On the back of Forest’s 2-0 victory over Huddersfield Town, Cooper would have had high hopes ahead of his opening game in charge of the East Midlands outfit.
Despite only claiming a 1-1 draw against Millwall, the newly-appointed manager will take the positives from his side fighting back to claim a share of the spoils.
The result keeps Forest in the relegation zone, still two points adrift of safety, but a fresh approach under Cooper has every chance of paying off in the long term.
However, with a tough run of fixtures scheduled for the end of October, there is pressure to take full advantage of a triple-header against Barnsley, Birmingham City and Blackpool.
Forest’s issues have not necessarily come away from the City Ground, with four points having been collected from their last two fixtures on the road.
Philip Zinckernagel and Alex Mighten may also start in the final third, taking the places of Joe Lolley and Brennan Johnson respectively.
Barring any late fitness issues, the defence and midfield should remain the same as Cooper looks to find some stability.
