Bertrand back from ban

Ryan Bertrand returns from suspension for Nottingham Forest`s trip to Portsmouth.

The England Under-21 international, on loan from Chelsea, served a one-match ban as the Reds recorded a 2-0 home victory over Ipswich. If, as expected, Bertrand goes straight back into the team at left-back, boss Billy Davies will have to decide between Luke Chambers and Kelvin Wilson for a central defensive spot.

Wilson returned to the side last weekend as Chambers was moved across to right-back.

Davies` small squad means that forwards Nathan Tyson (knee), Garath McCleary (knee), Robert Earnshaw (calf) and Dele Adebola (back) may be required to make up the numbers once again despite carrying niggling injuries.
