Fabio Borini is poised to make his Swansea debut in the game after signing on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season on Thursday.

Borini's arrival gives Brendan Rodgers welcome options in attack, with the Swans winless in three games and desperate for victory against an out-of-form Forest side who are just three points below them in the table.

Indeed Rodgers may well have fresh options all over the pitch after centre-back and captain Garry Monk (knee) and midfielder Andrea Orlandi (thigh) made welcome returns to action on Tuesday after lengthy spells on the sidelines.

Monk played the entire 90 minutes of the club's reserve-team win at Plymouth while Orlandi managed 75 minutes, and both players are set to be in Rodgers' plans this weekend.

Forest will be without Robert Earnshaw after he limped out of the goalless home draw against Doncaster last weekend with a hamstring problem. Scans have revealed the damage is set to keep him out for up to a month.

Billy Davies has options to replace Earnshaw, with Dele Adebola, Nathan Tyson and Lewis McGugan all available for recalls.

Loan signing Kris Boyd is also pushing for his first start after making two substitute appearances following his arrival from Middlesbrough.

Paul Anderson could come back into the team should Davies wish to make changes in midfield.

Forest will be looking to strengthen their grip on a play-off spot and reignite their automatic promotion hopes after six games without a win.
