Nottingham Forest go in search of another Cup scalp this afternoon as we face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in our third round FA Cup tie.

With the pressure growing in recent weeks on manager Aitor Karanka as the wheels fell off somewhat when it came to our Championship campaign, the fans more than made their thoughts known in our last second tier clash and with the pressure off slightly more now, fans know how tricky this tie will be so the hope will be for the side to put in a solid performance and then we’ll simply see where that takes us.

This kind of game you just have to go into believing in the magic of the Cup and that was certainly Karanka’s message ahead of kickoff, so over to the following lads given this is the starting lineup our manager went with.
