Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton has hinted that Ben Osborn will return to the starting line-up against Fulham.

The midfielder was only named as a substitute at Aston Villa because of a minor injury and he made a positive impact when introduced from the bench on Saturday.

Full-back Danny Fox missed the defeat at Villa Park with a minor niggle but he should be back in contention.

David Vaughan, out for over a month with a groin injury, resumed full training on Monday and the midfielder might have an outside chance of making the squad against Sheffield United.

Nottingham Forest have only lost one of their last 12 home league games against Fulham (W7 D4), a 3-0 defeat in September 2000.

Forest will have had a different manager in charge for each of their last six league meetings with Fulham - Stuart Pearce, Dougie Freedman, Paul Williams, Philippe Montanier, Gary Brazil and current boss Mark Warburton.

Nottingham Forest have lost their last two home league games, last losing three on the bounce in April 2016.

Fulham winger Floyd Ayite looks set to sit out the match at the City Ground.

Ayite came off just before half-time in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough due to a hamstring problem.

Rafa Soares has been stepping up his recovery from an ankle issue and is poised to feature for the under-23s this week.

Tom Cairney (knee) and Lucas Piazon (broken leg) remain sidelined.

The Cottagers have conceded at least twice in six of their last seven games against the the Reds in all competitions.

Fulham lost their previous league game on the road at Burton, while they haven't lost consecutive away games in the Championship since January 2016.
