Forest will check on Joel Lynch as they prepare to get their play-off challenge back on track.

Full-back Lynch failed to last the distance against Reading, limping out of Saturday's incredible 4-3 defeat after 66 minutes due to a thigh problem.

With Chris Cohen serving the second game of a three-match ban and Paul Anderson still receiving treatment for the rib injury he sustained against Leeds at the start of the month, boss Billy Davies will hope Paul McKenna can return to boost numbers in midfield.

Club captain McKenna could come back into the reckoning after a two-match absence with a groin problem.

Nine games without a win has seen Forest fall out of the play-off positions to eighth, four points adrift of a coveted top-six spot.

Burnley could be boosted by the return of Jack Cork for the trip to the East Midlands.

The on-loan Chelsea midfielder, 21, returned to Stamford Bridge to undergo medical tests after suffering heart palpitations while on England Under-21 duty against Iceland on March 28.

Cork subsequently missed Burnley's home defeat to Ipswich and the 4-0 reverse at Leicester.

However, he has returned to Turf Moor and trained with Eddie Howe's squad on Monday.

Goalkeeper Brian Jensen made his first start since October at the expense of Lee Grant on Saturday and will hope to keep his place.

Strikers Charlie Austin and Martin Paterson remain sidelined but midfielder Chris McCann is edging closer to a first-team return and left-back Danny Fox is available after a two-match ban.

Mail Box

Calling Carlo For Liverpool... Please

One Liverpool Mailer wants a manager who isn't starstruck by the job. Plus why Milner has now become overrated, play-offs for the title, Ronaldinho and democracy..

James Milner: Jose's Perfect Player?

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
