    Fulham host Nottingham Forest Saturday. It will be available via FFCTV.

    Nottingham Forest have earned draws in their two prior road matches this season. Against Charlton and Leeds (two undefeated teams) they came from behind to score a goal around the 78th minute to finish each game level at a goal a piece. Forest are currently in 13th place with 5 points.

    It is reported that Onomah will be available for Fulham, but I wouldn't expect to see any changes to the starting lineup. Odoi is still recovering and will likely be unavailable.

    If it ain’t broke.... If you could bottle up what we’ve got going right now and sell it, you’d be the wealthiest man ever. Let’s just keep it going lads!

    Getting a sense of deja vu:

    Bettinelli
    Sessegnon, Mawson, Ream, Bryan
    Cairney, Arter, Johansen
    Knockaert, Mitrovic, Cavaleiro

    Subs: Rodak, Christie, Le Marchand, McDonald, Reed, Reid, Kamara

    On thing to note is that Onomah is not on the bench.

    Keep this train going boys!

    Short Highlights via Nottingham Forest:


    Word on the street is that Fulham was the victim of some unfortunate officiating. I don't know if that is true or not since I didn't see anything in the highlights that looked amiss (getting my FFCTV subscription tonight probably so I might watch the replay to see).

    Certainly on the two goals Forest scored they earned them without controversy. The first goal was just good work on their part moving the ball around and the second unfortunately falls on Sessegnon for turning the ball over deep in Fulham's half. He's still the best right back we have and if not for some great goal keeping his fantastic volley might have gotten Fulham to within one much earlier in the match.

    Forest is a good team so, no need to panic. On to Cardiff preceded by a mid-week Cup match against Southampton.

    I had a chance to watch more via FFCTV and there were three claims of handball in the box from Fulham. One I thought did hit the player's hand, but I don't think it was in an unnatural position. The second I couldn't tell, but the third was ridiculously obvious. I got a small screen capture of it here:

    The ball is the white oval in the middle. The tan thing under it that looks like a mushroom stem is the defender's arm raised above his head as his hand slaps the ball - blocking Tim Ream's goal-bound shot. So Fulham did have a fair claim that poor officiating made a difference, but that's life.
