Following the appointment of Ryan Lowe in December, Preston North End have taken impressive strides in the Championship, earning 20 points from their first 12 league games under the new boss.
In that time, the Lilywhites have picked up five victories while only suffering two defeats, although one of those losses did come at the weekend, as they hosted Reading after a six-game unbeaten run produced 12 points.
The Lancashire outfit had a nightmare start, as a Lucas Joao double gave the visitors an early lead, and, after John Swift made it 3-0, second-half goals from Daniel Johnson and Cameron Archer were not enough as they eventually succumbed to a 3-2 defeat.
With that causing a drop to 12th spot, Lowe’s men will now look to put a disappointing day behind them as they go in search of an immediate return to winning ways on home turf on Tuesday, although their visitors arrive in fine form of their own.
Preston North End remain without Greg Cunningham, Josh Murphy and Tom Barkhuizen due to injuries, while Lowe may look to shuffle his side after a defeat at the weekend.
Aston Villa youngster Cameron Archer has impressed since his loan arrival in January, netting four goals in his first seven appearances, and the 20-year-old should certainly keep his place alongside Emil Riis Jakobsen.
Ryan Ledson will be vying for a start in midfield, while Liam Lindsay will hope to disrupt the established back three of Andrew Hughes, Patrick Bauer and Sepp van den Berg.
Nottingham Forest will be without Brice Samba through suspension, after the goalkeeper’s red card against Stoke, although Joe Worrall will be free to command the back line with Ethan Horvath set to fill in between the sticks.
The captain should again line up in a back three with Steve Cook and Scott McKenna, while Ryan Yates will hope to earn a midfield spot after his goal last time out, although that would require Cooper to drop Jack Colback or Manchester United loanee James Garner.

Young attacker Brennan Johnson netted his ninth league goal of the season last time out, and he will again be a key man going forward.
