Nottingham Forest will aim to move one step closer to ending 23 years of hurt when they host Sheffield United in the second leg of the Championship play-off semi-final on Tuesday evening, boasting a 2-1 lead from the first leg.
Not since 1998-99 have Forest played Premier League football but they will be just one game away providing they can maintain, or improve upon, the one-goal advantage they generated at Bramall Lane on Saturday.
Jack Colback and Brennan Johnson found the net in Sheffield to dismiss the notion that Steve Cooper’s men might have lost momentum heading into the play-offs by losing and drawing their final two games of the regular season, although Sander Berge’s injury-time goal has at least given the Blades a fighting chance at the City Ground.
History is on Forest’s side – with Leeds in 2019 the only team to ever win the first leg away from home but fail to reach the final in the second-tier play-offs – although with a place at Wembley on the line, anything can happen.
