Nottingham Forest have made two deadline day loans. Striker Billy Sharp has been brought in from Southampton and midfielder James Coppinger from Doncaster. Both players were at Doncaster when Forest manager Sean O'Driscoll managed there: Forest
Both players will be available for the match against Charlton this afternoon. Given that Forest were already known for the sharpness of their attack, this poses some tactical dilemmas for Chris Powell. Should he play cautiously and defensively or should he try to exploit apparent defensive weaknesses? I would expect him to go for a 4-4-2 and try to match Forest, but they may well be too strong for the Addicks.
