Forest to make changes for Royals


Davies made seven changes as his side went out of the cup at Birmingham in midweek.

The likes of Kelvin Wilson, Chris Gunter, Paul Anderson, Paul McKenna, Radoslaw Majewski and Dexter Blackstock will be pushing for recalls.

Nicky Shorey was ineligible at St Andrew’s under the terms of his loan from Aston Villa but the left-back will return to the starting line-up against his former club.

Striker Robert Earnshaw is still nursing a hamstring problem and remains a doubt.

Forest are unbeaten in 17 Championship matches and will be looking to consolidate second place in the table.
