Nottm Forest V Norwich at The City Ground - Match Preview

Britt Assombalonga looks set to return to the Nottingham Forest starting line-up for the Sky Bet Championship clash with Norwich at the City Ground.

The 21-year-old striker only appeared as a half-time substitute for Wednesday's home loss to Brentford as Stuart Pearce felt he needed a little rest.

Defenders Jack Hunt and Daniel Fox both sustained knocks in that match and will be monitored for the weekend, while Matty Fryatt continues to battle with a groin strain.

Andy Reid (groin), Jack Hobbs (ankle) and Chris Cohen (knee) remain sidelined by long-term injuries.

Northern Ireland international Kyle Lafferty is an injury concern for Norwich.

Lafferty was withdrawn early in the second half of Tuesday's 4-0 defeat to Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium with a hip flexor problem.

Boss Neil Adams has not ruled out changes after the Canaries suffered their heaviest defeat of the season at Boro which left them with just one win from seven league games.

Defensive trio Carlos Cuellar, Ignasi Miquel and Jos Hooiveld could come into contention for a start while striker Gary Hooper, a half-time substitute in midweek, may also be handed a place in the XI
