After losing their first four league games of the season, Forest fans probably would have taken 17th at this current time, with an experienced manager now at the helm. They currently sit eight points above the relegation zone, although Rotherham United currently have three games in hand over the East Midlands side.
But they are five points away from 21st placed Birmingham City. All they need to do now is to secure a few more wins and reach that magic 50 point mark to all but guarantee their survival.
Their main rivals, Derby County, are also struggling. Wayne Rooney’s side currently sit two points behind Forest with a game in hand. Surely this gives Forest an extra incentive to grab a few more wins and pull away from the Rams? They may have to go into battle today without former Royal Lewis Grabban.
Itlooks like we will have a 50:50 chance of seeing him – but Hughton will not want to take any chances with a reliable goalscorer. Scott McKenna and Harry Arter are also closing in on a return but may not make it back in time for this weekend’s game.
