Nathan Tyson could return to the Nottingham Forest squad for the visit of Sheffield United.

A virus kept Tyson on the sidelines as the Reds recorded their first home victory of the season against Swansea on Saturday.

However, fellow forward Robert Earnshaw is expected to remain absent after missing the Swansea game with a thigh injury.

David McGoldrick made his first appearance of the season following shoulder surgery as a 75th-minute substitute at the weekend and the striker could be included on the bench once more.

Meanwhile, Polish winger Radoslaw Majewski staked his claim for a recall to the starting line up with a goal from the bench against the Swans.

Forest are unbeaten in the league in the seven matches since their opening day defeat at Burnley.

Manager Gary Speed has hinted loan-signing Ritchie De Laet will make his full debut for the Blades.

The 22-year-old Belgium international, signed from Manchester United on Friday in time to step off the bench during Saturday's defeat at Leeds, could step in for another recent signing, Frenchman Jean Calve, who Speed withdrew on Saturday.

Speed said: "Jean is ok and has made a good impact for us, but he's come from French football and found out how ferocious and physical our game is. He might be in need of a rest and Ritchie came on and did well."

Speed added that striker Jamie Ward had been named among the substitutes at Elland Road as he was not fully fit.

The United boss said: "He picked up a strain earlier in the midweek. With the size of squad we have, I have to manage it carefully and I couldn't afford to play him, make things worse and then lose him for four or five weeks."
