Nottingham Forest vs Fleetwood Town Match Preview
Fleetwood Town have started the season in excellent style but are backed to lose their 100% record when they travel to Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.
Joey Barton’s side have won 3-1 away to Peterborough and 2-1 at home to AFC Wimbledon to put themselves among the very early pace-setters in League One.
The Cod Army will be especially pleased with the start made by midfielder Josh Morris, who spent a season-and-a-half on loan with Fleetwood from Blackburn before a three-year spell with Scunthorpe and has scored in both matches since returning to the Fylde coast on a permanent basis this summer.
Forest have yet to win under their new manager Sabri Lamouchi, who was appointed during the close season to replace Martin O’Neill in what was something of a shock move considering the Northern Irishman had ended last term strongly.
Lamouchi has had a tough baptism in the Championship, losing narrowly at home to West Brom but then seeing his side grab a point away to Leeds United on Saturday with a Lewis Grabban equaliser despite being comprehensively outplayed.
Even though Fleetwood are in good form, this looks to be a much more winnable assignment for Forest and they are fancied to edge their way into round two.
