Returnees set for waiting game
Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cotterill is likely to resist the temptation to include any of his players returning from injury when Ipswich visit the City Ground.
Striker Dexter Blackstock (knee), winger Garath McCleary (knee) and midfielders Paul Anderson (hamstring) and George Boateng all made their comebacks in behind-closed-doors friendlies this week.
Anderson is probably the nearest to a first-team return but Cotterill will not want to risk any further problems with the quartet.
Forest have no new injury problems after Chris Gunter and on-loan full-back Greg Cunningham returned unscathed from international duty.
Striker Ishmael Miller underwent a hernia operation prior to the international break and is still recovering, while the versatile Chris Cohen (knee) remains a long-term absentee.
Ibrahima Sonko has been ruled out of the trip but Ipswich have received a triple injury boost.
Centre-back Sonko, who has been dogged by injury since his summer arrival at Portman Road, was forced off in the 4-1 defeat to Millwall at the end of last month nursing a hamstring strain.
He subsequently missed the 3-2 reverse at home to Doncaster, Ipswich`s last game before the international break, and despite making good progress is not yet fully fit to face Forest.
However, midfielder Lee Bowyer, also forced off against the Lions with a back problem, has trained all week and returns into contention.
Nathan Ellington (calf) has also rejoined his team-mates this week and is available while fellow striker Daryl Murphy (hamstring) trained for the first time on Thursday and will be part of manager Paul Jewell`s thoughts should he not suffer any ill-effects.
Defender Damien Delaney remains sidelined for around six weeks as he recovers from surgery to a stress fracture of his foot.
Forest prosper after late show
Marcus Tudgay had the final word for Nottingham Forest in a topsy-turvy npower Championship clash which ended 3-2 as Danny Collins' saw his first goals for Ipswich cancelled out.
Collins struck early on before Robbie Findley pegged the Tractor Boys back before the break.
The former Sunderland centre-half grabbed an unlikely second to set up what had appeared to be a convincing win at the City Ground.
But Joel Lynch and Tudgay shocked the travelling fans with headed goals in the last 10 minutes.
Ipswich arrived in Nottingham eager to avoid a fourth consecutive league defeat, and were boosted by the return to fitness of veteran midfielder Lee Bowyer and much-travelled striker Nathan Ellington.
Steve Cotterill, in the hunt for a fifth league win since succeeding Steve McClaren, opted to restore Paul Anderson to the bench after a lengthy absence from first-team action.
Both sides appeared reluctant to start with any conviction.
It was not until the 16th minute that either team registered a shot on target, Guy Moussi's twisting drive collected comfortably by David Stockdale.
Lewis McGugan then took aim from distance but screwed his effort wildly over Stockdale's crossbar.
Perhaps against the run of play, the Tractor Boys seized the advantage with 25 minutes played.
On-loan defender Collins rose to meet Aaron Cresswell's inswinging cross to register his first goal for the Suffolk side.
Cotterill's Reds pressed on regardless in front of the home faithful, and were soon rewarded for their early promise thanks to Findley.
Jason Scotland conceded a free-kick in a dangerous position outside the penalty area, only for McGugan to pick out the American hitman who gleefully tucked home his fifth goal of the season.
After the interval, Collins proved his defensive worth to Paul Jewell by bravely blocking a stinging strike from Moussi, but the Stoke man's impact was soon felt again at the sharp end.
Collins, before today without a league goal since leaving Sunderland two years ago, leapt to glance Jimmy Bullard's corner beyond Lee Camp's grasp and complete a brace on the hour mark.
Summer recruit Jay Emmanuel-Thomas was introduced as Bowyer's replacement and soon gave Camp further food for thought with a left-footed drive, the ball sailing just over the crossbar.
The Reds were to snatch their unlikely victory in a frantic final 10 minutes.
Seven minutes from time, Andy Reid bustled up the left wing to supply Lynch with a tidy cross, the ex-Brighton man nodding home a valuable first goal for the club.
And Tudgay broke the Tractor Boys hearts in the first minute of stoppage time as Greg Cunningham lofted in an accurate pass which the former Sheffield Wednesday frontman nodded home.
