Match Preview

Maynard missing for Robins Bristol City will be without Nicky Maynard when they take on Nottingham Forest. The striker was sent off in the 42nd minute of Saturday's 3-2 defeat to Sheffield United and will be suspended for the rest of the season. Maynard's dismissal was the first of his career and the former Crewe forward, who missed the majority of the season due to a knee injury, will miss the final three games. "I feel disappointed in myself and upset for the fans. Hopefully the team can push on from Monday against Forest," he said. "It didn't dawn on me until I was in the dressing room that my season was over. I kept thinking we had four games left and I'd be back for the last game but then I realised." Meanwhile, Louis Carey, sidelined since fracturing his skull against Scunthorpe at the end of February, may return to the fold. Paul Konchesky will return for Nottingham Forest as they look to keep their promotion hopes alive. The on-loan Liverpool left-back missed the derby win over Leicester on Good Friday thanks to a suspension but is available and will replace youngster Brendan Moloney. That will see Chris Gunter switch to left-back as Joel Lynch (thigh) is still out. American striker Robbie Findley comes into contention for his first start for the club after making his debut as a late substitute against Leicester. However he and Kris Boyd may have to make do with a place on the bench as Robert Earnshaw and Marcus Tudgay both scored on Friday to justify their starting roles.

Match Report

Forest boost play-off hopes Nottingham Forest strengthened their grip on an npower Championship play-off spot with a timely 3-2 win over Bristol City at Ashton Gate. Luke Chambers headed the winning goal in the second half to end a four-match losing run on the road for Billy Davies' side and give them a first victory on their travels in nine attempts. A Kris Boyd tap-in and a penalty from the on-loan Middlesbrough forward sent the Reds into half-time in control. But Marvin Elliott halved City's arrears soon after the restart and Jon Stead headed them level on the hour mark. Chambers had the last word, though, with his fifth goal of the season. City boss Keith Millen made five changes following the defeat to Sheffield United two days ago. Three were enforced, with Nicky Maynard beginning a three-match suspension after his red card at Bramall Lane and Damion Stewart and Kalifa Cisse missing out through injury. Brett Pitman and Martyn Woolford dropped to the bench. David Clarkson, Stead, Cole Skuse, Jamal Campbell-Ryce and Louis Carey were recalled. Boyd came back into the Forest side along with on-loan left-back Paul Konchesky. Marcus Tudgay and Chris Gunter made way. There was an early scare for City when David James fumbled Lewis McGugan's free-kick, but the former England goalkeeper smothered the ball at the second attempt. McGugan was involved again shortly afterwards when he crossed from the right for Boyd to sweep the ball past James after four minutes. Stead had two half-chances to equalise, first shooting just wide and then almost benefiting when Konchesky's header back to Lee Camp did not quite reach the Forest keeper. Campbell-Ryce also went close but dragged his shot past the post. It was somewhat against the run of play when Forest extended their lead. McGugan fell over Carey's dangling leg and Boyd blasted the resulting penalty into the roof of the net. A superb passing move involving four City players saw Campbell-Ryce get free down the left and cross for Elliott to sneak his far-post header beyond Camp to make it 2-1 four minutes into the second half. Albert Adomah's 20-yard shot went narrowly wide soon afterwards. Stead then headed City level on the hour mark, guiding Jordan Spence's centre back across Camp who got a hand to the ball but could not keep it out. It looked like neither side would find a winner, until Chambers' looping header from McGugan's cross in the 72nd minute. City thought they had salvaged a draw in injury time when Marlon Jackson scored but the substitute put the ball in the net with his hand and was booked by referee Roger East.
