Fernando Forestieri is set to return for Wednesday’s trip to Forest on Saturday.
The leading scorer has missed our last two games through suspension after being wrongly sent off at Hull but is expected to be back in the starting line-up for the City Ground clash.
Carlos Carvalhal has to decide whether to rotate his full backs again, after bringing in Liam Palmer and Joe Bennett in place of Jack Hunt and Daniel Pudil at Brighton in midweek.
With an almost full-strength squad to choose from, Carvalhal will also consider recalling at least one wideman – Aiden McGeady or Ross Wallace – after they were both left out of the starting eleven at Brighton.
Young keeper Joe Wildsmith is fit again after suffering a back injury at home to Bolton in January.
