Andy Cook is hoping his side can learn from their previous test with West Bromwich Albion on Sunday as Nottingham Forest welcome The Baggies to Eastwood Community Football Club.
Speaking ahead of the match, Cook said: “It’ll absolutely be another tough game as I know Louis will have his squad prepared well for the match.
“We’re ready for a tough battle and we can work on bits that we learnt from the fixture at the start of the season against them but we’ve just got to make sure we’re ready and doing our jobs.”
The Reds were set to take on Burnley away from home last Sunday but the weather caused havoc and the game was postponed which left Cook frustrated.
“It’s something that we always get frustrated with as we’ve trained for that game, we’ve selected our team and let the player’s know if they’re in or out just for it to not go ahead,” he explained.
“Our bus was all ready to set off at The City Ground when it was called off in the morning but it’s something that just can’t be helped but now it’s just another game for us to focus on in 2021.”
This Sunday’s match will be Forest’s final game of 2020 and Cook is looking for the team to pick up a positive result heading into the New Year.
He said: “We’ve always said that we take one game at a time and the last few of our results have not been great.
“So, we’re happy to be getting a fixture in at the end of the year to put right the wrongs and to finish the year on the best possible foot.”
