Forest drew 1-1 with Derby County last time out and are one point behind Luton, who beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 on Saturday.
Forest's relegation fears have been eased in recent weeks thanks to a run of three games without defeat.
That includes back-to-back wins against Blackburn Rovers and Rotherham United without conceding prior to their draw with Derby.
The Reds were on course for a third victory on the spin thanks to James Garner's first goal in senior football, but East Midlands rivals Derby equalised late on to snatch a point.
Chris Hughton admitted his side's profligacy in front of goal ultimately cost them at Pride Park, but the draw does at least leave them 11 points above the relegation zone.
Indeed, Forest will now be looking up the division rather than down, with the gap on the top half standing at just three points ahead of this visit of Luton.
The Hatters are two places better off than their opponents following their comeback win at Wednesday - a game in which they trailed by two goals at half time before hitting back.
That was Luton's first win in four league matches, having previously drawn with Millwall after losing against Cardiff City and Stoke City.
Jones will now be looking to build some momentum, though Luton have lost nine of their 16 away games this term, which is the sixth worst record in the second tier.
Forest, though, have won just five of their 16 homes matches, which again ranks them among the worst teams in the division.

Ryan Yates missed the Derby match with a minor calf injury, but Hughton is hopeful the midfielder will be back available for the visit of Luton.
However, striker Lewis Grabban is still struggling with a hamstring injury and has yet to return to training, meaning that he will again play no part.
As for the visitors, Jones must surely be tempted to stick with the side that started the second half against Wednesday.
Adebayo has two goals and an assist in four games since joining Luton from Walsall in the January window and is expected to lead the line again here.
Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Samba; Christie, Worrall, Figueiredo, Bong; Garner, Cafu; Knockaert, Krovinovic, Freeman; Murray
Luton Town possible starting lineup:
Sluga; Pearson, Cranie, Potts; Clark, Tunnicliffe, Mpanzu, Dewsbury-Hall, Naismith, Cornick; Adebayo
We say: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Luton Town
The reverse meeting finished 1-1 in October and there has been very little between the sides all season, highlighted by the one-point gap between them heading into this match.
Forest have a pretty poor home record and Luton struggle for wins on their travels, so we are tipping this contest to finish all square.
