From the opposition

Grant McCann is looking for his side to bounce back against Nottingham Forest following consecutive defeats against Huddersfield and QPR.


He said: “Saturday was disappointing for everyone involved but the good thing about this league is that the games come quick and fast.

“We were on a decent run of form – going five games unbeaten – but now we’ve had a couple of defeats on the bounce it’s important to produce a response.

“We’ve picked the bones out of the QPR defeat and we go again with tomorrow night’s trip to Nottingham Forest.

“We know we’re in for another tough test. Every game in this league is tough and we expect nothing different from a Forest side that has started the season very well.

“We’re under no illusions about how tough it will be but we’ll embrace the challenge and everyone is very much looking forward to it.”


Oliver Langford is the man in the middle for tomorrow night's game, taking charge of his second Forest game this season.

The referee from the West Midlands was in charge of the 1-1 draw at Charlton in August and he has shown 46 yellow cards and one red in his 12 games so far this season.
