Nottingham Forest could turn their season into a push for promotion this weekend with a victory in their bitter derby with Derby County, where a Forest victory would put Philippe Montanier’s side just one point behind their arch-nemesis.
Already six points off the top-six, Forest can’t afford to fall further behind this weekend and it makes the derby a must win clash.
Win the game and Forest can climb the table, with Montanier’s side showing their capabilities with a victory against league leaders Newcastle last week.
A similar result here will boost morale significantly and can get the faithful supporters at the City Ground dreaming of a return to the top-flight, whilst a defeat could be the start of another premature end to the season.
Fortunately, Montanier has plenty of talented players within his ranks and introducing these two members of his squad as substitutes could provide Forest with the trump card they require to emerge victorious this weekend.
