Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has no new injury concerns for the clash but may consider promoting Thomas Ince and Callum McManaman to his starting line-up.

Holloway made a triple substitution when the Seasiders were 1-0 down against Doncaster in midweek and the introduction of Ince, McManaman and Brett Ormerod turned the game in their favour.

Teenage forward Ince earned the praise of Holloway after scoring twice to snatch a 2-1 win and midfielder McManaman, making his debut after joining on a three-month loan from Wigan, also impressed.

Striker Lomana LuaLua will be hoping to make his first start since penning a deal with the club which runs until the end of the season.

Steve Cotterill has no new problems to contend with as he prepares for his first away game in charge of Forest.

Cotterill made a winning start as manager on Tuesday night, inflicting a first league defeat of the season to Middlesbrough. All of his players came through the 2-0 victory at the City Ground unscathed.

After watching from the stands at Coventry last Saturday, Cotterill made two changes in midweek. Joel Lynch and Radoslaw Majewski replaced Jonathan Greening and Matt Derbyshire in the starting line-up.

Cotterill must decide whether to stick with a winning team or make changes. Greening and Derbyshire will be hoping for recalls, while Brendan Moloney, Andy Reid and Robbie Findley are also options for the new boss.

Chris Cohen, Dexter Blackstock, Garath McCleary (all knee), Paul Anderson (hamstring) and George Boateng (ankle) remain on the sidelines.

Midfielder Boateng is close to a return to training while striker Blackstock is back in non-contact training after almost a year out.
