Nottingham Forest are 90 minutes away from their first appearance at Wembley since 1992 when they take on Sheffield United at the City Ground this week.

Forest are one of only seven teams across the top four divisions who are yet to play a game at the new Wembley and boss Steve Cooper will be determined to be the man who leads them there.

Cooper's men marched to a 2-0 lead in the first leg despite happily surrendering possession to the home side for large spells of the game. However, Sheffield United's Sander Berge nicked a last-minute goal to keep his side in the mix.

Berge's strike could prove crucial in the second leg. Had United entered this one 2-0 down in a bear-pit atmosphere in Nottingham, the odds would have been stacked against them, but the complexion of the tie changed in that moment.

Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom has won plenty of fans to his cause over the course of the 2021/22 season but there is pressure on his shoulders to make the most of his side's play-off appearance.

Our prediction: Nottingham Forest v Sheffield United

Nottingham Forest fans have experienced more than a fair share of spectacular collapses in recent years, so none of them will take this lead for granted going into the second leg.

Remaining members of the 2020 team that occupied a place in the top six from Boxing Day before losing to Swansea on the final day, blowing a three-point lead and five-goal swing to drop out of the top six, will be determined to stop history from repeating itself.

The opposing Swansea manager on that day? Steve Cooper. He is one of the most talented bosses at this level and has a point to prove in the top flight.

Our prediction: Nottingham Forest 2-1 Sheffield United (17/2 at bet365)
