difficult one to call; if arsenal hadn't of played that game midweek i would fancy your chances. but that win in milan is sure to have given them a huge boost. perhaps not a stuffing but a comfortable 2-0 is on the cards i think. although the absence of walcott will be a boost for you.

I think we will win but we have to watch out for Scharner at set peices as he is good against Arsenal.

Report - Latics 0 Forest 0 - What A Shocker

Thirteen games to save our Championship status, first up a home game against Nottingham Forest who are on a shocking run of form, conceded 10 goals in their last three matches, three of their first choice defenders missing through injury, they had lost 11 of their 16 away games this season with a -16 goal difference on the road and sat just six points above us in the table, surely a game that we would set out to win.

Checking the team selection I felt slightly optimistic but slightly conf
