Mallik Wilks and Alex Mighten are both cup-tied for our Carabao Cup third round clash at Premier League Southampton this evening.
Wilks played for former club Hull in an earlier round at Bradford and Mighten was in the Forest team that knocked out Grimsby before he made his loan move to Hillsborough.
‘Cup keeper’ Cameron Dawson also misses out after suffering concussion in training last week and is having to sit out games for seven days under the protocols that now follow such injuries.
With promotion back to the Championship the priority this season and an important league game at Accrington to follow on Saturday, manager Darren Moore is also likely to name some squad players in his starting line-up.
First team coach Ruben Selles will be in charge of Southampton tonight following the sacking of manager Ralph Hassenhuttl at the weekend.
