The Reds take on Sheffield United later this afternoon as the Easter schedule gets underway in the Sky Bet Championship.
With two games over four days, this is the perfect time to align yourself ready for a final push, but I think the Reds are going to fall short of the top six clearly now.
One silver lining for the remainder of the season comes via the Nottingham Post, though, with them reporting that Hillal Soudani is back in training and getting back to fitness.
We’ve not seen much of the striker this year thanks to injury woes but he might get the chance to feature before the campaign is up.
Providing he stays fit, too, he could still prove a decent forward for us, because his industry and work-rate in the final third are exemplary.
From what we have seen so far, though, we have to assume that fitness is a big ‘if.’
