The appointment of new managers are known to lead to instant improvements in many cases, and that has been no different since Forest replaced Chris Hughton with Cooper.
However, even after just two games, the former Swansea City head coach is seen as a major success, guiding Forest to four points against Millwall and Barnsley.
The East Midlands outfit have fought back on both occasions, Wednesday’s fixture at Oakwell seeing three goals scored during the closing half hour.
While Cooper will not move away from his back-three strategy in the long term, the switch to 4-2-3-1 paid off immediately with Philip Zinckernagel, Brennan Johnson and Lewis Grabban all getting on the scoresheet.
Forest now sit outside of the relegation zone for the first time this season, and Cooper will expect further progress against opponents who have alarmingly lost their way.Having netted as a substitute against Barnsley, Grabban is in contention for a recall to the Forest attack.

Alex Mighten is another option for Cooper, but the Forest boss is unlikely to hand starts to both of those players.Barring any late fitness issues, the remainder of the team should remain the same as Cooper looks to build momentum.
