Ollie hoping for timely boost
Ian Holloway could be given a boost for Saturday's trip to Nottingham Forest with the return to the squad of Nicky Bailey (back), Lee Martin (knee) and Jermaine Easter (thigh).
The Lions travel to the City Ground knowing they need to win at least five of their remaining seven games to give themselves a chance of retaining their Championship status, but the manager believes that having three of his senior players available again would be welcome news.
He said: "We have been very unlucky with injuries to so many key players over recent weeks and it would be lovely to have a few more options on Saturday.
However, what I won't do is take a risk with a player that might lead to him having more problems further down the line. Nicky played 70 minutes for the U21s earlier in the week which was great, but he's been out for a long time so we have to assess him carefully.
But I am optimistic that I will be able to field a team on Saturday that will enable us to find that bit extra to start turning our performances into wins."
