Nottingham Forest's caretaker manager, Micky Adams, has a fully fit squad at his disposal. Adams, appointed following the midweek sacking of Dave Bassett, has promised to make changes to the starting line-up but is refusing to give any clues. Striker Pierre van Hooijdonk will, however, return to the starting line-up after serving a three-match ban. "If the lads want to dedicate anything they get from the game to Dave, it's down to them but I'd like to think they'd do it for themselves," Adams said yesterday. "They've got to get themselves going again. I think there's enough spirit and ability in the team to dig themselves out of the position they're in."
