    Default Our next biggest test will be...........

    (in the league)

    How we perform defensively when/if Dawson gets injured...

    Don't get me wrong we have some good replacements on standby but Dawson's organising and influence so far this season has been invaluable.

    Please feel free to add your next biggest test for Forest

    1 Coping without Grabban as we have no viable alternative;
    2 Bouncing back from the inevitable loss of form/poor run of results;

    Just inconsistency last season even under karanka winning 2 on the bounce was a task we struggled with. Barnsley is an interesting one last season we’d do the same pick up a cracking win and then fall at the next hurdle. I’m hopeful we are stronger and that it won’t happen so often. But this is the championship and any team can beat anyone on their day.

    Yup. Winning when we're expected to. Beating Swansea and Fulham as underdogs is one thing but playing teams who come and try to stop us is entirely different.

    Have to beat Barnsley! The biggest test is consistency - did we even win 2 games on the trot last season? So far this season we've not taken teams lightly and clearly had a game plan but we've played 7 of the top 10 so Saturday is definitely a big test!

    I think we are at our worst when we are the better team on paper. We need to learn how to dominate the ball and games when we are the better side. Away from home against playoff sides we are great but the test for us is when we have to go out and take a game to someone.

    The last time we were the better team on paper we won 3-0, against relegation candidates Derby.

    The biggest test will be beating the 15 or so shit teams that will come to the WFCG already with a point and are happy to take that away before a ball is kicked.

    Winning at Swansea will mean fuck all if we dont roll Barnsley.

    Teams like Barnsley will come to the WFCG and know that they can silence the crowd if they stop Forest creating.

    The place was like a morgue vs Preston - and they are a decent team. The derision from the crowd if we fail to put Barnsley to the sword will be louder.

    I do have faith in SL picking the right team to open Barnsley up though. He certainly has plenty of creative players at his disposal

    We will beat Barnsley, although we may need to be patient.

    They looked all over the place against Leeds’ set pieces, and is we know, Leeds struggled against ours.

    Get your money on Dawson or Worrall as first scorers.

    A draw wouldn't shock me against the Tykes.

    Need to overcome this hoodoo against the 2cnd division humdrum, thee also-rans.

    I don't get to see Forest often but always manage the north-west games. Can't remember when I last saw us win up here. Therefore, October is massive as it's Blackburn and Wigan. Six points at those two and it's champagne on ice time.
