Ipswich Preview

4 March 2013

Nottingham Forest will be determined to continue their excellent form with a win over Ipswich Town at The City Ground tomorrow night (kick-off 7.45pm).

The Reds have won their last three matches but must now face an Ipswich side who claimed their first win of the year against Leicester on Saturday.

Billy Davies will run the rule over Danny Collins after the skipper left the field early with blurred vision on Saturday.
 
Greg Halford will complete his two-game suspension tomorrow night, while Daniel Ayala and Sam Hutchinson are unlikely to feature after only returning to training last week. Marcus Tudgay remains a long-term absentee with a broken collarbone.
 
David McGoldrick, on loan at Portman Road from Forest, is ineligible for the clash. Ex-Red Luke Chambers will make his first return to The City Ground since leaving the club in the summer.

Forest - 19th
Ipswich – 15th

David McGoldrick

The on-loan Forest striker scored Ipswich’s solitary goal in their win at home to Leicester on Saturday.
 
McGoldrick, who notched an impressive 17 goals for Coventry before Christmas, has found the net twice for The Tractor Boys since arriving in January.
 
Born in Nottingham, he began his career at Notts County before earning a move to Southampton in 2004. He went on to score a total of 15 goals for the club before moving to The City Ground five years later.
 
He has since struggled to find the net consistently, prompting his loan moves away from the club.

Forest wins over Ipswich: 33 (30 League, 2 FA Cup, 1 League Cup)
Ipswich wins over Forest: 19 (18 League, 1 FA Cup)
Draws: 14 (13 League, 1 FA Cup)
