Team news: Forest vs Bristol City

30 June 2020

The latest from the Nottingham Forest dressing room as they get set to face Bristol City in the Sky Bet Championship in Wednesday evening (kick-off 6pm).

Sabri Lamouchi confirmed that he has a full squad to choose from for the visit of The Robins, with no fresh injury worries.

Ben Watson made his return to action in the win over Huddersfield on the weekend and came through unscathed so is set to be involved once more.

Samba Sow is fit, with Lamouchi not risking him for the match againt The Terriers, so could be part of the squad this time around.

Adama Diakhaby is available again after being ineligible against his parent club.

Lamouchi on Ben Watson

"Ben is important. He is doing a fantastic season and is important for the whole team. He played with some pain but not much. I prefer to save him 10 minutes before the end of the game, because he had the yellow card and with a few minutes to go you don’t know what can happen."

Lamouchi on making changes

"I don’t think so, it is just the first time that we have played after three days. Maybe Derby or Fulham next Tuesday, why not, but for now I don’t think it is necessary to make a lot of changes."

Opposition team news

Bristol City have close to a fully fit squad for the game, with only Pedro Pereira the certainty to miss out after picking up a thigh strain in the Blackburn Rovers loss.

Famara Diedhiou didn't train for the first two days last week, but appeared off the bench against Sheffield Wednesday on the weekend and could be in with a chance of starting against Forest.
