Nottm. Forest prepare to entertain Coventry City at City Ground on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Forest are clearly on top, having won 24 and lost only 4 of the 37 games.

Nottingham Forest's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Forest have conceded a disappointing 10 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 2 of their own chances.
