STREAM HERE >>> Nottingham Forest vs Blackpool free stream online Championship League Full HD
How the mood at a football club can change. Nottingham Forest looked destined for an extended spell in the relegation zone when going down 2-0 at home to Middlesbrough on September 15.
Four matches later, three of them under new head coach Steve Cooper, and the East Midlands outfit now sit in 17th position, a result of three wins and a draw.
Cooper and his squad will certainly not be getting ahead of themselves at this stage, but their 3-0 demolition of Birmingham City before the international break bodes well for the future.
Despite his short period at the City Ground, Cooper has found a resolution to their lack of goals, and it has made all the difference with Forest still not conceding more than twice in a league game this season.
Lewis Grabban has netted three times in four outings, re-establishing himself as the first-choice forward ahead of Lyle Taylor
Barring any injury issues, Cooper is expected to stick with the Forest XI which breezed past Birmingham before the international break.
Midfielder James Garner has spent time away with England Under-21s, reducing his chances of earning an immediate recall to the team.
Blackpool will be forced into at least two changes with Chris Maxwell and Shayne Lavery both sidelined through injury.
Stuart Moore is in line to feature between the sticks, while Jerry Yates will expect to play in attack after netting off the substitutes’ bench versus Blackburn Rovers.
