Championship Betting Odds: Cooper relishing crunch clash

Steve Cooper

Bournemouth (1/2 Top Two Finish) and Forest (9/4), who sit second and third respectively, are both vying for automatic promotion to the Premier League with two games left to play.

The Cherries are three points clear of Forest ahead of Tuesday’s 19:00 clash and it’s all on the line at the Vitality Stadium.

Forest boast a superior goal difference and will climb ahead of Scott Parker’s side with a victory after winning nine of their last 10 games in the Championship.

A win for Forest would allow them to control their own destiny going into their final fixture of the term at Hull on Saturday.

Cooper is attempting to lead Forest back to the top-flight for the first time since 1998-99 and he insists his side are raring to go for the key encounter.

“We are so looking forward to this game. We’re excited about it, we’re focused and we’re ready for it. It cannot come quick enough,” Cooper said.

“It doesn’t matter who we play, we want to play our way. We want to aim to be the best team and aim to do it our way. It doesn’t always work and we’ve had some lows as well, but the intent never changes.

“I see a really good focus, a really good engagement and a really calm feeling amongst the players, but it has been like that for a while. They do not seem to let complacency creep in which is very important to me.”
