Nottingham Forest vs Norwich City - Forest wait on Ben Osborn

Nottingham Forest left-back Ben Osborn faces a late fitness test ahead of the Sky Bet Championship clash against Norwich.

Osborn picked up a calf problem during training on Thursday and will be assessed.

Jack Robinson is suspended, meaning either Tendayi Darikwa, Saidy Yanko or Danny Fox could be shifted across the defence if Osborn misses out.

Portuguese winger Diogo Goncalves is available again following a three-match ban, while forward Hillal Soudani is closing in on a return after a knee problem.

Norwich will check on striker Teemu Pukki ahead of the trip to the City Ground.

The Canaries top-scorer limped off with cramp while on international duty for Finland during the Nations League win over Greece.

Scotland midfielder Kenny McLean has been building up his fitness from an ankle injury and Ben Marshall could be involved again following illness.

Captain Grant Hanley has been out with a thigh problem, while winger Matt Jarvis (ankle/knee) and forward Carlton Morris (knee) both continue their rehabilitation.
