The Reds conceded in the 87th minute after dominating the game in large spells, and Saturday's game is a great chance to bounce straight back.
Forest dropped to 18th after just their second defeat in their last 12 games, but still remain five points clear of the drop zone. Meanwhile, opponents Blackburn sit in 12th 10 points off the top six.
After a great team performance in midweek, it is likely Forest manager Chris Hughton will stick with the same 11 that played in South Wales.
The Reds remain without midfield trio Ryan Yates, Samba Sow and Harry Arter with injuries preventing them from being involved at the City Ground.
Winger Sammy Ameobi is edging closer to a return after a knee problem but isn't fit enough for this weekend.
Rovers will be without Lewis Holtby, Daniel Ayala and Bradley Johnson as they continue their comebacks from injury.
Boss Mowbray could recall right-back Ryan Nyambe for the trip to Nottingham this weekend, after being left out of the midweek defeat.
Nottingham Forest (4-2-3-1):
Samba; Christie, Figueiredo, Worrall, Ribeiro, Cafu, Garner, Knockaert, Krovinovic, Lolley, Grabban.
Blackburn Rovers (4-2-3-1):
Kaminski; Nyambe, Branthwaite, Lenihan, Douglas, Rothwell, Travis, Elliott, Dack, Gallagher, Armstrong.
Ones to watch
Filip Krovinovic - Nottingham Forest
After joining on loan from Benfica in January, the Croatian midfielder has instantly become a fan favourite. Creativity in the middle of the park is what the Reds were lacking and the 25-year-old has brought that in an abundance.
He always looks to play the forward pass, which is what Forest were really lacking. He can play the ball through the eye of a needle and will rarely misplace a pass. His ability will hopefully be the key to unlocking the Blackburn defence on Saturday.
Adam Armstrong - Blackburn Rovers
If it wasn't for Adam Armstrong Blackburn would be in a much more unhealthy position. His 19 league goals this season is 15 more than any other players in the Rovers squad.
Armstrong is the second top scorer in the Championship this season, behind runaway top scorer Ivan Toney. This season he has been a breakthrough year for the Newcastle United academy product and if he continues in this manner he could be set for a move to the Premier League.
The last meeting was earlier on in the season, with Chris Hughton winning his first game in charge at Ewood Park thanks to a goal from Joe Lolley. In the last five meetings, Forest have won twice, drawing another two and losing just once. The last encounter at the City Ground ended in a 3-2 win for Forest with Lewis Grabban and Joe Lolley scoring the goals for Forest.
