Calderwood: Title Race Wide Open

Calderwood: Title Race Wide Open

Nottingham Forest manager Colin Calderwood firmly believes that the 0-0 draw against Swansea City yesterday evening puts the promotion chase wide open.

Calderwood saw his side slide down the table into 3rd after the highly entertaining fixture at the City Ground. Packed with incident neither side could force the break through as the game ended in stalemate.

Former Northampton Town manager promoted the highly influential midfielder Kris Commons from the bench in a bid to down a rampant Swansea side.

Commons provided a threat to the South Wales sides's goal with good passing play but could not provide the telling pass to unlock the Swansea defense. Calderwood has further lamented Nathan Tyson's last minute chance that could have stolen the all three points from the fixture. A cross by former Swansea City transfer target Grant Holt found the former Swan in the Swansea area but fired his shot over the bar.

Forest fans have not forgotten Dorus De Vries's comments following the home fixture at the Liberty Stadium against the former European Champions. The Dutchman was quoted as saying "''Forest should get the hell out of here quickly because they must be feeling ashamed after getting hammered like that." However it was the Swansea shot stopper that firmly kept the Forest onslaught at bay and earned the praise of Calderwood.

He Spoke On Forest's Official Site

'It's still pretty open - Swansea are definitely not over the horizon which they might have been had they won...defeat would have made it very difficult for us."

It's not just about us catching them - it's about other teams who might have the ability to catch them as well."

Credit to Swansea they've gone away from home and won at Doncaster comfortably and they've taken a point here - without conceding a goal in the process - but they've got to thank their goalkeeper tonight. We created a far bigger danger to them than Doncaster did.'



Forest will be looking to secure all 3 points at relegation threatened AFC Bournemouth at the Fitness First Stadium on Saturday

I wonder what your keeper has to say this time? I thought it a fair result, but perhaps he will see it different?!

I'm sure he'll be very happy. It was exactly the lack of involvement in the first game that caused him to comment. Let's not forget, he was a virtual spectator at the Liberty.

Not so sure about wide open, but there is still a lot of work to be done.

Both teams were unlucky not to go away with 3 points, at least we should have a slight rest now before the Oldham game, you know what RM is like, even though the boys got a point he will want the boys to show what we are capable of, I fear for Oldham, I've got a feeling there will be goals in that game!
