Football (soccer) roundup

Nottingham Forest seem to be having a good stretch at this part of the season. Their latest victory over promotion and East Midlands rivals Leicester City leave them in 3rd position. Plenty of season to go, but it looks like the squad is coming together. The prospect of Premiership football again at the City Ground awakes memories of former glory, but should they go up this season, survival woud be a miracle next!

Meanwhile, Morecambe FC continue to move up the League 2 table. 6 wins in a row, thanks to the goalscoring of Phil Jevons and 4 recent clean sheets, has seen them move out of the danger zone and towards the play-offs. League 1 football would make a nice opening for their new Westgate ground which they move to next year, but still a long way to go.

Nearby local rivals Lancaster City are finally enjoying some modest success after a period of turmoil and slipping down 2 leagues. Currently 3rd in the Unibond League First Division North, they have 5 games in hand over the team at the top. Should be enough to see them climb further!
