Having suffered just one defeat in 10 Championship fixtures during 2022, Forest can count themselves unlucky to be sitting down in ninth, but their current standing should only provide Steve Cooper‘s side with more motivation.
Although three of their last five matches have ended in draws, they salvaged the situation with last-gasp equalisers in two of those outings, potential difference-makers come the end of the campaign.
Nevertheless, Cooper was aware that Forest desperately needed a clinical performance against Reading at the weekend, and it was delivered with a ruthlessness which they could do with showing on a regular basis.
Keinan Davis scored after just 17 seconds, setting the ball rolling for a 4-0 success, and the Aston Villa loanee has now netted four times in 10 Championship games since his January arrival.
Just as important, Forest kept their fourth clean sheet in six league games, while they are also now unbeaten in their last eight home fixtures in all competitions
However, a penalty from Andre Gray and a late goal from defender Rob Dickie secured a fine comeback victory, moving the Hoops back above their opponents on Sunday.
With nine points separating fourth and 14th position, QPR need a winning streak over results every so often, but they have at least eased the pressure as they bid to earn back-to-back triumphs for the first time since the middle of January.
Cooper will likely have to make at least two changes to his Forest XI after Steve Cook and Max Lowe suffered ankle and groin injuries against Reading.
The reshuffle is expected to lead to Ryan Yates dropping into the back three, Jack Colback switching to left wing-back and James Garner featuring a deeper role in midfield.
Cooper will hope that Philip Zinckernagel has recovered from illness to take his place behind a front two of Brennan Johnson and Davis.
While Dion Sanderson is available again after suspension, Warburton is unlikely to tinker with his QPR defence for this contest.
