Team news: QPR vs Forest

11 September 2020

The latest team news from the Nottingham Forest dressing room ahead of the first league game of the season against Queens Park Rangers.

Sabri Lamouchi has confirmed that Tiago Silva will be missing from the game through injury but that is his only injury concern as The Reds have had a full week on the training ground to prepare for the clash at Loftus Road.

Lamouchi said: “It’s given us the chance to work on the mistakes from last week, what went wrong at Barnsley.

“They have worked hard and they will be ready for the next game, which is very important.

"Tiago Silva is out but all others are ready."

Joe Worrall, Joe Lolley and Samba Sow were among the absentees from the Carabao Cup tie at Barnsley last weekend, with the trio in line for their first taste of action this season.

There could also be league bows for summer signings Luke Freeman, Lyle Taylor, Tyler Blackett and Fouad Bachirou, while Miguel Angel Guerrero will be hoping to be involved for the first time since his switch from Olympiacos.

Jack Colback will be hoping to make his first appearance since returning to the club on a permanent basis, while Lamouchi has a selection headache at right back with Jordan Gabriel making his first start against Barnsley, and the experienced duo of Tendayi Darikwa and Carl Jenkinson all pushing for a spot in the side.

Opposition team news

Bright Oseyi-Samuel and Ryan Manning could both miss out on the game as they continue with discussions over their future at the club.

Lyndon Dykes, Niko Hamalainen and Conor Masterson will all be available having missed the Carabao Cup tie last weekend, with the trio returning from international duty.
