Despite six draws being recorded in Steve Cooper‘s first 12 games in charge of Forest, it kept his new side ticking over as they eased away from a relegation battle.
Within three months of sitting at the bottom of the table, Forest are now in contention for promotion, helped by 27 points coming from Cooper’s 14 matches in the dugout.
Although Forest supporters will not be getting carried away, they are the second-best team in the form table since Cooper’s arrival, also possessing the fourth-best defence.
Goals remain an issue but Forest were superb as they defeated Cooper’s former club Swansea City by a 4-1 scoreline last time out, the visitors netting three goals during a 20-minute period in South Wales.
The East Midlands outfit have now netted six times during the second halves of their most recent double-header, leaving Hull with much to ponder despite their own strong form.
Having been impressed with Ryan Yates‘s performance in the centre of defence against Swansea, Cooper may be prepared to stick with the same starting lineup.
Jordi Osei-Tutu should feature at left wing-back barring no issues after his comeback game last week, with the front three expected to stay the same after they all netted in Wales.
Despite the frustration of last weekend’s dropped points, McCann could also see little reason to make any unenforced alterations to his Hull team.
Tom Eaves and Tyler Smith are options in the final third if McCann opts to take a different approach at the City Ground.
Former Derby County midfielder Tom Huddlestone should remain among the replacements.
