The Cherries have won back-to-back matches and are second in the division, while opponents Forest are down in 20th place after losing to Barnsley last time out.
Jason Tindall described his side's second-half display against Reading on Saturday as the "benchmark" if they are to earn promotion to the Premier League at the first attempt.
Bournemouth trailed 2-0 at the interval, but after some strong words from Tindall and some tactical tweaks, the South Coast side went on to win 4-2.
That victory follows on from a 3-1 success at Birmingham City prior to the international break and leaves the Cherries a point behind leaders Norwich City with 12 games played.
Chris Hughton has made a positive impact since taking over at the City Ground last month, winning three, drawing three and losing two of his eight games in charge.
The loss at Oakwell is a setback, though, and it means Forest have taken only one point from the last nine on offer away from home.
Bournemouth, by comparison, are six without defeat at home this term, while going further back they are unbeaten in 16 second-tier matches at the Vitality Stadium.
However, the Cherries have lost back-to-back matches with Forest, with those defeats coming home and away in the 2014-15 Championship season.
Bournemouth Championship form: DWDLWW
Nottingham Forest Championship form: DDLWWL
All three are likely to be absent again in midweek, which has somewhat limited Tindall's options when it comes to rotation.
After being brought on as a second-half substitute at the weekend, Luke Freeman is in contention to start this match.
Bournemouth possible starting lineup:
Begovic; Stacey, S.Cook, Kelly, Rico; Lerma, L.Cook, Stanislas; Brooks, Solanke, Danjuma
Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Samba; Christie, Figueiredo, McKenna, Ribeiro; Knockaert, Yates, Colback, Lolley; Guerrero; Taylor
We say: Bournemouth 2-1 Nottingham Forest
Only three teams have a worse away record than Forest in the Championship this season, while Bournemouth have taken more points at home than any other side.
The Cherries have momentum on their side and we expect to see them make it three wins in a row on Tuesday.
