Championship: Bendtner awaits Arsenal clash

The draw for the third round pitted Bendtner's new team against his old employers at The City Ground and the Dane admits he is relishing the clash in front of what should be a near 30,000 crowd.

He said: "I'm really looking forward to what is going to be a great match in a sold-out stadium. I'm sure the Forest fans are going to create an incredible atmosphere and hopefully we can reward them with a result.
"We are underdogs tomorrow night and we know we will have to be at our best to stand a chance. We cannot be at anything less than 100 per cent but we know than in cup games anything can happen and upsets can be caused.
"It is important for us to be compact and to be tactically aware. We know if we press Arsenal then they can play around us so we have to be aware of the challenges. We’ll get chances during the game and then it’s up to us to take them."
