Cardiff are top of the N-Power Championship standings with a six point lead over Hull City and look odds-on to reach the Premier League, but could have been out out of site had they not drawn their last two games. The Bluebirds were left devestated when Barnsley snatched an equaliser at the death in their last game, but Malky Mackay has urged his players not to dwell on the result and focus on the games ahead. Cardiff have five games remaining and need seven points to guarantee themselves promotion, so will be striving for a positive reult against Nottingham Forest.
Nottingham Forest have surged into the N-Power Championship play-off positions on the back of an impressive ten game unbeaten run. Billy Davies side now sit fifth with a three point buffer to Leicester who sit just outside the playoff places. Forest have scored in each of their last ten games and are undefeated in four away fixtures, but they left it late to preserve their unbeaten run last time out. Blackpool looked like taking the spoils having led for most of the game until a penalty from Lewis McGugan made it 1-1 with just minutes remaining on the clock. That was Nottingham Forests third straight draw and they will have to work hard again on Saturday to remain unbeaten against table toppers Cardiff City.
Cardiff City could have revenge on their minds following the 3-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest at The City Ground back in October while Forest will be looking to do the double over Cardiff and cement themselves a playoff place.
