Boss Billy Davies will choose from an unchanged squad when play-off-bound Nottingham Forest conclude their home fixtures against already-relegated Plymouth.

Davies rang the changes at Blackpool last weekend, making five alterations to his starting line-up as he sought to give his fringe players some valuable match practice in preparation for the play-offs.

Forward Joe Garner was one of them and he will be hoping to keep his place after scoring in the 3-1 defeat at Bloomfield Road.

Full-back Chris Gunter, midfielder Radoslaw Majewski and strikers Dexter Blackstock and Robert Earnshaw are pushing for recalls.

The Reds will again be without captain Paul McKenna (knee) and defender Julian Bennett, who is continuing his comeback from long-term injury problems.

Plymouth`s top scorer Jamie Mackie is an injury doubt.

The eight-goal striker is struggling to overcome a calf injury for the club`s first game since relegation was confirmed following the 2-0 home defeat by Newcastle on Monday.

Skipper Carl Fletcher may also miss out with a knee injury so Chris Clark, an unused substitute against the Magpies, or fit-again Luke Summerfield could step in.

On-loan Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale is set to play his last game before returning to his parent club at the end of his three-month loan spell.

Yannick Bolasie and Joe Mason will be pushing for starts after being introduced late on against Newcastle while head coach Paul Mariner may give chances to the fringe players for the last two games.
