Alex Looks At Posh

11 January 2013

Nottingham Forest manager Alex McLeish anticipates a tough test when a resurgent Peterborough side visit The City Ground for tomorrow's Kids for a Quid clash at The City Ground (kick-off 3pm).

Posh have won four of their last five Championship matches including victories on the road at Cardiff and Wolves.

McLeish told Forest Player: "They had a horrific start, losing seven league games in a row. Darren Ferguson has changed the shape of the team since then - I was actually there when Forest beat them 1-0 and they changed to a back three.

"They'd obviously been working on that in training and in the subsequent weeks his players got a handle on it. They've played that system well and have managed to climb out of the relegation zone after some very useful victories."

Forest's new deputy manager Peter Grant spent time as a coach at London Road earlier in the season and McLeish hopes his compatriot will be able to bring some useful information to the table.

The Reds' boss said: "Peter's the spy in the camp! He worked closely with Darren and was involved in some of their good victories.

"Maybe he can give us the magic formula on how to unhinge them!"
