Wonder if anyone can help, when i let my car roll, there seems to be a knocking noise coming from what seems like the driver side at the front, if i accelerate or beak it doesnt make the noise its only when i let the car roll?

sounds to me like it could be the top mount bearing at the top of the strut, or something is up with the arm on that side, possibly the anti-roll bar.

Is this easily fixed or expensive?

fairly easy to check out, just have a helper roll the car while you check all the joints in the suspesion on that side, including the top strut. cost depends on what you find really, but if i guess that changing the strut top bearing being the most expensive (because you're basically stripping the strut like you would if you were lowering it) then it shouldn't be that expensive, especially if you check it out yourself before handing the keys in to a garage.
