Nottingham Forest fan Stuart Broad has reacted to the club’s FA Cup draw with Chelsea and gave a bold prediction on the upcoming tie.
The Reds have been in superb form this season and find themselves sat fourth in the Championship table with boss Sabri Lamouchi looking to attempt a real promotion push.
With Forest hoping to push themselves into the Premier League, an interesting FA Cup draw with Frank Lampard’s Chelsea has been drawn.
The third round tie will take place on the 4th of January at Stamford Bridge and famed Forest fan and England cricketer Broad has given his match prediction.
Broad was commenting on a Twitter post from golfer Justin Rose and his reply offered a 93rd minute winner and a statement from Frank Lampard.

It will be the fourth time since 2000 that Chelsea and Forest have met each other in cup competition, having met in the FA Cup three times and once in the League Cup.
Forest have lost out in all four of those games with their last win against the Blues coming in the 1997/1998 Premier League campaign.

With the form that Nottingham Forest are currently in this season, this could be the year that they finally get something against Chelsea and what a fine test it could be for Sabri Lamouchi to test out his squad ahead of a potential Premier League promotion chase.
Frank Lampard’s intentions in the FA Cup could also play a part. Does the young English coach want to focus in the Premier League or win a domestic up during his first season.
