Having bought himself a bit more time in the City Ground dugout, Forest head coach Steve Cooper seeks a major scalp over us in Friday's Premier League clash. The Tricky Trees ended their losing streak by battling to a 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out, while we returned to winning ways in a 4-1 crushing of Newcastle United.

Spurs
One of two City Ground contests in which Forest drew a blank was against us in August 2022, where we were able to triumph 2-0 after taking the lead, which was not the case in our five Premier League contests before the weekend's visit of Newcastle.

Also suffering midweek misery at the hands of West Ham United, we went from breaking the right records at the start of the season to making unwanted history, as we became the first team to score first in five successive Premier League games but fail to win any of them.

However, such frailties did not come to the fore during Sunday's clash with another injury-riddled outfit in Newcastle, who succumbed to a Richarlison’s brace, Udogies first Spurs goal and Son's 10th strike of the season from the penalty spot before Joelinton at least managed to wipe out our shut-out.

Reverting to type after a nightmarish few weeks, We remain Champions League outsiders in fifth place but have the chance to draw level on points with Manchester City by overcoming Nottingham Forest, although Joelinton's late consolation at the weekend made it seven games without a clean sheet for us.

Only three of our 12 Premier League games played on a Friday have ended in victory too, but we did the double over Nottingham Forest in the 2022-23 Premier League season by an aggregate score of 5-1, albeit while being dumped out of the EFL Cup by Cooper's charges in the third round.


Forest
One of several names to have been linked with our Managerial vacancy before Ange signed on the dotted line, Forest head coach Cooper was expected to become the Premier League's second managerial casualty of the season with a dissatisfactory result at Molineux over the weekend.

Tricky Trees owner Evangelos Marinakis elected not to pull the trigger in the wake of their midweek horror show against Fulham, where the Forest faithful continued to chant Cooper's name in a 5-0 demolition, and his decision was partially justified as Friday's hosts returned home with a creditable share of the spoils.

Making an abundance of changes from the side that were dismantled at Craven Cottage, Cooper witnessed Harry TRoffolo head home the opening goal inside 14 minutes, and while Matheus Cunha’s response denied the visitors a precious victory, the improvement from their midweek mauling was stark.

Having avoided a potentially fatal fifth-straight defeat, Cooper leads Forest into their Friday fixture with the Tricky Trees occupying 16th place in the Premier League, safely five points clear of Luton Town in 18th place and within touching distance of an out-of-sorts Crystal Palace.


However, after stringing together an eight-game unbeaten run at the City Ground between April and November, Forest have suffered back-to-back home defeats in the Premier League to Brighton & Hove Albion and Everton; a 1-0 loss to the latter marked just their third scoreless top-flight home game since the start of last season.
