Earnshaw to face the Rs

Forest manager, Colin Calderwood, has told their official website that Robert Earnshaw will feature against QPR on Saturday. He has recovered from a hamstring injury picked up in Forest`s draw against Charlton in September. He has missed the last three of Forest`s games.

27-year old Earnshaw is a very experienced and successful striker and is currently Forest`s leading scorer with 5 goals. Earnshaw played for Cardiff City from 1997 until he moved to WBA in 2004. In a total of 205 games for Cardiff, he scored 105 goals. In his short spell at WBA, from August 2004 until January 2006, Earnshaw scored 17 goals. He then moved to Norwich until June 2007 when he moved to Derby.

He was very successful at Norwich scoring 27 goals in 47 appearances, including against our very own QPR! His stay at Derby was short-lived and less fruitful. But, nevertheless, he was one of the names spoken about by Rs fans in the summer, when it became obvious his services were no longer required by Derby. He, however, joined Forest at the end of May 2008 and has scored 5 times in 9 appearances for them so far this season.

With such an impressive score rate, we should all hope that he is not on song for Forest on Saturday!!

Not been in great form, but nevertheless was one of my number one targets in the summer, wished we'd signed him!

You say that - but 5 goals in 9 appearances isn't bad - it's pretty similar to Dex's!!
sandydl
I meant Forest in general, but looking at it, looks a bit like I was refering to Earnie lol - but his record is always generally good! Him an Phillips would have been an unreal partnership
Boxer
Oops - yeah, see wot u mean bout your comment!! Wow, Earnshaw & Phillips - we'd be sitting on top of the heap with loads of goals in the plus column!!
