Team news: Forest vs Swansea

27 November 2020

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

Chris Hughton confirmed that Gaetan Bong and Luke Freeman will both be absent from Sunday's squad through injury.

Bong pulled out just before the defeat against Bournemouth having picked up a slight injury in the warm-up, while Freeman was also missing with a slight knock. Both players' injuries are not serious and could return next week.

There was positive news as Joe Worrall, Tyler Blackett, Samba Sow, Lewis Grabban and Michael Dawson all trained with the squad on Friday as they continue their recoveries from injury, but Hughton admitted that it may be too soon to see them in action this weekend.

He said: "We have had some relatively long-termers back training. It has been a positive couple of days with Joe Worrall, Tyler Blackett and Samba Sow training today, also Lewis Grabban and Michael Dawson training as well.

"That is the positive bit, but how long it will take them to get up to speed, particularly the first two in Joe and Tyler because they have been out for a while, remains to be seen. It is good to see them back out on the training pitch and it gives everybody a lift."

Opposition team news

Viktor Gyokeres and Jordon Garrick have returned to training having compelted a period of self-isolation following positive Coivd-19 tests and are in contention for Sunday's game.

The Swans are continuing to manage the fitness of Andre Ayew and Marc Guehi following their hamstring injuries and both could be involved at The City Ground.
