Nottingham Forest face Fulham on Friday night and the Reds have to believe they can win the final game before the international break.

The City Ground was stunned last time out as Bournemouth came from 2-0 down to claim a 3-2 victory over the Reds.

Steve Cooper’s team were booed off by a small section of supporters and Forest must now right a few wrongs.

Ahead of their latest clash, some training photos have been doing the rounds and naturally, supporters like to scan those with intrigue.

Following the snaps being uploaded we took a look at three things we spotted from the training ground.

Now, the club are hardly going to snap players looking miserably but at the same time, the morale does appear to be good in the camp.

There is one image in particular where Cheikhou Kouyate is beaming at the camera as he takes a break from the day’s training.

Otherwise, it would appear that there are smiles all around the dressing room and it would appear the team are focused on improving their fortunes.

Yellow bibs against white bibs

Now, this really is an intriguing subject among the Forest fan base.

Many are convinced that the team wearing yellow bibs when the team plays 11v11 in training are the chosen players for the next game.

If that is the case, there could be some changes for the Fulham game.

Taiwo Awoniyi, Brennan Johnson, Morgan Gibbs-White and perhaps crucially Orel Mangala were all spotted in yellow.

Jesse Lingard, Remo Freuler and Lewis O’Brien were all wearing white.

There is no exact science to this and four central defenders were seen wearing yellow in various photos.

Still, it’s nice for some fans to speculate and it will be interesting to see if there is a pattern when the team is announced.

Arguably the lowlight of the 2022/23 campaign so far has been losing the big Frenchman.

He made a steady debut against Newcastle and was then brilliant against West Ham before injury forced him out of the action.

It’s a shame that he’s not been seen since and Forest have dearly missed him.

The £13 million man will hope to return to full fitness after the international break with his hamstring injury worse than first feared.

Getting him on the pitch looks vitally important and Forest fans will hope he can return soon.
