Freedman discusses Forest team selection for match against Watford

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman plans to name a much changed starting line-up against Watford.

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman has suggested at his press conference earlier that he will ring the changes when his side take on Watford tomorrow. 

Forest have been off form recently and Freedman believes that mixing things up could serve his side well, as they look to finish the season strongly.

The likes of Modou Barrow and Gary Gardner should come into Forest's starting line-up, whilst some of the club's academy graduates could also be handed an opportunity.

Forest have little left to play for this season so Freedman is wise to be looking to test all his options out, as next season will be the one where he is really judged.

The Reds were always unlikely to be make the play-offs when Freedman took over, but he will be expected to help them mount a promotion challenge next term.

They will have a first-hand glimpse at the standard they will need to reach to do so tomorrow night, too, as Watford have been one of the Championship's stand-out teams this season.

The Hornets possess some of the best attacking players in England's second tier and they will travel to the City Ground desperate to pick up the three points as they look to break into the automatic promotion spots.
