Match: Nottingham - Reading  0-0  (CC Championship)

Attendance: 21 571

 

After a good nights sleep I travelled to Nottingham, via Birmingham and Derby, and was at my hotel by 11.30 before making the 10 minute walk to City Ground, passing Meadow Lane (the home of Notts County) on the way and it is nice to see two grounds so close to each other.

Nottingham Forest are once again back in the second tier of English football, after spending a couple of years in League One, and with the opponents being Reading , relegated from the Premiership, there was plenty to look forward to for the home fans.

My seat was in the back row of the Main Stand and with the most vocal home fans just next to me it was never going to be a boring afternoon. Reading  had the best chance of the match, a late header was tipped off the bar, but I guess a draw was a fair result, although I had hoped for some goals...
