Nottingham Forest face Bristol City in the first of two fixtures in less than 48 hours
Derek McInnes saw his side slip into the relegation zone last weekend and must now galvanise his squad for six crucial games which includes a televised trip to the City Ground on Saturday evening.
He told his club's official website: "We are well aware of what's at stake and we don't need to keep being reminded."
For the Reds, Steve Cotterill has the right kind of selection problems as George Elokobi is available for selection alongside the team that triumphed in style at Crystal Palace.
The Forest boss told the official NFFC site: "Easter is nearly always a big weekend in the football calendar but in our case it could be pivotal."
