Nottingham Forest will go in search of a fourth win on the spin tonight when they travel to Bristol City.

Steve Cooper has transformed the fortunes of the team, although he will know that there is still work to do.

Forest defeated Blackpool 2-1 at the weekend, with Brennan Johnson and Lewis Grabban both scoring for the Reds.

It’s an exciting time to be watching Forest just now and positivity is rife around the City Ground.

Ahead of tonight’s game, we looked at the line-up that Cooper might call upon.

All three defenders have been magnificent since coming into the club too.

Scott McKenna, Tobias Figueiredo and Joe Worrall should all keep their places in the starting line-up tonight.

Wing backs and midfield

Max Lowe and Djed Spence will pick themselves. The pair of wing-backs have been quality since arriving from Sheffield United and Middlesbrough respectively.

Ryan Yates has also been brilliant since Cooper arrived. He will almost certainly keep his place in the starting eleven.

There could be a change next to him though, with on-loan Manchester United man James Garner coming into the team.

Jack Colback could be in line for a rest and this might be an ideal game to play Garner.

In attack

Lewis Grabban is one goal short of his total for the entire 2020/21 campaign. He looks likely to spearhead the Forest attack once more.

Brennan Johnson and Philip Zinckernagel were both good on Saturday and should keep their places in free roles just behind Grabban.
