Despite a disappointing campaign Nottingham Forest still remain in with a shot of promotion, sat in ninth place but just four points behind Derby County who occupy the final spot in the play-off places.
This weekend sees them face a tough trip to Garry Monk’s Birmingham City at St. Andrews as both clubs look to make late bursts for the top-six.
And they polished off an impressive January transfer window on Friday with confirmation of a late deal.

The player in question was Udinese centre-back Molla Wague who joined on loan until the end of the season.
Wague has previously had spells with Watford and Leicester City in England so arrives at the City Ground with some knowledge of what he is letting himself in for.
The 27-year-old has also broken onto the international scene as well, making 28 appearances for Mali and scoring four goals as well.
But what did the fans make of his arrival?
This fella will pull up a few trees… absolute beast of a defender

You get the feeling O’Niel and Keane have had nothing to do with these recent signings! #NFFC
