Steve Cooper takes his Nottingham Forest team to Luton Town today looking to make it six wins on a spin and close in on a record that stands for over 100 years.
If the Reds beat the Hatters in tomorrow’s game, they can equal the record for the most straight wins with another three points against West Brom on Monday.
Forest have climbed the table in recent weeks. They’ve gone from a decent outside bet for the play-offs to a side that are seen as genuine contenders to catch Bournemouth in second.
Ahead of today’s game, we looked at how Cooper could choose to line his team up at Kenilworth Road for today’s early kick-off.
The Forest rearguard
Brice Samba has re-established himself as the team’s regular goalkeeper after returning against Blackpool a fortnight ago. He will start at Luton.
The back three have kept two clean sheets on the spin and will undoubtedly all retain their places today.
Joe Worrall, Tobias Figueiredo and Scott McKenna will all play against Luton and the three have been formidable in recent weeks.
The Forest engine room and wing-backs
Ryan Yates and James Garner have been instrumental recently and they will both keep their places here.
Unfortunately, Max Lowe is some way off being fit and won’t be able to make a return at left wing-back.
Jack Colback will continue to deputise with Djed Spence playing on the right-hand side.
Leading the Forest line
Lewis Grabban and Sam Surridge are both champing at the bit to get a start in the Forest team.

At the minute, however, Keinan Davis is in possession of the shirt and doesn’t look like losing it any time soon.
Behind him, expect more of the same, with both Philip Zinckernagel and Brennan Johnson both set to start.
Here is how the Forest team might look this afternoon:
