    Swansea v N Forest

    Back to League action on Wed night against N.Forest after a 12 day break due to last Saturday’s postponed match against S.Wed.
    Of course there was the Man City FA Cup game in between but many first team players were rested for that. Word is that Korey Smith is back in contention after a quad strain and Yan Dhanda has recovered from a knock to his knee last match.
    We face a Forest side in good form and unbeaten in 11 games either side of their Cup defeat against us. Last time out they had a creditable draw at home to Bournemouth.

    HT: 0-0
    Tough game this, Forest playing well, closing us down high up, not letting us play.
    Fast on the counter-attack plenty of Swans passes going astray. Forest hit the bar in injury time.

    FT: 1-0
    Connor Roberts 76’ ran in to the box to meet a Bidwell cross with a powerful header.
    Forest played really well and had their chances but Roberts header was the difference.
    Another 3 points in the bag and we move on.

    Jackaway - That was an 87 min goal.
    Forest a hard team to break down and they could have won this game.
    Who cares, we get the three points.
