Suspended Figueiredo misses out for Forest

Nottingham Forest will be without suspended defender Tobias Figueiredo for the Sky Bet Championship match against Ipswich.

The Portuguese starts a three-game ban after being shown a straight red card during Wednesday night’s remarkable 5-5 draw at Aston Villa.

German Michael Hefele could come into the defence as cover, while forward Gil Dias and Karim Ansarifard are other attacking options for boss Aitor Karanka should he want to make changes.

Defender Danny Fox (foot) and forward Hillal Soudani (knee) both continue their recovery.

Ipswich boss Paul Lambert intends to freshen up his side after naming the same starting XI for four successive games.

Lambert reported no new injury concerns from the midweek 3-2 home defeat by Bristol City, when forwards Kayden Jackson, forward Ellis Harrison and Jack Lankester all came off the bench.

On-loan midfielder Tayo Edun has returned to Fulham for treatment on an eye problem, and defender Myles Kenlock (ankle) is working on his fitness.

Midfielders Tom Adeyemi (Achilles) and Emyr Huws (knee) both continue their own rehabilitation.
