Gary Dicker is being linked with a move to the City Ground in the summer

The 24-year-old's performances for League One pacesetters Brighton & Hove Albion this season have caught the eye and with the midfielder yet to sign a new contract to replace his current deal, which expires in the summer, Sky Sports suggests a free transfer switch to Nottingham is a possibility.

Back to the present and the Reds will look to their superb home form to keep them in the thick of the promotion race when rivals Cardiff City come to the City Ground on Saturday.

Bluebirds goalkeeper Tom Heaton told his club's official website: “Forest will come at us. They are a decent outfit. They are having a good spell at the minute, but I think they will be concerned that we are going to come at them too.

“We are not going to be too concerned about anyone else.

“We are going to concentrate on what we can do and that will give us a good chance."
