haven't won on a Saturday for twenty years or something and we give them a present of three points.

    I expect the thrilling pass and move side to turn up and stuff them, finally lifting our GD to the plus mark.

    Isn't this breaking protocol again?

    And if it is does that mean that we won last time because we broke protocol, but lost to Reading because we kept protocol, so we'll win this coz we're breaking it again?

    Need to win this, just to shut up that rat-faced runt Holloway.

    Nervy 2-1, Walker to start and score a brace.

    Bah! I laugh in the face of protocol!

    Forest need some consistency, and it all starts from the matchday threads up

    In all seriousness though, if I've broken protocol and someone else wants to do the matchday thread then I won't be offended if this one gets taken down

    To be honest, I like it when the next match thread is started swiftly especially after defeats.

    Protocol ey.

    Smith
    Lichaj Worrall (Fox/Mance) Traore
    Bridcutt Bouchalakis
    McKay Dowell Osborn
    Brereton

    If Fox was fit Id play him. Id also give Brereton a shot at the lone role & keep Walker as an impact player for now.

    Won't be easy, but we can win this.

    Am I the only one who thinks Tyler Walker’s recent impact as a sub, deserves him getting a start, particularly if Daryl Murphy isn’t available?

    12th versus 13th, a relegation six-pointer.

    We've got to draw at some point, surely.

    Im losing sight of where we're going with Brereton to be honest.

    With Vellios seemingly out the picture, surely Breretons previous showing in the lone role makes him next in line for the shirt.

    I like Tyler Walker, but not sold on him jumping the queue based on a couple of cameos.

    Id give it Brereton, he'll be straining at the fucking leash.

    When was the last time Brereton played the lone striker role? Anyone know?

    He got a few starts up there on his own for Gary Brazil. Definitely started alone in the Burton away game in March & a few others with McCormack in behind him.

    Ian Holloway's QPR are like the anti-Forest. I don't think we could have two more contrasting teams.

    Be interesting how we deal with their work-rate, high pressure and physical nature. We need to move the ball quickly when we have it.

    Let's put it this way, if your breaking of protocol fucks up our 83 year unbeaten run against this lot, you're going on my bonnie.

    Well i think the Cummings experiment came to a conclusion last night with not very good results.

    QPR have never won at our ground in 33 games, not won away from home since Febuary. Holloway is their manager - Qpr win 2-0.

    Having broken protocol maybe we should give whoever it was at the beginning of the season providing us with the Ali boxing match run.
