Nottingham Forest will check on Nathan Tyson.

Forward Tyson missed the two Easter weekend fixtures with a thigh problem.

While he could return to the squad, Paul Anderson looks likely to miss out again. The winger has already been absent for five matches with the rib injury he sustained at Leeds at the start of the month.

Left-back Paul Konchesky will play the final game of his loan spell from Liverpool.

Boss Billy Davies has options should he wish to make changes, with defenders Chris Gunter and Julian Bennett, midfielder Radoslaw Majewski and strikers David McGoldrick, Marcus Tudgay and Robbie Findley available for recalls.

Meanwhile, Joe Garner, on loan at Scunthorpe, is ineligible to face his parent club.

Scunthorpe boss Alan Knill could ring the changes with his side all-but relegated side.

Knill conceded defeat in his side's battle against relegation after Monday's 2-1 defeat to Millwall.

The Iron are six points adrift of fourth-bottom Doncaster with two games remaining, but with their goal difference inferior by 17.

Defender Andy Hughes will be assessed after missing the Millwall match. Eddie Nolan came in to start his first game in almost a month with Hughes struggling with a groin problem.

Defender Cliff Byrne and midfielder Garry Thompson remain sidelined but Knill has no other major concerns and could shuffle his pack as the Iron seek to put a dent in Forest's play-off bid.
