The 21-year-old, signed on a six-month loan deal from Chelsea on Thursday, is likely to go straight into the starting line-up and solve Forest's problematic left-back slot.

With Julian Bennett still not match-fit following 20 months out with a career-threatening knee injury, midfielder Chris Cohen was poised to fill in at left-back at Turf Moor.

Boss Billy Davies has several minor injury worries but the Scot hopes key defenders Wes Morgan and Kelvin Wilson, captain Paul McKenna and fellow midfielder Paul Anderson and striker Dexter Blackstock will all be fit.

David McGoldrick will be a definite absentee after the striker suffered a shoulder injury in a freak accident last month.
