Vital Statistics - Nottingham Forest

Vital Statistics - Nottingham Forest
PompeyFrippy's 'Vital Statistics' ahead of Forest's trip, and a quick return of Steve Cotterill, to Fratton tomorrow.

Nottingham Forest:
* Despite a poor start which saw Forest pick up just 8 points from 11 games, Forest have won 3 out of their 4 games since Steve Cotterill has taken charge.
* Forest currently sit 19th in the table, just one place and one point above Portsmouth.
* Only West Ham, Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough have won more away games than Forest this season.
* Forest's trophy cabinet includes the trophies for the FA Cup(2), the League Cup(4), the European Cup(2), and the old Division One (1).

Portsmouth:
* Portsmouth are looking for their third successive home win for the first time since March.
* 4 of Pompey's next 6 league games are scheduled to take place at Fratton Park.
* Pompey boast a better home record than any other team in the bottom half of the table.
* Maximum points could see them jump up the table by as many as 6 places.

Head-to-head:
* Pompey have won 6 of the last 7 meetings against Nottingham Forest.
* Dating back 35 years, there has only been 1 draw between the two sides in 22 encounters.
* Forest have failed to score more than 2 goals in each of their last 18 meetings with Portsmouth.
* Liam Lawrence spent part of his youth career at Forest, as did caretaker manager Stuart Gray, who later went on to play for them for 3 years. Ex-Pompey manager Steve Cotterill will be assigned to the away dugout for the first time since departing Fratton Park.

Special Treat:
* This week's treat goes back nearly 20 years to when the two sides met at Fratton Park for the right to face Liverpool in the FA Cup Semi-Final. Pompey won the match 1-0 thanks to this fortunate goal from Alan McLoughlin. The commentary is less than enthusiastic, but how different does Fratton Park look?
