Aitor Karanka could ring changes for Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest boss Aitor Karanka could ring the changes against Barnsley after seeing his side’s seven-match unbeaten run come to an end.

Karanka criticised his side’s display in Good Friday’s 2-0 defeat at Millwall and is set to make more alterations to his starting XI.

Barrie McKay and Apostolos Vellios were handed rare starts at the Den but failed to impress and will likely make way.

Striker Daryl Murphy and midfielder Kieran Dowell both missed the Millwall game through injury and will be checked on, while David Vaughan continues to struggle with an ankle problem.

Barnsley boss Jose Morais expects to have Kieffer Moore available.

Moore had been forced off with cramp during Good Friday’s 2-2 draw with Bristol City.

Morais, whose side are winless in six games, is likely to remain without Mamadou Thiam and Nick Townsend who both picked up injuries in training last week.

Barnsley go into the game sitting in the bottom three after Birmingham’s win on Saturday.
