Match Preview

Blackstock and Cox banned Nottingham Forest strikers Dexter Blackstock and Simon Cox are both suspended for the visit of Blackburn to the City Ground. Blackstock was sent off controversially for an elbow on Derby captain Richard Keogh in Forest's 1-0 defeat on Sunday, while Cox was booked in the closing stages of the feisty contest. Manager Sean O'Driscoll hinted that he could appeal the dismissal, with replays showing the contact appeared accidental, but Blackstock will definitely miss out against managerless Rovers. Midfielder Adlene Guedioura is still suspended while Marcus Tudgay, another forward, is sidelined with a double hernia injury. Billy Sharp came off the bench against the Rams and looks primed for a place in the starting XI this time out. New loan signing Jermaine Jenas is unlikely to feature, with O'Driscoll concerned about his fitness due to a lack of match practice. Caretaker manager Eric Black will include Gael Givet in the Blackburn squad. The defender failed to reappear for the second half of the draw with Charlton on Saturday for unknown reasons, but Black insists the situation has now been sorted. "The outcome has been resolved," Black told Rovers' official website. "Gael came and spoke to me and outlined the decisions surrounding it. I'm happy with what he had to say. "He has been spoken to, he's spoken to the rest of the group, he accepts that what he has done was wrong, he's an emotional guy, he just wants to win." Black, who was handed the reins after Steve Kean resigned last week, could even be able to call on Colin Kazim-Richards again. The striker made an impressive start to life in Lancashire before a knee injury kept him on the sidelines, but he could return to the fray at the City Ground. Rovers are still missing striker Leon Best (knee) and defender Markus Olsson (hamstring).
