Scotland: Sets His Sights On Forest

Scotland: Sets His Sights On Forest

Swansea head to Robin Hood country this evening in the hunt to shoot down 2nd placed Nottingham Forest.

The top of the table clash has left Jason Scotland relishing the prospect of becoming the league's top goal scorer this evening. The Trinidad striker is sitting on top of the goal scoring charts with Leeds United's out of form striker Jermaine Beckford with 16 goals in all competitions. Wary not to lose concentration ahead of the most pivotal fixture so far this season Scotland has been remarkably calm.

The last two meetings between the two sides could not have been more closer affairs which should make an thrilling occasion at the City Ground this evening.

If Forest manager Colin Calderwood was looking for comfort ahead of the clash he only need look at the Reds impressive home record this term. Without a loss at home since the 2-1 loss to Leeds United on the 25th September the fortress of the City Ground will provide a stern examination of Swansea City's promotion credentials.

Despite this impressive home record Calderwood's side will come up against a rampant Swansea outfit that demolished one of the in form sides in the league this season in the guise of Doncaster Rovers. Martinez's side made the long journey to South Yorkshire last Friday and sent a clear signal to the rest of the division after the 4-0 win over Rovers in a game that could have seen Swansea score more.

Scotland Told The Evening Post

"I'm scoring goals and I'm playing people in - I should be delighted nobody in this squad is getting carried away."

We have all got our sights set on winning promotion and we're all keeping our feet on the ground.That's the most important thing for us because things could all go wrong very quickly if we stop working hard."

We've got a great bunch of boys here. Every one of us is excited about the challenge we face and we're all looking forward to going to Nottingham Forest.Forest are a big club and we are aspiring to get to the Championship, so it's a big game.

We would probably take a point, but then again we would have taken a point at Doncaster and look what happened there.'

To be 11 points clear at the top is a great feeling, and now we have to try to do it all again against Forest.'



Should Swansea win this evening and other results go their way Roberto Martinez's side could go 14 points clear at the top of league one.
