PREVIEW

Nottingham Forest proved one of the division's better sides in the last campaign and were unfortunate not to see their season culminate in promotion.

Billy Davies - with the financial backing of the Forest owners - was able to assemble a squad capable of challenging for promotion, but they fell foul of eventually promoted Blackpool.

A squad brimming with talent and an experienced manager Forest are surely going to be considered one of the favourites for promotion this time out.

Prediction: 1

Once again a very tough one to pick, but if Forest can hit their straps and get off to a positive start then I can't look beyond them for promotion.

The permanent signing of Radoslaw Majewski is an important step as Davies assembles his Championship challenging squad - a couple more additions may well seal the deal.

If they can get consistency into their game and add those important additions then I back them to finish at the summit of the table.

Isn't 1855 a little early for their formation? :)
