Nottingham Forest go into their home game against Ipswich without any fresh problems as they look for the win that would guarantee them a Championship play-off spot.

Boss Billy Davies still has worries over winger Paul Anderson, who missed both games over the Easter period with an Achilles tendon injury.

George Boyd, Joe Garner, Garath McCleary, David McGoldrick, Lewis McGugan and James Perch are those players who will be hoping for a recall.

The Reds will again be without captain Paul McKenna (knee) and defender Julian Bennett as he continues his rehabilitation after a long spell out through injury.

Victory for Forest would assure them of a top-six finish, regardless of Blackpool`s result against already-promoted Newcastle.

Ipswich manager Roy Keane has no fresh injury concerns as he looks for a third straight win at his former club.

Jaime Peters has recovered from a head injury that prompted his withdrawal at half-time at Derby on Monday so the diminutive winger could again be involved.

Peters has started the last three games in three different positions as Keane tinkers with his line-up but could again feature at full-back.

Teenage striker Connor Wickham played the full 90 minutes of the 3-1 win at Pride Park and scored to keep himself in the frame, though David Healy and Pablo Counago are also pushing for a starting role.

Goalkeeper Richard Wright has been out since injuring his knee in November but stepped up his comeback with an appearance for the reserves last week.

Keane remains without winger Luciano Civelli, who is out until September as he battles to save his career following a serious knee injury.
