Matty Cash is the key to a Nottingham Forest win against Blackburn Rovers today

Matty Cash is the key to a Nottingham Forest win against Blackburn Rovers today

Nottingham Forest have been slightly disappointing at times this season but they appear to be heading in the right direction after a few positive results. 

Forest would have been desperate to push for an automatic promotion place after investing heavily during the summer transfer window, but it now looks as if they’ll have to settle for a play-off place at this moment in time.

However, Nottingham Forest will travel to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers in their next Championship encounter. Rovers have been rather impressive in their first season back in the Championship as they also chase down a play-off spot, so Aitor Karanka’s side will be up against it away from home later on today.

Indeed, the Midlands club can be a real handful on their day and if one of their star players turns up then it could be curtains for the opposition.

With that in mind, Nottingham Forest will smash Blackburn Rovers if this man shows up today…

MATTY CASH

Matty Cash, who is valued at £2.25 million (by Transfermarkt), is enjoying arguably his best campaign for Nottingham Forest as he continues to deliver, scoring four goals and one assist in all competitions.

The Englishman has found himself on the substitutes’ bench on quite a few occasions in the current campaign, but he never fails to make an impact off the bench as a valuable player in Karanka’s squad.

So, if the 21-year-old shows up once again later on today then Blackburn Rovers’ impressive home form could come to nothing, as he could help fire Nottingham Forest to a convincing victory at Ewood Park.
