Saturday's 3-1 win against Wolves propelled Billy Davies and his resurgent Reds into the top six after an incredible turnaround following the return of the Scot to the City Ground.
The Championship table at present looks to be a battle between Cardiff, Watford, Crystal Palace and Hull City for automatic promotion with six, possible seven teams looking to fill the remaining two play-off places.
Burnley would be that 7th team should they beat Hull on Monday night before Leicester City and Brighton, currently one point above and below Forest respectively, play on Tuesday.
The Foxes meet league leaders Cardiff while the Seagulls are also away, at Barnsley.
Leeds United remain the hunt and play their game in hand at home to Peterborough.
