A weekend off for Forest..

Bristol Rovers tonight managed to beat Fulham on penalties in their FA Cup third round replay.  This means they get to play their fourth round tie on saturday, rendering our league game with them at the City Ground a bit of a non-starter!  A disappointing end to the evening’s proceedings, although who knows – if we manage to get a signing in before the window shuts maybe it’s a good thing?

Congratulations of course are due to the Gas for holding their nerve to beat the Cottagers on penalties.  While we’re at it, Derby too managed a giant killing of their own, limping to a draw after extra time against Sheffield Wednesday and eventually triumphing on penalties too.  It must make a nice change for them to experience winning a game, mustn’t it?

This means that whilst we’re resisting being dragged shopping with our other halves, fans of Swansea, Doncaster, Leeds or Carlisle could be celebrating an opportunity to put even more points on the board whilst we’re left with nothing but the dreaded game in hand.  Of course, at least it can’t be both Donny and Swansea fans celebrating, as they meet one another at the weekend – a tough choice, lose more ground on the Swans, or have Donny overtake us in the table?

More irksome is the fact that saturday has already been planned around the rituals of a home match, and now I need to find some alternative way to entertain myself!  So it’s official, Fulham are rubbish and I’ve got a proper strop on!  (I said strop!).
