PHOTOS: Nottingham Forest defender Danny Fox with a blonde beard!

The 28-year-old has dyed his beard in aid of a good cause.

Nottingham Forest defender Danny Fox has dyed his beard blonde to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis.

The Forest man follows in the footsteps of Adam Clayton, who also dyed his beard last year - with it being a rather spectacular blue.

Fox donned his new beard in training and during a press conference in front of the Forest cameras and, it has to be said, it does look quite fetching!

The beard, of course, is in the name of a good cause and donations will be able to be made when Fox's JustGiving webpage goes live next week.

Back on the pitch, Nottingham Forest host Leeds at the City Ground on Saturday evening.

Both Leeds United and Forest achieved forgettable results last weekend, although Stuart Pearce's side at least had a point to show for it.

Forest are currently ninth in the Championship table with 30 points, while Leeds are 19th on 23. The question ahead of this weekend, though, is - will Fox's beard prove the difference between the two sides!?
