Nottingham Forest are massive…well, we certainly like to think so. Despite that, few could have predicted that a popular television show would be cancelled to get Forest on air.

That is what will happen when Forest take on Liverpool in a little over a week’s time.

Dancing on Ice was scheduled to show its final on the same day as Forest take on Liverpool at the City Ground.

With ITV now taking the game for live national coverage, the Dancing on Ice producers has been forced to put the final back a week.

The Reds will take encouragement from their cup run though. Arsenal and Leicester were beaten before the Terriers on Monday night.

Both sides are decent Premier League opposition but Liverpool will be a different ball game altogether.
