Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez says he is expecting an open and exciting game tomorrow when his side take on Nottingham Forest.
The Spaniard is fully aware of the pace that Forest possess, with the likes of Robert Earnshaw, former loanee Paul Anderson and new loan signing Gary McSheffrey from Birmingham.
Billy Davies' side have won their last two and looking to avoid a relegation battle towards the end of the season. Swansea meanwhile have drawn their last 2 and need a win if they want to finish in the top 6 this year.
Martinez told BBC Sport ahead of tomorrow's game:
'They've got a lot of pace up front, obviously Paul Anderson and Rob Earnshaw and now [Gary] McSheffrey,'
'They come in on the back of two very good results against Preston and Reading and that gives you a lot of confidence.
'But we go in with the mentality of trying to win a football game where it could give us three massive points.
'I expect it to be an open game, a really, really exciting game as Derby was.'
A defensive improvement will be needed tomorrow afternoon as we struggled to cope with Chris Porter and Rob Hulse during the 2-2 draw at Derby in midweek.
Despite their predictable play as Williams described it, the two frontmen caused problems for the 2 centre backs and you could say we were lucky to get a point from the game.
A goal was ruled out for offside, a penalty appeal was rejected, the woodwork was hit twice by the hosts and De Vries made some good saves as Clough's side created 18 chances on the night.
Forest can cause a threat tomorrow, especially with the likes of Earnshaw and Anderson - both blessed with pace and agility.
Visit Vital Swansea early afternoon tomorrow for all the build up to the game, with team news, radio commentary, live match feed and chat.
