Nottingham Forest will have an unchanged squad for Huddersfield's visit as they look to extend their unbeaten Sky Bet Championship run.

Reds boss Dougie Freedman has no new concerns, although there has been mixed news this week regarding those who are currently out injured.

Club-record signing Britt Assombalonga could resume training next month, following his serious knee problem, but the striker still has a long way to go before making a first-team return. Midfielder Henri Lansbury (ankle) is making good progress and may also be back training in March.

Andy Reid will not play again this season, however, after undergoing further surgery on his groin in America.

The experienced midfielder's contract is due to expire in the summer and a decision will be made on his future in the coming weeks. No timescale has been put on when Daniel Pinillos (knee) or Matty Fryatt (Achilles) might be fit.

Huddersfield club captain Mark Hudson is back in contention after serving a two-game ban for reaching 10 yellow cards.

On-loan forward Jamie Paterson misses out against his parent club while winger Sean Scannell (knee) and on-loan midfielder Emyr Huws (ankle) both remain sidelined.

Recent loan signing Elvis Manu has been struggling with illness this week after stepping off the bench in last week's defeat at Preston and is doubtful, while midfielder Karim Matmour is hoping to shake off a knock.

Midfielders Dean Whitehead and Kyle Dempsey, plus left-back Jason Davidson are among those pushing for recalls.
