Match Previews

Match preview: Swansea vs Forest

14 September 2018

After the two-week international break, Nottingham Forest are back in action tomorrow when they make the trip to South Wales to take on Swansea City.

The Reds will be eager to bounce back following the defeat against Brentford before the break and get back to winning ways against Graham Potter's side.

Saturday's game will be the first time Forest have visited Swansea in seven years and they will be searching for their first win at the Liberty Stadium since 2009.

Team news

Michael Dawson has returned to training and is in contention for a place in the squad while Adlene Guedioura could also return following his injury.

New signings Claudio Yacob and Panagiotis Tachtsidis are unlikely to be involved as they lack match sharpness and Hillal Soudani and Sam Byram remain on the sidelines.

From the Forest camp

See below for the pre-match thoughts of Aitor Karanka and Michael Hefele:

The Swansea view

Swansea boss Graham Potter is expecting a difficult afternoon when Forest visit The Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

He said: "Nottingham Forest are a fantastic, traditional club.

"They have a manager who knows how to win games and who knows what it's like to win promotion at this level.

"They had a disappointment in the last game when they were beaten at Brentford, but they have had some good performances this season.

"I think they have enough quality to be pushing at the top end of the table this season, but like everyone they are probably looking for a bit of consistency. Certainly, we know it will be a tough test for us."

One to watch - Oli McBurnie

With four goals already to his name, Oli McBurnie has carried on where he left off last season during his prolific loan spell at Barnsley.

The Scotsman has made a good impression in his maiden campaign in the Swansea first team and he will be hoping to continue to be among the goals.

Match Reports

Swansea 0-0 Forest

15 September 2018

Nottingham Forest failed to make their opportunities count as they played out a goalless draw with Swansea City this afternoon.

The Reds had plenty of openings to find a winner at the Liberty Stadium in a performance which showed plenty of promise, but they had to settle for a point in a game that they were on top for large spells.

Aitor Karanka handed a debut to Saidy Janko at right back, while Adlene Guedioura, Matty Cash, Ben Osborn and Lewis Grabban all returned to the starting line-up.

And it was Osborn who had two good openings inside the first five minutes. Good work by Janko down the right-hand side on three minutes saw the full back deliver a low cross into the middle but Osborn struggled to make a decent connection. Two minutes later and it was Cash this time who had space to cross, Swansea failed to clear and Osborn hit the loose ball straight at goalkeeper Erwin Mulder from 12 yards out.

After a positive start by The Reds, the half continued in a stop-start manner, with both sides conceding fouls before any real rhythm could be injected into the match.

On 29 minutes a nice turn from Osborn inside the area saw him get to the byline, but his cross-shot was well held by Mulder at his near post and on 40 minutes it was Osborn once again who tested The Swans keeper, forcing him to push away an effort which was heading towards the bottom corner.

Jack Robinson then saw his header tipped over from the resulting corner as Forest ended the first half on the front foot but couldn't find the opening goal.

The home side had the first effort of the second period straight from the restart as Yan Dhanda fired an effort in on goal from the edge of the box which Costel Pantilimon comfortably pushed to safety, but Forest remained in control and the side most likely to find the breakthrough.

Joao Carvalho and Gil Dias were introduced from the substitutes' bench and it almost paid dividends on 63 as Dias beat two men on the right and played a fine pass to the left for Osborn who controlled but could only lash his shot high and wide.

As the game headed into the closing stages, it was Forest who had the most attacking intent. Grabban couldn't get a shot away on 83 after good work by Carvalho, then a string of corners nearly created the opener on 87 as Dias's volley was tipped round the post by Mulder.

But ultimately there was no breaking through for The Reds as they left South Wales with a clean sheet and a point.
