Obviously if we win it will totally vindicate the vitriol shown towards Freedman and prove inconclusively that he alone was the cause of our problems as a club. If we win it will finally prove Lennon is the better manager.
However, if we lose there is no way on earth that Bolton fans will line up to acknowledge Freedman's failure was at least in part due to the condition of the club and the impatience with long term austerity to put it right. If Forest win, it won't prove that Freedman is the better manager.
So on the so-called "added spice" front it's a very stacked deck and there's absolutely nothing we can take from it.
As regards the football however, it's a story of two stuttering teams, Forest having faded away after a strong start and more recently losing their star striker for the rest of the season, but they have managed a mini-resurgence under Dougie. Our home draw with them was one of the better early season results but recently we've only managed to get 4 points from the last possible 15 on offer so Lennon needs to find the right formula again.
We are a different proposition under Lennon and will almost certainly be looking to attack so I think our fortunes will hang on our ability to convert chances. If Mills is back/the defence shapes up, we finally have the personnel to cause problems on the break so providing Lennon picks them we have an excellent chance of nicking it.
My feeling is it will be an unsatisfactory draw though, which may push us even further down the table with Millwall being at home to Fulham on Saturday and Reading at home to Wigan tonight.
Top class performance needed from our lads to give us a bit of breathing space.
