English rapper and Nottingham Forest supporter Bru-C has heaped praise on Djed Spence after joining Mark Lawrenson to predict the week’s FA Cup games.

The Reds take on Huddersfield at the City Ground on Monday looking to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.

Steve Cooper has already masterminded wins over Arsenal and Leicester, with the Championship’s in-form team next on the radar.

Attention won’t quite turn towards the FA Cup just yet, with Forest set to play Sheffield United on Friday night.

With the other last 16 ties taking place this week, however, the BBC have had to run their prediction piece with Lawrenson now.

Bru-C joined in this week to deliver his predictions for the ties too and he fancies Forest to win against Huddersfield.

He was also quizzed about Forest and raved about Spence who has stolen a place in the rapper’s heart with his performances this season.

The ‘Paradise’ singer said: “Being totally honest, ever since we started to pick up a bit of form under Steve Cooper, I’ve been saying we are not ready for the Premier League but I don’t want to see the players we’ve got in on loan leave.

“They are all first-choice at the moment. But they would probably all go at the end of the season if we don’t go up, which would be sad; especially Djed Spence, who has been one of my favourite Forest players for a very long time.”

Spence has been mesmerising for Forest

The 21-year-old has arguably been Forest’s best player in both previous rounds of the FA Cup.

Spence has really proved his worth at the City Ground. As a result, he looks set for a big move during the summer.

The challenge facing Forest is to ensure they replace the Middlesbrough man with an adequate replacement.

With Cooper and Dane Murphy leading the transfer charge, supporters will feel confident that another Spence-type addition can be added.

Bru-C will hope the 2-1 win he’s predicted for Forest comes true when the Terriers arrive in the East Midlands on Monday night.
