Chambers, who scored the winner last year battles Darren Pratley, a Forest summer target

Last season this match had me very worried. Swansea were a very dangerous opposition and we were wobbling somewhat. The same is still somewhat true, insofar as we only have the one win to our name, and Swansea retain much of their danger.
Pratley is obviously where a lot of tomorrows attention will be. Whether he gets booed, or merely gets "You could have signed for a big club" sung a lot at him. Pratley we all know is dangerous, we saw that he should have scored against us last season, when Pratley should have get a penalty, and didn't for one of the most obvious penalties I have ever seen. That aside his drive from the midfield will be a constant danger. Also a danger will be the on-form striker Scott Sinclair recently signed from Chelsea and already being linked back to the Premier League.
For Forest, it will be too soon for McGoldrick who played for the reserves this week to think about the first team yet, and start to deliver on his 15 goals this season promise. Earnshaw is a major doubt, so Blackstock is almost certain to start, and Kelvin Wilson may still be missing, with Chambers likely stepping in for him. Chambers of course scored the injury time winner last year when he got a free header at the back post.
I can foresee another close game but with Forest coming out with their first home win of the season.
