Nottingham Forest host promoted-side Blackpool at the City Ground on Saturday, looking to extend their unbeaten run in the EFL Championship to five games.
The Tricky Trees have managed to put some daylight between them and the relegation zone, sitting in 17th place with 11 points, three clear of Barnsley.
This upturn in form can be credited to the arrival of Steve Cooper, who has done a good job at the helm so far.
He's won twice and drawn once from his first three games and will be hoping to continue his unbeaten start as the club's new manager.
Their rivals from Lancashire, too, are currently on a four-game unbeaten streak, with forward Shayne Lavery scoring in each of their last three to emerge as their talisman.
