Saturday team news
With Shane Lowry, serving the third of his three match suspension, joined on the sidelines by Danny Shittu, ruled out for one game following two yellow cards on Tuesday night, Kenny Jackett hopes to welcome back Adam Smith after a stomach bug.Karleigh Osborne looks set to partner Mark Beevers in central defence with Smith an option to come in at left back, although Scott Malone is an alternative.
Liam Trotter (knee) and Sean St Ledger (ankle) remain very doubtful whilst Chris Taylor is unlikely to feature again this season.
John Marquis was on target for the U21s on Monday and along with Dany N'Guessan will be hoping for a recall to the squad should the Lions' boss wish to freshen up his attacking options.
Liam Feeney, who came off with cramp against Blackburn, should be fit.
For Forest Gonzalo Jara Reyes has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
Sam Hutchinson limped off against Barnsley and if not fit it could pave the way for Dan Harding to return to the reckoning – he is yet to feature under Billy Davies.
Darius Henderson will miss out on a return as he completes a three-match ban. Irish winger Stephen McLaughlin has picked up valuable minutes in recent Under 21s matches after recovering from an ankle problem, and could be drafted in.
