Nottingham Forest take on Coventry City tonight knowing that a win could take them into the Championship play-off places.

The Reds have been coming up on the rails for some time now and it’s now a huge chance for Forest to make their move.

Saturday saw Steve Cooper’s team run out 4-1 winners over Blackpool and they will go into tonight’s game full of confidence.

Ahead of this evening’s clash, we looked at how the Reds could line up at the City Ground.

The Forest rearguard

Brice Samba returned to the Reds goal on Saturday and he didn’t do a lot wrong.

At the back, there will be no reason to make a change.

Steve Cook is still injured so Scott McKenna, Tobias Figueiredo and Joe Worrall should all start.

In the Forest engine room and at wing-back

Ryan Yates was brilliant at Blackpool and he should keep his place alongside James Garner in the middle of the park.

Likewise, Jack Colback will likely start on the left, with the impressive Djed Spence starting once again on the right.

Leading the Forest line

Forest could spring a change in attack, with Lewis Grabban now back from an ankle injury picked up in January.

That could see Keinan Davis drop to the bench for a well-deserved rest following a strong run of form.

There could be another change too, with Joe Lolley getting the chance to sparkle from the off in place of Philip Zinckernagel.

Brennan Johnson is Forest’s potential superstar and he will simply have to start.

Here is how today’s team could look:
