Lucky 13: Can Nottingham Forest's run continue?

12 February 2016

Nottingham Forest possess The Football League's longest unbeaten stretch heading into the weekend having not tasted defeat since 21st November.

Dougie Freedman's men have been quietly going about their business in the Championship but have strung together six wins and seven draws to go 13 matches undefeated.

Nottingham Forest – 13 unbeaten

28th Nov: Forest 3-1 Reading
5th Dec: Forest 3-0 Fulham
11th Dec: Wolves 1-1 Forest
14th Dec: Blackburn 0-0 Forest
19th Dec: Forest 2-1 MK Dons
27th Dec: Forest 1-1 Leeds
29th Dec: Cardiff 1-1 Forest
2nd Jan: Charlton 1-1 Forest
12th Jan: Forest 1-1 Birmingham
16th Jan: Forest 3-0 Bolton
23rd Jan: Middlesbrough 0-1 Forest
26th Jan: Forest 0-0 QPR
6th Feb: Leeds 0-1 Forest

That sequence, which is their best since a 14-game unbeaten run from December 2013 to February 2014, has lifted them up to 10th in the standings, eight points off a Play-Off berth.

In comparison, Sky Bet League 1's longest unbeaten stretch is currently held by Wigan Athletic (nine games), while Northampton Town possess the honours in Sky Bet League 2 (six matches).

Talisman: Nelson Oliveira was the man on target in Forest's victory over Leeds last time out. He has scored seven times in his last 15 appearances, and Freedman's side are unbeaten in all seven games he has scored in (W6, D1).

Forest go up against 17th-placed Huddersfield this weekend at the City Ground, where they haven't suffered a defeat since 3rd October.
