Nottingham Forest take on Leeds United this weekend as they look to get a big three points in the Sky Bet Championship promotion race.
The Reds and the Whites are the closest they’ve been in the league for a while as we head towards the weekend and the teams will be under no illusions that this a big game for both.
Indeed, with the likes of West Brom and Fulham both having tough away trips this weekend, too, now would be a good time to pick up a win but, ultimately, only one of the sides can triumph.
The Reds – despite what happened at Birmingham last weekend – go into the match in better form and will be pretty confident they can get a result, though, and Sabri Lamouchi picking up a Manager of the Month award has reflected their recent work:
A decent gong for him to pick up, though some Reds fans are worried about a jinx:

Thinking this is the first time that the Award has been collected by a team, not just the Manager. #nffc again setting a great example.
