Nottingham Forest will be looking to make it three wins on the bounce for the first time this season, as they prepare to take on AFC Bournemouth at the City Ground.
The Reds recorded back-to-back away wins over Coventry City and Wycombe Wanderers last week, seeing them put further daylight between themselves and the bottom three.
Forest, who have put four points between themselves and 22nd, take on AFC Bournemouth this weekend – the start of a vital run of games for the Reds.
Bournemouth are currently fighting for promotion at the right end of the Championship table, but they come into this clash without a permanent manager in place.
Did these 15 former Nottingham Forest players leave for a higher or lower fee than they arrived for?
It still promises to be a tough test for Chris Hughton’s side, though, and he will know that his side have to perform much better than they did in the away fixture at the Vitality Stadium earlier this season.
Forest have no fresh injury concerns heading into this weekend’s clash, which will come as a relief for Hughton.
Midfield trio Samba Sow, Harry Arter and Ryan Yates will all miss out, with the latter set to return to training on Monday.
Scott McKenna is still a “couple of weeks” away from returning from an ankle problem, though, with the defender still unavailable.
Lewis Grabban was missing from the matchday squad in the win over Wycombe last time out, with Glenn Murray coming in and scoring a brace in his absence.
Grabban, as well as Sammy Ameobi, could be back in action this weekend, with late fitness calls having to be made on the pair.
Probable Forest XI (4-2-3-1): Samba; Christie, Worrall, Figueiredo, Bong; Garner, Cafu; Knockaert, Krovinovic, Freeman; Murray.
