Nottingham Forest defenders Thomas Lam and Hildeberto Pereira return from suspension for the visit of QPR.

But defenders Jack Hobbs and Michael Mancienne, forward Nicklas Bendtner, and midfielders David Vaughan, Mustapha Carayol and Matt Cash all remain out.

QPR travel to the City Ground, after back-to-back league defeats, without left-back Jake Bidwell (shoulder).

Fellow left-back Joel Lynch (leg) is a doubt, while forward Jamie Mackie (ankle) is a long-term absentee.
