An April fool’s date with Carlisle..

The second attempt at rearranging our game with Carlisle United at Blundell Brunton Park (my bad!) has been confirmed as the evening of tuesday the 1st April according to their website (no mention on Forest’s just yet, though!), so with a bit of luck I might get a bit further than the centre of Nottingham as I did a few days ago before heading back home again!

Just prior to the rescheduled game, on the friday, we travel to Doncaster – so it’s a pretty damn important few fixtures.  Of course, we’ll have a chance to familiarise ourselves with Carlisle prior to that with their visit to the City Ground early in March.  With a month and a bit before the game, it also gives us valuable time to either get a striker fit, or perhaps one in on loan.

Carlisle of course did us a favour at the weekend by beating Doncaster at their place, although that of course means that their formidible home run is still intact.  Whether or not it remains with visits from Brighton, Luton and Northampton remains to be seen, before we eventually contest a match with them which was originally scheduled for November!
