Cohen missed the 1-0 win at Millwall on Saturday with a thigh strain and the versatile 26-year-old faces a race against time to be fit for the potential promotion showdown with East Midlands rivals Leicester at the City Ground at the weekend.

Reds boss Billy Davies told the club's official website: "Chris has a slight thigh strain and is touch-and-go for Saturday.

"I thought about putting him in (against Millwall) but if it ripped, he would be out for six or seven weeks.

"So we decided to rest him. There is a chance he might be back at the weekend."

Forest go into the game outside the play-off places on goal difference, level on points with Bolton and one point behind fifth-placed Crystal Palace.

Leicester must do something they have not done since 1972 and win a league match at the City Ground if they are to have any chance of finishing in the top six, and even a victory over Forest would leave them relying on results elsewhere to go in their favour.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
