One to watch – Garath McCleary


The ex-Forest man is leading the way in terms of assists at the Madejski this season with five to his name.

Also noted for his goalscoring ability, McCleary, who was crowned as Forest’s Player of the Season in May 2012 before joining the Royals, has notched one goal so far this term in his side’s 4-1 win over Doncaster last month.
