Team news: Norwich vs Forest

8 December 2020

The latest from the Nottingham Forest dressing room ahead of Wednesday's trip to Norwich City.

Ryan Yates will be suspended for The Reds following his red card at Reading last weekend, with Samba Sow in line to take his place in midfield.

Scott McKenna is unlikely to be involved having picked up anoher injury at Reading, while other injured players are nearing a return to full fitness.

Chris Hughton said: "The one that would be the most prominent would be Scott McKenna, he is still having some trouble with his ankle so the likelihood is that he will miss out.

"Tyler Blackett is training, Bachirou is training and Grabban is not so far away. It is just light training and hopefully he can get back into the group next week. That has dragged on a little bit but those are the circumstances.

"The two that will be a bit longer will be Jack Colback and Luke Freeman."

Opposition team news

Ben Gibson and Przemyslaw Placheta have been ruled out for Norwich after picking up knocks in the win against Sheffield Wednesday on the weekend.

The Canaries could welcome back Todd Cantwell, however, with former Forest loanee Kieran Dowell, Kenny McLean and Jordan Hugill all hoping to be involved after their injuries.

Longer-term absentees Tim Krul and Lukas Rupp are still unavailable.
