Nottingham Forest head coach Steve Cooper is developing a tradition at the City Ground that is going down a storm among the fan base.

The Reds defeated Fulham 1-0 on Tuesday night to maintain their push towards automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Philip Zinckernagel scored the only goal of the game after 15 minutes; with the Reds defending resolutely for the rest of the game.

The head coach is striking the chords with the Forest faithful. His three fist pumps towards the supporters have become customary following each win the Reds claim.

Cooper is a likeable man and an exceptionally gifted coach. He has only been at the club a matter of months and has claimed 72 points during his time at Forest.

On Tuesday, Cooper got really excited. Not even a police barricade could stop him from performing his trademark celebration in front of the travelling fans.

Some footage has emerged from Craven Cottage that makes for sensational viewing; with Cooper going absolutely crazy at the final whistle.

The Reds go into Saturday’s game with Swansea knowing that a win would set up a ridiculously tense game with Bournemouth on Tuesday night.

Cooper can achieve greatness at Nottingham Forest

The head coach is on the cusp of doing something that no Forest manager has done for many years by winning promotion.

If Forest win their final three matches of the campaign then there’s a fairly strong possibility they will be promoted in second.

Cooper has revived the football club and the mood among supporters has been lifted considerably.

Fans look forward to hearing Depeche Mode over the sound system and Cooper fist pumping all four corners of the ground at home.

The Welshman can do no wrong among the Forest fan base. If he takes the team up; he will be etched into Forest folklore forever.
