Doncaster defender Shelton Martis will miss the home clash due to a groin injury.
Centre-half Martis was forced out of the action midway through the first half of the midweek defeat at Coventry, but Byron Webster returned to the bench on Tuesday following a long-term foot injury and could step in.
Mustapha Dumbuya replaced Martis at Coventry and manager Sean O'Driscoll could decide to keep him in a central defensive role alongside Adam Lockwood.
O'Driscoll has no other new injury or suspension problems, but defenders James Chambers and Wayne Thomas both remain sidelined due to respective knee injuries.
Rovers have lost successive away fixtures, at QPR and Coventry, and will be chasing their first win in four league matches.
Forest boss Billy Davies could make changes for the trip.
The Scot has no new problems following the home draw against Sheffield United in midweek - striker Robert Earnshaw (thigh) remains the only absentee.
Following the game against the Blades, Davies revealed he had been tempted to tinker with his side. However, he opted to stick with the team that defeated Swansea just three days earlier.
Nathan Tyson recovered from the virus that kept him out against the Swans to make a second-half substitute appearance on Tuesday night and is one of those in the frame for a recall, along with fit-again Kelvin Wilson, Radoslaw Majewski, Garath McCleary and Dele Adebola.
David McGoldrick has recovered from shoulder surgery and has been on the bench for the last two matches, making a 75th-minute appearance against Swansea. However, it could still be too soon for the striker to be considered for a starting role.
