For­est go green for love of Cloughie

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

THE green shoots of re­cov­ery have been on show at Not­ting­ham For­est ever since Stu­art Pearce re­turned to the City Ground in the sum­mer.

But on the mid­week trip to Tot­ten­ham in the Cap­i­tal One Cup, it was the Cham­pi­onship high-fly­ers’ fans who went all green – and we’re not talk­ing elec­tric buses.

Many Reds sup­port­ers who made the trip to north London wore the same colour jumper made fa­mous by Psy­cho’s old gaffer, Brian Clough, in pay­ing re­spect to the tenth an­niver­sary of the leg­endary man­ager’s death from stom­ach can­cer.

The League Cup spon­sors, who are based in the East Mid­lands city, handed out 1,000 tops as For­est fans boarded their coaches to head down the M1, so they looked like those pic­tured next to Old Big ‘Ead’s statue in Not­ting­ham’s Mar­ket Square, above.

And it looked like be­ing ‘Green for Go’ atWhite Hart Lane as Pearce’s young side took a 61st-minute lead through Jorge Grant – only for the Premier League side to progress with three late goals.
