Yeah as a Blackpool fan I think it's pretty likely that if you get the first goal you'll go on to win it; we don't have the players to park the bus so I reckon we will go all out attack and probably concede early by getting the offside trap wrong or something. The fact that you lot haven't conceded at home in 8 games is a pretty scary stat
Not that we don't have a chance though; if our midfield is in the right frame of mind and don't keep on giving away stupid stray through balls to no-where like in the first half on Saturday and the first half against Bristol City then I reckon we'll put up a good fight.
Didn't think I'd be so nervous about the game to be honest, have been thinking I wouldn't really mind that much if we went out as getting to the play-offs in itself is the best thing that's happened to the club in 40 odd years but have got definite butterflies when I think about the possibility of Wembley now!
God knows what would happen if we got into the Premier League, I think we'd just take the money and run back to the Championship, hopefully getting at least a couple more points than Derby in the process though!
If Blackpool prevent us winning tonight, they are deserve to go to the final.
This is Forest though, we always mess things up! I'm already well nervous, I just hope we keep Adam quiet.
Had Davies in the paper today talking about the game, he seems pretty pumped..
Forest are unbeaten in 20 on home turf, where they have also won 14 of their last 15 outings – and have not even conceded a goal in eight games.
And Davies will instruct his side to go all out to extend that run tonight.
"Robert Earnshaw is definitely in my thinking for the team," said Davies.
"We are intending to score goals tonight, so we will play many goal scorers.
"We will throw everything we have got at it.
"We are going to go all out to score. If they score, we will score three.
"If they score three, we will try to score five.
"We know what we have to do. We can sit and talk about being cautious, about doing whatever.
"But it is what it is. We have to go out and be as attack-minded as we have been all season.
"We have to get the job done against Blackpool and get to the final."
Davies has told his players simply to enjoy the experience – and to make sure they can say they have given their all by the time the final whistle blows.
"Whoever is meant to go through will do, because I am a great believer in fate," he said.
"But we turned them over last time here, it should have been 6-0. Even they will know that.
"Ian Holloway will know that, at the City Ground, we can make it a really tough place to play.
" He will know that and he will be ready.
I think the winner of the play offs will come from our side though, whether it is Blackpool or Forest.
