Nottingham Forest will try and get back to winning ways this weekend when they face Hull City in the Championship.

The Reds were beaten 2-0 by Stoke City last week in a fairly abject display.

Martin O’Neill knows his team needs to start winning games quickly if they are to charge down the top-six.

Ahead of this weekend’s game, Seat Pitch looks at three keys towards Forest securing victory…

Halt a man in form

Jarrod Bowen is set to attract interest from the Premier League this summer.

The 22-year-old has netted 18 goals in the Championship this season and he must be stopped by Forest.

Capable of playing on either the wing or up front, the Reds must keep a close eye on this lively performer this weekend.

Forest have played their best football under Martin O’Neill when they have played on the front foot.

Against Brentford, Derby and West Brom, Forest have looked decent going forward and they must stick to those principals against Hull.

Forest have players such as Joe Lolley who can hurt defenders and getting him on the ball will be key again this weekend.

Against Derby County in the last home game, the City Ground was absolutely rocking.

The Reds’ faithful have backed Forest in their droves this season and are expected to do the same tomorrow.

It is vitally important that the Reds supporters crank up the volume tomorrow and make it as intimidating as possible for Hull.

If Forest can keep the City Ground noise up then three points are comfortably obtainable.
