Greg Cunningham is set to make his debut for Nottingham Forest.

Cunningham joined the Reds on loan from Manchester City this week and is expected to line up at left-back, where Chris Gunter deputised against Blackpool after Clint Hill was recalled by QPR.

Gunter could return to the right side of midfield - a role he occupied in Steve Cotterill's first game in charge against Middlesbrough 10 days ago - with Jonathan Greening, who played there against Blackpool, among the candidates to replace the suspended Guy Moussi in central midfield.

Moussi must serve a one-match ban after he was sent off for two bookable offences at Bloomfield Road.

Cotterill is looking to maintain his 100% start as manager after victories in his first two matches.

Hull manager Nigel Pearson is unlikely to risk throwing Martyn Waghorn back into the fray.

Waghorn, on loan from Leicester, has been struggling with a hamstring strain that has forced him to miss the last two matches and will not be rushed back.

Aaron Mclean partnered Matty Fryatt up front in last week's home win over Watford, while Dele Adebola, who appeared as a second-half substitute last week, provides Pearson with another option.

Player/coach Nick Barmby appears set to miss out again as he is nursing a calf problem, while winger Martin Pusic has been sidelined for the last two games with a hip complaint and is not ready to return.

Pearson has no new injury or suspension problems and is not expected to make too many changes as his side look to extend their unbeaten league run to nine matches.
