Nottingham Forest beat Coventry City 2-0 last night to make it four wins in succession in the Championship for the Reds.

Now, there is a real belief among the Forest ranks and a long-standing 100-year record could be in the sights of the current crop.

Since Forest salvaged a last-gasp draw against Sheffield United in early March, the Reds haven’t dropped a single point.

Reading and QPR were despatched with relative ease at home, whilst Saturday saw Forest dismantle Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

One Player Your Club MUST Sell This Summer (2022)

Last night, Forest were handed a tough assignment by Coventry but ultimately the Reds came through with flying colours once more.

Now, a record from 1922 could be about to creep onto the radar and get fans seriously excited.

Bob Masters was the manager back then as he oversaw seven straight league wins. The record hasn’t been beaten since.

Striker Charlie Flood was the man banging them in back then. At the time he was a year older than Brennan Johnson is now.

The club had some fine players back then and their seven straight wins will have delighted the fan base.

Forest could equal the record on Easter Monday. Before then they must negotiate wins over Birmingham on Saturday and on Good Friday at Luton.

If the Reds can achieve that it would put them firmly in the mix for a top-six finish and the top two might be in their sights.

Forest bring pride back to the city of Nottingham

Had Forest kept Chris Hughton the talk might be towards the wrong sort of record being set.

The club were going nowhere fast and last season was one of the blandest, predictable and mind-numbingly boring seasons in recent memories.

The work done by Steve Cooper in such a short space of time has been nothing short of magnificent.

He hasn’t just revived the club’s fortunes on the pitch but he’s lifted the spirits of the whole community.

This season has the potential to be very special for Forest and if the wins keep rolling the long-standing record could eclipsed.
