He picked up a thigh injury and has been missing for the last few games.

Giulian Biancone

The Frenchman has suffered a bad knee injury.

Forest do have plenty of cover at right-back though.

Moussa Niakhate

Moussa Niakhate is set to join his fellow countryman on the sidelines for some time too.

A thigh injury means that he is set to miss the next couple of months.

Scott McKenna and Cheikhou Kouyate

Scott McKenna and Cheikhou Kouyate are both due to be assessed ahead of the weekend.

Forest will be keen for McKenna to recover as they are now light at center-half.
