Coventry have no new injury or suspension concerns as they prepare for the visit of high-flying midlands rivals Nottingham Forest.

The Sky Blues recorded their third draw on the bounce at the weekend as Bristol City came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw, and any changes from that encounter are expected to be purely tactical.

Having gone with a 4-5-1 formation against Swansea and Blackpool, manager Chris Coleman reverted to the more traditional 4-4-2 at Ashton Gate and it remains to be seen which will be his preferred choice against Billy Davies' third-place Forest.

Freddy Eastwood overcame a knee injury to line up alongside Clinton Morrison at the weekend and he is again available.

Defenders Ben Turner, Marcus Hall and Jordan Clarke should return to contention soon but are unlikely be available this time around as the Sky Blues look to avenge their 2-0 defeat at the City Ground in late December.

Forest boss Billy Davies may tinker with his starting line-up.

Radoslaw Majewski and Paul Anderson were left out of the starting XI for Saturday's 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday and Davies must decide whether or not to recall them to the side.

That result saw the Reds return to winning ways after Davies' men had lost their 20-game unbeaten league record to East Midlands rivals Derby.

Davies has no injury or suspension worries to contend with but Nathan Tyson will be hoping to retain his place after making his first start of 2010 against the Owls.

The Reds, who have lost just one league game on their travels this season, are just a point behind second-placed West Brom.
