We have a date.
After Nottingham Forest’s fixture against Reading was postponed over the weekend because of the rain that fell, the footballing authorities have decided that the game will now take place on Tuesday 21st January.
Let’s just say that the fans aren’t happy about it, each with their own different reasons.
For some it was because the game is going to take place in midweek, whilst others complained how long they have to wait for the game to be played, suggesting that this all could have been sorted out a lot sooner.

Forest had been unbeaten for ten games before they subsequently lost two matches on the bounce. Rather than having the opportunity to correct it last weekend, they will now have gone two weeks without playing.
Whether or not that has a positive impact remains to be seen.
Here’s how they responded to the update of when the clash with Reading will actually be played.
Yay can’t wait to freeze to death👍🏽

Why could it have not been rearranged for this midweek both sides had no other obligations

It should have been arranged for midweek, this week.

And there was one fan who pointed out the two sides will be getting rather familiar with each other given the new dates.
Reading twice in 10 days 😴

Although they can’t complain too much, they’re the home team so it’s not as if they have to make new travel arrangements.
Whilst there was one fan who was hoping that all this rearranging would have to happen one more time, which judging by the general reaction of those above, probably wouldn’t go down too well with the rest of the Forest faithful.
Let’s hope it rains again and have the match when it’s warmer
