Burnley Preview

31 March 2013

Nottingham Forest will be looking to take their unbeaten run to an impressive nine matches in an Easter encounter at Burnley’s Turf Moor tomorrow (kick-off 3pm).

A late Henri Lansbury strike preserved Billy Davies’ unbeaten record, and tomorrow he takes his team to face a Clarets side who have picked up only two points from their last five home matches.

Sean Dyche’s men did, however, claim an impressive 3-3 draw at Watford on Saturday and they are sure to pose a significant threat to The Reds’ recent run.

Adlene Guedioura will be assessed ahead of the match after sustaining a head injury against Brighton.

Forest will also run the rule over Sam Hutchinson (slight groin strain) and Darius Henderson (back problem).

Burnley’s Ben Mee is available for selection again after the defender completed a suspension.

Forest: 19th
Burnley: 13th

Gareth Taylor

The Welsh striker joined Forest in the summer of 2003 from Monday’s opponents, Burnley, where he averaged better than a goal every three games over the course of a two-and-a-half year spell. He stayed at The City Ground for three years and was made captain by Gary Megson in the 2004-05 relegation season.
 
Taylor, who began his career at Bristol Rovers, went on to play for Tranmere, Doncaster and Wrexham and is now a coach at Manchester City, for whom he made nearly 50 league appearances between 1998-2001.
