James Coppinger said he has no regrets about his short-lived spell with Nottingham Forest and expects a tough game against Saturday’s opponents, writes Hayley Paterson.

Doncaster Rovers welcome local rivals Forest to the Keepmoat and will be keen to move on from Tuesday’s defeat to Watford - settled following a controversial penalty.

Billy Davies’ men have started strongly in the Championship this term with a win and a draw in their last two games seeing them in fifth.

Coppinger, who struggled to get first team football during his loan spell with Forest in 2012, said Rovers are going into the game with confidence.

“It’s going to be a difficult game, I spent five months there with Sean (O’Driscoll) and a lot of players are still there, they have got a good group but we’re going into the game with a bit of confidence from the last two games.”

On his time at Forest, he added: “It was good to experience different players, different coaches but it was frustrating not to play as much. But I have no regrets.”
