A groin problem forced the defender to be substituted at half-time against Rotherham on Wednesday night and he will be monitored ahead of the weekend.

Britt Assombalonga (calf), Thomas Lam (dead leg), David Vaughan and Matty Cash all missed out at the New York Stadium and remain doubts while Daniel Pinillos and Matty Fryatt (Achilles) definitely remain on the sidelines.

Some good news for Reds boss Philippe Montanier sees the return from suspension of Hildeberto Pereira while Chris Cohen could also come back into the reckoning.

Norwich will check on defender Ivo Pinto and midfielder Alex Tettey as they bid for a third successive league win.

The pair were substituted at half-time in the 2-1 home win over Wigan on Tuesday night with groin and hip injuries respectively.

Ryan Bennett and Alex Pritchard replaced them and are in contention to start should they fail to recover while Robbie Brady (quad) could also return.

Transfer window capture Nelson Oliveira, who had a loan spell with Forest last season, may be involved in the squad for the first time.
