Football: Weekend guide to the Premiership: Nottingham Forest v Blackburn
Last season: No fixture
Saturday 19 December 1998
Rovers, seeking to sustain their encouraging start under new manager Brian Kidd, include their pounds 2.35m signing Keith Gillespie in the squad travelling to the City Ground, and could also have Chris Sutton returning to action after a six-week lay-off through suspension and injury. Kevin Gallacher will again be missing, however. Centre-back Darren Peacock is available again after recovering from a broken toe and goalkeeper John Filan, who has been suffering from concussion, faces a late fitness test.
