Match preview: Nottingham Forest vs Fylde

20 February 2020

Nottingham Forest get back to league action on Sunday afternoon as look to return to second place with a win against Fylde at Eastwood CFC (kick-off 2pm).

The Reds haven’t lost a league game since September 2019 as they have picked up a maximum of four wins out of four in that period and their last league win came five weeks ago when they picked up a 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough on home turf. Bolu Fisher’s cross was turned into the back of the net by a ‘Boro defender after Bex Rayner’s movement in the box left the centre back with no chance of successfully clearing the ball. 

Nine points and six places currently sit between Forest and Fylde in the league standings as The Coasters have only picked up three wins out of 11 league games this season, so far. The North West’s side last league win came in November and The Coasters most recently fell to a 1-0 loss away to Middlesbrough. 

Jodie Redgrave sits top of the side’s goal scoring charts as she has found the back of the net seven times in 13 appearances across all competitions this season. Emily Hollinshead has proven to be an influential player for The Coasters as well this season as she has scored four goals in 14 appearances across all competitions and has picked a whopping seven opposition player of the match awards during that time. 

Precious Hamilton could make her first start in six weeks on Sunday after she made her return as a substitute at the weekend. The striker was introduced as a 70th minute substitute by Andy Cook and she marked her return with a goal as she smashed home a thundering effort on the 85th minute as she added the side’s fifth goal as The Reds brushed aside Ollerton Town to book their place in the Nottinghamshire County Cup final. That was Hamilton’s 23rd goal of the season in only 15 appearances across all competitions and the lethal forward will be looking to add more to her tally on Sunday.
