Forest are 2-1 to the good after a hard-earned victory at Bramall Lane on Saturday.

Although, Sander Berge’s last-gasp strike kept United very much alive in the tie.

Nevertheless, the omens appear good for Steve Cooper’s side, who have won each of their last seven home matches – keeping five clean sheets along the way.

The Reds have also suffered just one defeat in 13 second-tier showdowns with United at the City Ground.

Meanwhile, you must go back to May 1993 for the last time they conceded more than once against the Yorkshire outfit on home soil.

Boasting just one win in seven away games, the Blades also have the unwanted record of eight play-off appearances without ever gaining promotion.

However, neither side possess a particularly spectacular play-off record. Forest have never won a home post-season match in four previous attempts, with United failing to do the same in eight such away games.

Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield United match stats

Brennan Johnson appears to be hitting form at the ideal time for Forest, netting in each of their last two matches.

Ironically, the only player to score in both legs of a play-off semi-final for the Reds is his father David, who did so against Sheffield United in the 2002-03 season.

Given the stakes and recent form book, both sides are likely to be cagey initially before going for it as the second leg goes on.

In fact, Forest have found the net in both halves of their last four home games, with United netting in the second half of their six most recent outings.
