Nottingham Forest midfielder Andy Reid believes the Reds will be at their best by the turn of the year.
Forest currently sit ninth in the Championship table, three points adrift of the play-offs.
Reid told BBC Radio Nottingham: "I think that we will go on a good run up to Christmas and into the new year.
"I believe that coming up to Christmas and into January you will see the best of, not just the starting 11, but the best of the squad."
Reid, who has scored three goals for the Championship club this season, believes the depth in the Reds squad will be of benefit.
"When teams start to pick up injuries and suspensions and when we start to pick up them too, I think we will be able to deal with them particularly well," he added.
