Moussi on Bench for Forest Clash

Having left the City Ground in the summer, 29-year-old Moussi was without a club until signing a short-term Birmingham deal last week as new manager Gary Rowett strengthened his midfield options.

A lack of match fitness, however, meant that the Frenchman was not named in the matchday squad for last weekend's win at Rotherham United.

To try and get up to speed, Moussi played the full 90 minutes of an under-21 clash at Barnsley in midweek.

Signed by Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2008, he made 150 appearances for the club including 108 league starts.

The Reds named the following side as they chased a third successive league victory: Darlow, Fox, Lascelles, Mancienne, Lichaj, Burke, Osborn, Lansbury, Antonio, Fryatt, Assombalonga
