Nottingham Forest have been handed a potential boost by the National League this afternoon. The non-league powers that be have announced that football will resume from tomorrow.
Now, the spotlight will be on the Premier League and EFL as they decide how to move forward. This past weekend saw all fixtures cancelled following the sad passing of The Queen.
Forest had been scheduled to head to Leeds tomorrow. The Reds will now have to wait to discover when they will in fact face the Whites, with it likely to be after the World Cup.
With the National League due to play midweek fixtures this week a decision had to be made. The likes of Notts County, Chesterfield and Alfreton Town will now make a return to action.
It’s not certain yet that Forest’s game against Fulham on Friday will go ahead. There will be a state funeral on Monday for The Queen and a decision will have to be made.
The Reds will be hoping to get the go-ahead to play. It’s been a long wait after a disappointing performance against Bournemouth last time out and some wrongs need to be righted.
With the National League now making a decision, the elite leagues will have to make a decision. It’s expected that something will be announced in the next 24 hours.
Forest handed potential boost by the National League
The events of the last few days have stuck everything into perspective. Football is just a game and The Queen was a national treasure who was worshipped by millions all over the world.
It was absolutely the right call to cancel the weekend’s fixtures. Still, it’s perhaps not gone down too well that rugby league, cricket and formula one has still opted to go ahead.
Forest will hope to get the nod to fulfil their fixture against Fulham. After the fixture, there will be an international break and naturally, the Reds will want more points on the board before that.
The National League’s decision could be telling. As a result, Forest should get the nod to resume their Premier League campaign next weekend.
