Team news: Barnsley vs Forest

20 November 2020

The latest from the Nottingham Forest dressing room ahead of the trip to Oakwell to face Barnsley.

Chris Hughton confirmed that Harry Arter is available for selection after the midfielder returned from international duty with Republic of Ireland early with a minor injury.

He has been in full training so is available, but the game still comes to soon for the injured players previously missing.

Samba Sow, who came off injured against Wycombe before the break, joins Joe Worrall, Tyler Blackett, Fouad Bachirou, Michael Dawson and Lewis Grabban on the treatment table.

Hughton confirmed that all of those sidelined are edging closer to a return ahead of another busy run of fixtures in which the whole squad will be needed.

He said: “The squad will be hugely important. We’ve got to be lucky and hopefully not pick up injuries.

“The injured players who are, slowly but surely, coming back will play a big part because you want as many available as possible - particularly the possibility of using five subs from nine on the bench.

“That gives us options of using the squad, so if you have as strong a squad as possible, that gives you a better opportunity.”
