Team news: Stoke vs Forest

28 December 2020

The latest from the Nottingham Forest dressing room ahead of Tuesday night's game against Stoke City.

Chris Hughton said that the Nottingham Forest squad is looking in good shape injury wise ahead of the clash against Stoke City.

Scott McKenna is nearing a return, with Hughton saying he will make a decision on whether to include him in the matchday squad or not.

"He is the only one as on the injury front we are looking good at this moment," Hughton said. "The only ones that are not training are Jack Colback and Luke Freeman.

"We are hoping that Luke will be back training over the next couple of weeks. Scott is the only one I have a decision to make on. He did train today and did part of the training yesterday as well, so he is the one that I have got to make a decision on whether he has done enough."

Opposition team news

Stoke could continue with their three-man defence which was deployed at Coventry City on Boxing Day.

The switch was a forced one following an injury to left back Morgan Fox, with Michael O'Neill opting to play wing-backs in lieu of an alternative option at full back.

Joe Allen made his long-awaited return from injury at St Andrew's and will be pushing for a starting spot in midfield.
