Things were looking bleak for Nottingham Forest at the end of October as a 2-0 loss against Reading condemned them to three straight league defeats and had them staring a relegation dogfight in the face.
But since then, Forest have picked up and are undefeated in four.
Nottingham Forest have won their last three games in the league, including a Friday night late victory over Champions-elect Newcastle United, which really showed they mean business.
They have rocketed away from the bottom three and up into thirteenth place in the league.
The mood in the camp is more optimistic and they will be aware that they now sit just six points off the play-off zone with form on their side.
And there’s no reason why Forest shouldn’t be competing for promotion with talented youngsters like Ben Osborn and Joe Worrall to complement experienced quality players such as Britt Assombalonga and Henri Lansbury.
Here are three “marquee” signings they should look at in January to fire them to a play-off spot.
