Key Player:

Lewis McGugan: The talented centre midfielder has had an excellent season so far notably scoring 8 goals, most of them superb strikes. McGugan is a product of the Forest Academy but injuries have hampered his chances of cementing a place within in the first team, especially over the last two seasons. However McGugan has managed to represent Forest 124 times in all competitions scoring 26 goals. Standing at only 5″9 the attacking midfielder possesses good strength on the ball and has a varied range of passing making him an excellent prospect going forward and one certainly to watch out for on Saturday.
