Nottingham Forest could see their game against Fulham postponed on Friday night, with the Premier League set to make another huge call.

The Reds are due to face the Cottagers at the City Ground on Friday night as they bid to get back to winning ways.

But, The Queen’s death has left the world reeling and plans are in place for the state funeral which happens one week today.

As a result, policing resources will remain tight and that could see the Premier League suspended for another week.

If that is the case, top-flight football won’t return until October, with Forest set to face Leicester on the third day of the month.

Following the Fulham match, some players were due to head out on international duty and those games should still go ahead.

Forest were beaten 3-2 by Bournemouth the last time out, with the Cherries stunning the Reds to come from two goals behind.

Now, the Reds might have to stew for a few more weeks on the back of that result with another week of fixtures in jeopardy.

Forest will hope that they get the go-ahead to play on Friday but right now, according to The Times, it looks unlikely.

This would be a shame but completely understandable given the circumstances.

The Queen’s funeral should take precedence, although it is a shame that football won’t get their chance to pay their respects to the icon.

The vast majority of football fans would love to be in stadiums signing the national anthem and observing a moment of silence for The Queen.

Ultimately, this latest report suggests that another weekend of the Premier League could be postponed as the country mourns.

Forest will have a few weeks to work on things in training if that is to be the case and hopefully that can help the Reds return to winning ways.
