Blackburn Rovers vs Nottingham Forest (2-2) – Match Review – 2018/19


Blackburn Rovers maintained their unbeaten home start to the season with a tough draw against a resolute Nottingham Forest team.

Forest had an early chance to take the lead with a penalty, however Lewis Grabban managed to hit the bar on this occasion.

Forest did however get their noses in front with some nice counter attacking football and Grabban made amense and put the ball in the back of the net.

Rovers however dug their heels in and Adam Armstrong managed to squeeze the ball into the net with a cross/shot that beat the Forest keeper. Next up Danny Graham and Bradley Dack linked up again for Dack to tap home Rovers second.

We looked good after that, however Forest were awarded a soft penalty which Grabban this time scored to give them a share of the points.

Blackburn Rovers vs Nottingham Forest – Match Preview – 2018/19

Blackburn Rovers return to league action to take on Nottingham Forest. Rovers come into the match on the back of league cup defeat to Bournemouth.

Nottingham Forest will come into the match after they take on Stoke City in the league cup. However currently their last league math was a victory against Rotherham United last weekend.

Ben Brereton, I expect will be unable to play this weekend as he is still technically owned by Nottingham Forest.

Mowbray will hope to have Charlie Mulgrew back from injury, however he will be without the services of Derrick Williams as he was sent off in the match against Bournemouth in the league cup.

In this video I spoke with Rich Ferraro of the Forest Ramble Podcast. He gave me his thoughts on Brereton and his expectations for Forest this season.

We also look at a few players who have played for both Rovers and Forest and we get a terrible prediction from the Cat.
