Monday 30 March – 1 April 1970 – Forest Win Streak Ends With Draw
Nottingham Forest could only muster a draw at home with Manchester United, pushing them a point ahead of Sunderland who will play their postponed match against Leed in late April. Forest’s 16 game win streak is now over.
Forest have WBA away and Coventry at home, surely two games they can win, while Sunderland have the more difficult games with Manchester City away, Liverpool at home and Leeds away. Perhaps Forest have done enough to win the Championship.
In the relegation mud fight it’s Ipswich, Stoke and Coventry who have to fight to survive.
