Team news: Forest vs Swansea

15 July 2020

The latest from the Nottingham Forest dressing room ahead of Wednesday night's match against Swansea City at The City Ground.

Sabri Lamouchi will leave it late on making a call on the fitness of both Matty Cash and Joe Lolley. The pair missed the draw at Preston on the weekend and Lamouchi is hopeful that they can be involved tomorrow night.

Carl Jenkinson and Nuno Da Costa both came into the side and both impressed and will be hoping to keep hold of their places, as will Michael Dawson who came into the side for Tobias Figueiredo.

Tiago Silva also dropped down to the bench for the clash at Deepdale and will also be aiming for a starting spot.

Lamouchi said: "The last game for Jenkinson and Dawson was five or six months ago and it was a great performance from them. I am lucky to work with this group.

"This group is very professional, like Carl and Daws, because they are focused, they are positive and whether they are on the pitch or not, they do their job.

"This is the perfect example for everyone so I am not worried about them or the choices, but I would put out the best team for tomorrow."

On Cash and Lolley, Lamouchi added: "I hope [to have them available], we need to check on them with the last session today [Tuesday] and we will see what is happening with Matty and Joe."

Opposition team news

Steve Cooper will also have a late fitness call to make surrounding goalkeeper Freddie Woodman after he was taken off with a hip injury in the defeat against Leeds on the weekend. Erwin Mulder remains on standby to deputise.

Swansea are expected to continue with their three-man defence, with Mike van der Hoorn pushing to be involved from the start after his return from injury.

Jordon Garrick is available again after serving his suspension but Joe Rodon and Ben Wilmot remain sidelined.
