Nottm Forest V Brighton at The City Ground - Match Preview

Forest wait on Lansbury

Henri Lansbury is an injury doubt for Nottingham Forest ahead of the visit of promotion rivals Brighton.

Lansbury is nursing shin and calf problems sustained while on international duty with the England Under-21 squad.

However, with Lewis McGugan, Guy Moussi, Jonathan Greening and Simon Gillett all pushing for starting roles against the Seagulls, manager Billy Davies will not be short of midfield options should the former Arsenal trainee miss out.

Goalkeeper Khaled Al Rashidi (back), defenders Dan Harding (calf) and Daniel Ayala (hamstring) and striker Marcus Tudgay (broken collarbone) have all resumed training after injury and are available for selection.

Davies' side are looking to secure a seventh successive win which would equal a club record set back in 1921.

Tomasz Kuszczak is fit for Brighton. The goalkeeper limped off after the 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace with a back injury but a fortnight's rest has seen him return to training.

Defender Adam El-Abd misses out through suspension again after collecting 10 yellow cards this season so the Seagulls could be unchanged following their derby win.

Inigo Calderon will keep his place at right-back in place of Bruno (calf), and Leonardo Ulloa continues in attack on his own.

Ashley Barnes is still suspended for tripping a referee and Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) are out for the rest of the season leaving Argentinian Ulloa as the only senior striker available to boss Gus Poyet.
