Nottingham Forest host Leeds United this weekend in what is arguably the headline act of the Sky Bet Championship fixture list this time out.
The Reds have been one of the sides that have managed to reel in the Whites and West Bromwich Albion at the top of the league and they now have a chance to really close the gap to the former with a win this weekend.
It’s a big game, then, and Forest fans will hope their overall form from January can continue – though their February kicked off with a loss at Birmingham.
Even so, Sabri Lamouchi and Joe Lolley have both been recognised for what was a strong month for both as they kicked off 2020 on the right footing:

Naturally, though, fans take this as a potential jinxing of form so let’s take a look at what has been said on social media in response to this news:
Please can someone at @NFFC ring up and refuse this. Thanks! As you were.
