Actually started playing a bit when scored the first, been all Reading since

I would suggest Reading really need to go for it now as Forest are starting to look a bit ropey

Forest have a goal disallowed. If we score that'll prove popular.

They've got a great record at home against the top six too.

We can drop points in two of these last three games and still be pretty confident of making the POs. Obviously we'd be better served making it safe sooner rather than later.

1pt will guarantee the play-offs, officially out of the automatic race now.

Ah well - Forest have a few scalps at home this season so was always going to be tough, and with Leeds losing no real damage done.

Tight result in the end. Still very fragile away from home particularly without our first choice defence. I may be making this up, but I recall Gunter and McCleary often failing to deliver against Forest (obvs McCleary not involved this time).

Work required, but we've been like this all season and still sit comfortably in the POs. It's just another sign we've got to be on our game and focused for every match. Lets face it, if we were good enough to pick up more results away from home we'd be promoted already. This is just the nature of the POs. Look at Leeds, and the others who've had their fair share of the same sort of results.

If we lose to Burton and Wigan as well, we'll deserve to miss out on the POs, but might still make it. I still think we'll pick up at least another three points, almost certainly more, and that'll do it for us.

Looking at remaining fixtures and the table, Leeds really are Struggling to get in now. Shame that.

This is definitely hitting me pretty hard right now.

After watching Huddersfield Fulham I'd love to have Huddersfield in the Semi, their GD is only +2 for the season and they really looked nervous today, played much better 2nd half but way too easily cut apart in the firstt

Not last time against Forest - Gunts actually scored his one and only league goal for us in the home tie (and celebrated, to boot), and McCleary scored the other one.

Agree with the rest of the post.

First time I have seen Popa today and he looks nothing like the YouTube clips i'd seen of him. Can't defend and has no pace. Whoever scouted him needs a word. Be surprised if we see much more of him.

Played right wing back which isn't his natural position. He works hard but isn't a defensive minded player. Played well in the same role at Villa Park

If it doesn't get done and dusted next Saturday both us and Burton need 1 point. Us to guarantee the play offs and them to guarantee they stay in the Chump. Last game could be a bit interesting. Draw anyone!!!
