Nottingham Forest v Luton Town situation explained amid Storm Babet disruption

Nottingham Forest news as Steve Cooper’s Reds prepare to face the Hatters at the City Ground on Saturday.
Despite Storm Babet wreaking havoc across the country, Nottingham Forest’s match against Luton Town is still slated to go ahead as planned.

The team is hopeful that Saturday’s Premier League encounter at the City Ground will not be canceled due to inclement weather. However, they are actively monitoring the situation and remain in communication with local authorities and Nottinghamshire Police.

As a result of the continuing heavy rain, a number of places in Nottinghamshire have been flooded. Several county highways have been closed, causing travel disruptions, with some bus diversions in place.

Saturday’s game between Steve Cooper’s Reds and the Hatters kicks off at 3 p.m. During the summer, the City Ground pitch was relaid and the drainage system was addressed, giving Forest hope that the game will go ahead.

Forest will be looking to get back on track against Luton Town. They went four games without a win before the international break, and their 0-0 tie at Crystal Palace was their second in a row.

“They have players who can make a difference in the way they play,” Cooper said of the Hatters. “It’s a game where everything needs to be at a really high level, as it always is in the Premier League.”

“We have to concentrate on ourselves. With everyone returning from international service and not having your typical preparation, we must ensure that we rapidly get back up to speed; there are no excuses. We want to get started right away in the game and make an impression.”
