Soccer - Nottingham Forest V Notts County

Following the 10th anniversary of his death last Saturday, every single travelling Nottingham Forest fan will be able to pay tribute to Brian Clough at tonight’s Capital One Cup tie against Tottenham by wearing a replica of his famous green Umbro jumper.

Capital One, themselves a Nottingham-based comany, have distributed 1,000 green jumpers among fans who are planning to travel down to White Hart Lane on club transport.

The plan is for the away section at Spurs to be peppered with that iconic shade of green as the celebration of Clough’s life, career and legacy continues to roll on.

Personally, we can’t wait to see it. Hopefully the tribute won’t get lost among the throng at the Lane.
