Preview: Nottingham Forest (H)

7 August 2012

A look ahead to this evening's local derby...

This evening the Magpies will face local rivals Nottingham Forest in the final match of pre-season.

The fixture will provide a stern test ahead of Saturday’s Capital One Cup clash with Bradford City at Meadow Lane.

Keith Curle’s side are eager to entertain the home fans after Sunday’s disappointment, which saw the match with AEK Athens abandoned at half time, following a torrential downpour. 

As always with the Nottingham derby, a great atmosphere is expected so make sure you don’t miss out. 

Supporters can also get their hands on the new away and goalkeeper kits for the new season tonight. To purchase online, visit www.theclubshop.co.uk/nottscounty

MATCH BUILD-UP
Keith Curle: “A local derby, it’s always fantastic for this football club to compete on a level playing field in a pre-season match. They’ve had some good results in their pre-season as well and they are an established Championship team, so it will be a test for us. The last game of our pre-season, you couldn’t ask for a better game.”
