Preparing for a tense weekend..

Tension Sheets on standby..

Tension Sheets on standby..

So, back to the present day.  Coventry – a side with pretty much nothing to play for, safe from the drop, no chance of the playoffs.  Suffering from injuries too, with Coleman choosing to field youngsters in their last game against Charlton.  Even the inevitable goal for past Forest target and Nottingham lad Leon Best is unlikely as he’s currently injured.

Anyone else suspicious that all bodes peculiarly well?  They’ve only scored one in their last four games.  They couldn’t beat Charlton.  They got absolutely annihilated 4-0 by Plymouth in the game before that.  Something tells me things aren’t going to prove that easy for us!

Of course, as well as our game we must be mindful of what’s going on elsewhere too – Barnsley have a tricky trip to Reading to deal with, and hopefully Brian Laws will be looking to do us a favour with Southampton visiting them.  And then on Sunday all eyes will be on the ‘old farm derby’ between Norwich and Ipswich.  Norwich are of course down in the scrap with us, Ipswich playing for nothing but pride, and hopefully the irritation of their rivals.

A tense weekend is in store for us, followed by another one, and then another one!  How a drab end of season with nothing to play for appeals right now, pre-match drinks aplenty are in order, I am thinking!
