Charlton Preview

21 February 2013

Billy Davies goes on the road with his new Nottingham Forest side for the first time on Saturday as The Reds take a trip to Charlton Athletic (kick-off 3pm).

His men will enter the capital full of confidence after brushing Huddersfield aside in midweek, but they will have to be on their guard against a Charlton team who ended a poor run of form with a surprise win at Leicester on Tuesday.
The Addicks currently sit in 13th place and Chris Powell will be determined to lead his men to a victory which would see them leapfrog Forest by a point.
Davies has revealed that Forest have a fully-fit squad to choose from after some of his players shook-off knocks in midweek.
Charlton are not reporting any fresh concerns.

Carl Tiler

The no-nonsense defender crossed the border from South Yorkshire to join Forest from Barnsley in 1991.

He featured regularly until sustaining a serious ankle injury and eventually left for Aston Villa in 1995 after making a total of 69 league appearances for The Reds.

He signed for this weekend’s then-Premier League opponents, Charlton, in 1998 and remained on their books for three years before joining Portsmouth, where he retired in 2003.

The former England Under 21 international also had spells at Everton and Sheffield United.
