Norwich captain Grant Holt has been rated at 50/50 to face his former club.

Holt made both goals in the 2-2 draw at Watford on Tuesday night but then limped down the tunnel at the end with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

The talisman will be given until the last minute to prove his fitness as Paul Lambert's side look for a win which would put them back in the automatic promotion places.

Midfielder Wes Hoolahan has been passed fit after two games out with a hamstring injury while Lambert's striking options could be boosted further by the inclusion of Chris Martin.

Martin has not played since injuring his hamstring in February but travelled to Vicarage Road in midweek and could be included.

Midfielder Korey Smith could also be involved after he missed out at Watford with an eye infection.

Nottingham Forest hope to have Nathan Tyson available for the crucial clash.

The forward missed out with a stiff back as Forest got their play-off challenge back on track with a first victory in 10 matches at home to Burnley in midweek.

David McGoldrick, who came off the bench to score both goals in the 2-0 win over the Clarets, is pushing for a starting role.

Boss Billy Davies must decide whether to stick with Brendan Moloney at right-back or recall Chris Gunter.

Paul Anderson is expected to miss out again as he continues to struggle with the rib problem he sustained against Leeds at the start of the month, while fellow midfielder Chris Cohen will complete a three-match ban.

Robbie Findley has resumed full training after an Achilles injury but the American striker will not be considered for this game.
