Reds not good enough and lose....               ...again

Canary-body believe it?

He had been out on loan with third division Kidderminster Harriers where he'd put in some excellent displays. The problem isn't too serious and Wes hopes to return to Kidderminster before the end of the week to complete his loan spell... On the back of the phenomenal demolition of arch-enemies D*rby, it was a distinct possibility that things couldn't get any better. But here today, they did. Another bumper City Ground crowd of 27,296 witnessed Forest obliterate the on-form Norwich with a resounding display. Forest's passing play seemed back at it's pinnacle, as on-loan Darren Huckerby rifled home early on. Next, the thriving Marlon Harewood rose to head home his nineteenth of the season. And it was stand-in-skipper Gareth Williams who stylishly buried the points in the second half. Canadian Jim Brennan struck home his first goal in a Forest shirt to make it 4 late-on...

Forest set seal on Playoff place. Forest today confirmed they will play a part in this seasons first division playoffs after a 3-3 draw in front of a packed City Ground. Due to security measures Millwall fans were not allowed to gain entry to the match and therefore Forest fans occupied all areas of the ground. With Forest essentially needing one point to secure their finish in 6th place everyone wanted to be there to see it. The Reds got off to a great start and after 22 minutes Forest had taken a two nil lead. Eoin Jess, scored first with a neat shot placed into the bottom corner of the goal. Eugen Bopp then made it two with a deflected shot into the same corner.

By this stage Forest looked comfortable, but Stuart Nethercott pulled a goal back on 27 minutes, and then mid way through the second half Tim Cahill's sweet freekick got Millwall back onto level terms. With news coming through that Ipswich were losing to Wimbledon, a place in the playoffs being confirmed still seemed probable. Forest were back ahead moments later when David Johnson deflected a Jess shot and increased his tally for the season to 27 goals.
