Match Preview

Garath gets the all-McCleary Leading scorer Garath McCleary comes back into the reckoning for Nottingham Forest's final game of the season against relegated Portsmouth at the City Ground. McCleary, who has scored all nine of his goals this season in the npower Championship, is available again after serving a three-match suspension. The winger was controversially shown a straight red card during the 1-0 victory at Peterborough on April 9. Manager Steve Cotterill will check on striker Dexter Blackstock and defender Joel Lynch after both players missed the defeat to Hull last weekend with slight knocks. Blackstock was replaced in the side by Marcus Tudgay but he is also considered a doubt after a rib injury forced him off during the first half at the KC Stadium. Scott Allan will be in the Portsmouth side. Pompey feared their on-loan midfielder would be recalled by his parent club West Brom after their relegation was confirmed last week. But Albion have agreed to let Allan complete the npower Championship season before returning for their last two games. Another loanee, striker Chris McGuire, returns to the squad after he was ineligible to face his employers Derby last weekend. Teenage forward Ashley Harris limped off an hour into his full debut against the Rams, but he was only suffering from cramp and will be available. Defender Tal Ben Haim is still struggling with a calf injury and is not expected to figure for Michael Appleton's side.
