Although Forest bagged 4 goals in midweek against Morecambe, Reds’ boss Colin Calderwood knows that Swansea will be a much sterner test.

Calderwood was pleased with the number of chances created in the Carling Cup victory, but says chances will not be so plentiful against last seasons League 1 champions.

He told the Nottingham Evening Post. ‘We need to be more clinical, because we will not have as many chances. But if we can take that creativity into a League game, it would be good. We have to give Robert two or three opportunities. That was the pleasing aspect of Wednesday night, the number of chances we created.’

Calderwood might have to rely on the likes of new signing Martin and the midfield to get on the score sheet as well as Earnshaw, due to the fact that his attacking options are limited due to injuries. Earnshaw will probably play the role of loan striker again today, which shouldn’t be a problem so long as he gets the service.
