Established English side Nottingham Forest welcome minnows Burton Albion to the City Ground on Saturday and the match can be viewed as one between David and Goliath.

Nottingham Forest endured a terrible campaign last term but the Reds were most certainly not helped by the transfer embargo imposed upon them.

With the embargo being lifted this summer, Forest have brought in a host of promising players and have also acquired the services of a talented manager in the form of Philippe Montanier.

It remains to be seen as to whether Forest are indeed good enough to challenge for promotion and given the strength of the teams in the Championship, doing so will be very difficult for the historic English club.

Nonetheless, one can be sure that Forest will be looking to give it their all and Montanier will want his side to start off on a positive note when they welcome newcomers Burton Albion to the City Ground.

Burton Albion’s story over the last few years has been nothing short of a fairytale and the Brewers managed to earn promotion into the Championship for the first time in their 66 year history under prodigal son Nigel Clough.

Burton have made a couple of decent signings so far this summer but their financial strength pales in comparison to some other teams in the division and Clough’s men have to be considered as one of the favourites for relegation ahead of the upcoming season.

The Brewers will be well aware of the tough task that lies ahead of them this season but they are most certainly not in the Championship just to make up the numbers and the newly promoted side will look to prove their worth during the clash against Nottingham Forest this weekend.

The clash on Saturday will be the first time these two sides will be squaring off against each other in a competitive fixture and it has to be said that Forest head into the encounter as favourites.

While Burton are sure to put up a good fight, Forest look too strong overall and are likely to send their supporters home happy by claiming the three points.
