When Forest managed to attract Steve Cooper to the City Ground, the club’s hierarchy and fans knew that they had pulled off a coup given his previous efforts at Swansea City.
However, few would have anticipated such a turn around in form, Forest moving from relegation candidates to promotion contenders within the space of 15 games.
Over that period, Forest have accumulated the most points of any team in the division, their only defeat coming to leaders Fulham and their eighth win being earned against Hull City last weekend.
The East Midlands outfit had to come from behind to claim a 2-1 victory over the Tigers, their equaliser being fortunate having been awarded a debatable penalty decision.
Nevertheless, Forest rallied to claim a winner and then saw off a strong finish from their opponents, only increasing the belief within this group that they can end the club’s long wait for a return to the Premier League.
Wilder has revealed that versatile Middlesbrough player Marc Bola faces at least six weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury.
With Neil Taylor impressing on his first start for the club, Boro could line up with the same team which started against Bournemouth.
Despite Forest’s victory over Hull, Cooper will likely make changes to his squad courtesy of injuries to Jordi Osei-Tutu and Alex Mighten.
Gaeten Bong and Jack Colback are both options at left wing-back, with a switch for the latter potentially resulting in a recall for Cafu.
Mighten was injured after initially coming on as a substitute, meaning that the remainder of the first XI could stay the same.
