Ron Atkinson, the Nottingham Forest manager, will await news of a late fitness test on John Harkes before finalising his line-up. The experienced right-back missed last weekend's 3-1 defeat against Chelsea because of a calf injury but hopes to get the all clear to return.
Forest will definitely be without suspended pair Alan Rogers and Andy Johnson, while Jon Olav Hjelde and Hugo Porfirio are ruled out by groin and hamstring injuries respectively.
Stale Stensaas is likely to replace Rogers at left-back and Scot Gemmill is poised to take over from Johnson in midfield.
