    Apparently a lacklustre showing at Blackpool, and Fulham stuffed us 4-2 at Oakwell. On those bare facts we are priced up at 4/1 to win away on Saturday. But we have one or two bits of information available to us that the bookies may not have factored in.

    We have recently turned a 2-5 home reverse against Forest into a 1-0 win at the City Ground. Secondly, Fulham have won fewer of their home games (4/13) than have Forest (5/12). Thirdly, for the home game against Fulham we were without Conor. We also had Cole Kpekawa in what is now accepted not to be his natural position of full back, which left us vulnerable. Both Fulham and ourselves boast three wins, two draws and one loss from their last six games.

    We are no certainties, but 4/1 (20% chance) underplays our prospects of victory. Clearly we will need to show a little more esprit de corps than against Blackpool, and an early move for Conor by Steve Bruce would mean all bets are off!

    If we get a result on Saturday, then Hecky is a tactical genius! Fulham are the best attacking side I have seen this season, we couldn't handle them.
    Play offs are a serious possibility If we manage to win at Fulham.
