Regardless of their side having put together a six-match unbeaten streak of late, Forest supporters are frustrated with five of those games ending in low-scoring draws.
While only positives should be taken from a goalless stalemate at West Bromwich Albion last time out, the result was a continuation of consistently poor efforts in the final third.
Although Steve Cooper will point to conceding just three times in six games as a reason to be optimistic, they have reached a stage where he desperately requires a victory to turn the tide in his team’s favour.
As many as 266 minutes have passed by since Philip Zinckernagel’s early effort at Reading, leaving Cooper with little choice put to throw caution to the wind at the weekend.
Despite Forest possessing the third-worst home record in the division, eight points and just one defeat have been posted from their last six matches at the City Ground.
Peterborough have recently handed Darren Ferguson a long-term contract, an indication that they plan to stick with the current boss regardless of their fate this season.
However, Posh find themselves on a six-match winless streak and having not found the back of the net for 366 minutes in the second tier.

Even a point at home to relegation rivals Barnsley last weekend could not be perceived to be a positive, and the pressure is building as they bid to stay in contention with the clubs above them.
Since a potentially-pivotal 2-1 win away at Hull City on October 20, Peterborough have lost three successive away games, failing to score and conceding nine goals at the other end.
In total, they have now shipped 28 strikes in 10 matches on their travels, eight more than any other team in the division.Nottingham Forest Championship
