Forest will take on Leeds at the City Ground in the Championship, and Gardner hopes that the home team pick up all three points.
The 23-year-old midfielder played on loan from Premier League outfit Villa for the Reds during the second half of last season.
Good training session this morning now time to chill out and watch forest come on you redssssss!!!! #nffc— Gary Gardner (@22Gards) December 27, 2015
Forest will head into the game against Leeds on the back of a 2-1 victory over MK Dons at the City Ground.
Dougie Freedman’s side are in good form at the moment and appear to be playing with confidence.
Leeds have also come into some good form of late and have won their last two Championship games.
The West Yorkshire outfit are a point ahead of Forest, and will head into the match against the Reds at the City Ground on the back of a 1-0 victory over Preston North End at Elland Road.
