Team news: Blackburn vs Forest

16 October 2020

The latest from the Nottingham Forest dressing room ahead of Saturday's game at Blackburn Rovers.

Chris Hughton has confirmed that Scott McKenna and Harry Arter have recovered from their injuries and will be available for selection at Ewood Park on Saturday.

The new Forest manager has plenty of options available to him for the clash with Rovers, but Joe Worrall, Fouad Bachirou and Tyler Blackett will all be missing through injury.

Cafu will be hoping to be involved for the first time since his signing for the club, while Alex Mighten and Nicholas Ioannou will be hopeful of holding onto their shirts after making their first league starts for the club last time out against Bristol City.

Opposition team news

Tony Mowbray has revealed that he'll be without four key players for the match. Isolation will keep Derrick Williams out of action, whilst injuries will prevent both Elliott Bennett and Joe Rankin-Costello from featuring on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Lewis Holtby will have an extended period of time back in Germany following the birth of his daughter but Darragh Lenihan is fit to return to the side.
