What made Cardiff’s recovery at Stoke all the more incredible is the fact that they had entered the game on an eight-game losing run, failing to score in seven of those.
Their winless run may still span close to two months, and they are still only three points above the dropzone, but Saturday’s result may just prove to be a turning point for City.
Steve Morison oversaw the six-goal draw at the bet365 Stadium and will remain in charge for the visit of QPR as the Welsh side continue their search for Mick McCarthy‘s successor.
The ex-Wales international may yet be in the running for the job himself, and he will strengthen his job prospects should he inspire Cardiff to a first home win since August 21.
As is often the case when someone new takes over – albeit on an interim basis – Morison made mass changes for his first game in charge.
Curtis Nelson was restored in the heart of defence, while Perry Ng and Ryan Giles were selected at wing-back. There was also a first senior start for young Kieron Evans.
Morison will not make as many changes for this match, though Mark Harris is an option to come in after inspiring the three-goal comeback at Stoke.
Elsewhere, Marlon Pack has served a suspension and could slot back into central midfield, which would in turn see Leandro Bacuna drop back to the bench.
As for the visitors, Warburton recalled skipper Stefan Johansen, Albert Adomah, Sam McCallum and Andre Dozzell against Forest with mixed success.

The Rs were dealt a couple of injury blows in that most recent match as McCallum and Jordy de Wijs left the field in the first half.
Jimmy Dunne and Moses Odubajo are the most likely options to slot into the side for this trip to South Wales should neither recover in time.
