Nottingham Forest defender Jack Hobbs is suspended for the visit of Fulham after his sending-off in last weekend's win over Reading.

Michael Mancienne or Kelvin Wilson, who both came off the bench on Saturday, are vying to replace the centre-back.

Midfielder Jamie Ward missed last week's match with a stiff back but is expected to come back into the squad.

Robert Tesche could be in contention for a return after recovering from a foot injury which has sidelined him since the first match of the season while Kyle Ebecilio is being eased back after a hamstring problem.

Fulham caretaker manager Peter Grant has a number of injury doubts to deal with at Forest.

Richard Stearman is a doubt having only returned to training on Thursday, while Tom Cairney was another player back towards the latter part of the week.

Moussa Dembele did not train on Thursday after complaining of tightness so will need assessing before the trip to the City Ground, as will Sakari Mattila after pulling up just before kick-off against Preston last week.

Lasse Vigen Christensen is carrying a knock sustained with Denmark Under-21s, while Jazz Richards is set to remains absent.
