Back home to face Middlesbrough, another relegation threatened team. They have away form of 3-2-9 scoring 13 and conceding 19. Two of those wins coming at the bottom 2 teams Preston and Scunthorpe and the other against 17th placed Bristol City. They've failed to score in 7 away games but kept 3 clean sheets on the road as well.

Three days later a mid-week excursion down the M4 to play fellow play-off contenders, Reading. They have home form of 6-6-2 scoring 24 and conceding 14.

We round off the month with arguably a very tough match, Forest at home. After a poor start to the season they have been steadily climbing the table and now occupy a play-off place and are the only team in the league still unbeaten at home. Luckily we play them at the Den and they have away form of 4-4-4 scoring 11 and conceding just 11. They have failed to score in 3 away games and kept 4 clean sheets on the road. Their away form against fellow top 10 teams is 1-2-1.
McGugan(10), Blackstock(5), Chambers(4); Tudgay(4) & Earnshaw(4) are their topscorers, with Cohen(6), McGugan(4) & Tyson(4) providing the most assists.
Our record at home to Forest is excellent, 12-10-2 scoring 43 and conceding just 21.
(Last season - n/a)

A decent balance of games with plenty of points avaliable to help send us up the table, we play 3 teams in the top 10 which will hopefully give us a chance to finally get a win against a top 10 team(currently we are 0-6-3) and prove we have the quality and ability to compete at the top of this league.
