When a seemingly all-conquering Forest went down 1-0 at Luton Town on Good Friday, Steve Cooper would have recognised that it represented a potential turning point for the club’s season.
However, to their credit, the East Midlands giants quickly shook off that disappointment three days later, starting strongly against West Bromwich Albion before prevailing by a 4-0 scoreline.
The goals were shared around the team, Sam Surridge capping his first 90 minutes in the Championship for Forest with his third goal, and it helped further strengthen the club’s goal difference in the event that they emerge as direct rivals to Bournemouth for second position.
Although they trail by seven points, this game takes place on the same day that the Cherries host already-promoted Fulham, and the two clubs are still to face each other before the end of the campaign.
That said, Forest have been far less clinical away from the City Ground with just two wins coming from their last six fixtures on their travels.
Both victories were eye-catching in their own right, although Reading registering four points over the same period has almost rendered the revival worthless in the short term.
Given their inferior goal difference, Posh will only remain in the Championship if they beat Forest, Millwall and Blackpool, with Reading claiming no more than one point from encounters with Hull City, West Bromwich Albion and Luton Town.
As well as conceding just three times in four matches, McCann will be delighted to see Jonson Clarke-Harris and Jack Marriott chip in with two goals apiece.
Joe Ward is a major doubt for Peterborough after the right wing-back needed to be withdrawn at half time against Barnsley.
Kwame Poku is on standby to come into the team after replacing his teammate, but further alterations are not expected given the level of performance at Oakwell.
McCann has suggested that Jorge Grant will likely remain out of contention after being sidelined for that fixture.
Having had the chance to rest players during the second half against West Brom, Forest boss Cooper may be prepared to name the same starting lineup.
