Latics miss out on Mensah

Reports from France suggest that John Mensah is ready to reject the opportunity to move to the Premier League with Wigan Athletic and sign a four year deal with French League Champions Lyon.

Forest arrive at the DW Stadium just six points ahead of us in the standings, they have injury problems, particularly in defence, they are on a poor run of form having lost their last three games, conceding 10 goals along the way, this is a time when we simpl
