Goodman, who played for West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland as well as for Wolves, has stated that Forest are still finding their feet this season.
“Forest look to me as if they are still finding their feet a little bit,” the 49-year-old said on Sky Sports on Thursday morning.
“Hopefully for (manager) Dougie (Freedman), the international break will have allowed him to do a lot of work with the players on the training ground, but I just think that the feel good factor around QPR and the momentum they have just started to build might just be a fraction too much for Forest."
Disappointing start for Nottingham Forest
Forest are expected by many to challenge for a top-six finish in the Championship this season, but their start to the campaign has been less than impressive.
Dougie Freedman’s side kicked off their 2015-16 campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion away from home in the league, before going down 4-3 to Walsall at the City Ground in the first round of the League Cup.
Forest returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Rotherham United at home in the league, but they then played out a goalless draw with Charlton Athletic at the City Ground.
A 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers away from home followed, and then came the 2-1 defeat to Cardiff City at the City Ground before the international break.
