    NOTTINGHAM FOREST V MAN UTD FA CUP PREVIEW | EVERTON POINTS VERDICT | BRENTFORD IN TROUBLE NOW?

    NOTTINGHAM FOREST V MAN UTD FA CUP PREVIEW | EVERTON POINTS VERDICT | BRENTFORD IN TROUBLE NOW?

    Nottingham Forest face Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round at the City Ground on Wednesday night. Both teams go into the game on the back of Premier League defeats with Forest losing to Aston Villa in disappointing fashion last time out. The last tie Forest played United they were 2-1 winners and will be looking for another win over familiar opponents since the start of last season.

    We'll discuss how Forest could line-up as their returning AFCON players remain out in Ola Aina, Willy Boly and Ibrahim Sangare. United have problems of their own after striker Rasmus Hojlund was ruled out with injury.

    We'll react to Everton seeing their points deduction reduced to six points from 10 and what it could mean for Forest's FFP charge. #NFFC

Matt Davies is joined by Greg Mitchell, David Prutton and former Reds midfielder David Prutton to discuss what went wrong as manager Nuno Espirito Santo came in for criticism for starting Moussa Niakhate as a left-back over Harry Toffolo.

    ASTON VILLA 4 NOTTINGHAM FOREST 2 | POST MATCH LIVE REACTION STREAM

    Nottingham Forest put in a poor performance as they lost 4-2 to Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday as they failed to build on their win against West Ham United last time out. The Reds went into the game without Ibrahim Sangare, Ola Aina and Willy Boly after they all returned from AFCON with injuries. Nuno Tavares was also ruled out with injury as Moussa Niakhate started the game at left-back and struggled, as many did.

    Goals from Ollie Watkins, Douglas Luiz (2) and Leon Bailey saw Forest well beaten even though they got it back to 3-2 with goals from Niakhate and Morgan Gibbs-White. Matt Davies, Mark Sutherns and Mikey Clarke discuss events at Villa Park. #nffc

Great listen - I never miss an episode

This is the best Forest podcast in my opinion. Matt has very varied guests and the production quality is really good. The shows each week cover different topics and there is plenty of variety from post match analysis, previews and big name guests - the pods with Michael Dawson and Matt Forde being real highlights. The comments from the guests are well researched and insightful.
