Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has reported no new injuries.

The Reds' 10-match unbeaten league run ended with a surprise 1-0 defeat to struggling Scunthorpe in midweek.

Thigh injuries ruled out striker Robbie Findley and midfielder Guy Moussi at Glanford Park and both players will remain on the sidelines, along with Radoslaw Majewski, who is serving the second game of a three-match ban.

Should Davies wish to make changes, most of his options are in attack with Dele Adebola, David McGoldrick and Garath McCleary available for recalls.

Defender Joel Lynch and midfielder Paul Anderson were also on the bench against Scunthorpe.

Forest will once again be defending their proud unbeaten home record which spans 34 Championship games stretching back to September 2009.

Dave Jones is waiting on three unnamed players.

One of those is thought to be Michael Chopra after he came out of Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Burnley nursing a slight ankle knock but he should be okay, with full-back Paul Quinn potentially another concern although Jones rarely gives anything away.

Craig Bellamy is expected to return to City's starting line-up, most likely in place of Chris Burke.

The on-loan Manchester City man was rested to the bench for Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Burnley as City look to maximise his impact, subsequently coming on as a 67th-minute substitute.

But he will be called upon to spark his magic from the off at the City Ground as second meets fourth in a real heavyweight encounter in the battle to reach the Premier League.

Midfielder Aaron Ramsey will come up against Forest having only parted ways as recently as early January after his short loan spell, while in the Reds corner Robert Earnshaw - who scored more than 100 goals for the Bluebirds - and ex-Cardiff defender Chris Gunter will line up for Billy Davies' side.
