Bolton vs Nottingham Forest - Bolton set to go on attack in crucial game against Nottingham

Phil Parkinson will look to guide Bolton to safety having been spoken to about his tactics by chairman Ken Anderson prior to the crucial clash with Nottingham Forest.

In a post addressed to fans on Wanderers’ website after last weekend’s 2-0 loss to Burton, Anderson said: “l can assure you, that there will be a positive and offensive line-up against Nottingham Forest.”

Should Parkinson elect to name a more attack-minded side, midfielders Josh Vela, Filipe Morais and Will Buckley could all come in.

Wanderers, who were only promoted into the Championship last season, will begin the day in the relegation zone, one point behind Burton, who are also in the bottom three, and Barnsley, who are currently outside it.

Chris Cohen will not feature for Nottingham Forest after announcing his retirement.

The midfielder, who has barely featured this year due to a knee injury, came on for the closing stages in the final home game of the season against Bristol City to bring the curtain down on an 11-year spell at The City Ground.

Juan Fuentes will be missing after he broke his tibia against Barnsley in the penultimate home game of the season.

Tobias Figueiredo (hamstring) is again doubtful and David Vaughan (ankle) is likely to miss out too.
