Nottingham Forest head coach Sabri Lamouchi said that his side must follow up their victory over Hull with another against Wigan on Sunday.
The Reds returned to winning ways on Boxing Day and Lamouchi wants to see another good performance and result in front of a sold-out City Ground.
He said: “We have a game to play, two tough games. We obviously enjoyed the win against Hull as to win there is not easy and we did it.
“Now we have Wigan at home and until now, we have never played one easy game. I know Sunday will not be easy but we must play in our way with our quality in front of our fans.
“The Hull game was just one victory. After the QPR victory, we lost at home to Cardiff. We have lost a lot of points in the last five games and on Sunday, with our fans at a sold-out stadium, we have to confirm that we are back.”
Samba Sow left the pitch with a knock against Hull but Lamouchi hopes to have the combative midfielder available for the clash with The Latics.
“I don’t think it is serious,” he said. “It was just a kick but we will check for Sunday. He could not play on in the game on Boxing Day but we will check for Wigan.
“I have a good squad with good guys, they are working hard so I do not have any problem to change players.”
