While Swansea supporters may be focusing on the return of their former boss, his replacement Russell Martin will only be interested in trying to end the club’s poor run of form.
Just four points have been collected from a possible 15, their sole victory during that period coming against a struggling Barnsley side.
Back-to-back defeats to Reading and Middlesbrough have left Swansea down in 14th position, albeit still 11 points above the relegation zone.
That should never be an issue for the Welsh club, but Martin is aware that his honeymoon period at the Swans is now over as he contemplates how to move last season’s playoff finalists back up the table.
Their fortunes are unlikely to change unless Jamie Paterson and Joel Piroe receive more help in the final third, the pair scoring all but seven of Swansea’s league goals this campaign.
Martin will likely make at least one change to his Swansea XI with Olivier Ntcham expected to come in for Korey Smith.
Joel Latibeaudiere and Ryan Bennett are alternatives in defence, while Jake Bidwell may return on the left-hand side.
As for Forest, Cooper could be prepared to stick with the starting lineup from the win over Peterborough.
While Cafu is an option if Braian Ojeda drops out of the team, the latter is favourite to get the nod in midfield.
