Nottingham Forest can confirm that a couple of alterations have been made to the club’s upcoming 2014-15 pre-season schedule.Since last month’s announcement of a friendly against SC Braga, the Portuguese side have since appointed a new manager who has decided on a new location for their pre-season campaign.
Therefore the two clubs agreed to cancel the friendly as soon as possible in order to help the travelling commitments of both players and supporters.
