Nottingham Forest have sold out another away game, this time at Cardiff City for Sunday evening’s live Sky Sports game. Following the announcement from the club, supporters have been speaking of their pride on Twitter.
The Forest faithful often travel in their droves all over the country. Selling out away ends is second nature to the ardent Reds’ fan base and Sunday will be no different.
The Reds sit top of the pops when it comes to away attendances this season. Derby County lie just below them, with Blackpool and Preston North End also good travellers.
Forest will head to the Welsh capital at the weekend looking to make it five successive wins and four on the trot in the Championship.
Steve Cooper will be in for a heated reception given his previous ties with Swansea but he will have three points firmly on his mind.
Forest are playing some beautiful football at the moment. They have a go with attacking intent in each game and a settled eleven is emerging.
Cooper wasn’t happy with Forest’s second-half display against Barnsley. He felt complacency crept in and he’ll want a reaction at the weekend.
Support: The loving feeling is back at Forest
Fans of other clubs will say it’s easy to go and support your team when results are good on the pitch. Whilst that is true, the game is at 4pm on Sunday afternoon, live on television and comes when public transport back to Nottingham is restricted.
That makes this weekend’s sell-out all the more exciting and the Reds will be backed by 1400 fans in the Cardiff City Stadium.
The hosts haven’t been going well but given the nature of the second tier, Forest will be aware that they need a strong performance to claim all three points.
Forest fans are excited ahead of the trip. Here is what they had to say ahead of Sunday’s long trip to Wales.
