As you were for Forest

Nottingham Forest have no fresh problems and could be unchanged against Bolton at the City Ground.

Simon Cox is still out with ankle ligament damage so Darius Henderson, who scored the injury-time winner at Blackburn last weekend, is likely to start again up front and centre-half Kelvin Wilson is expected to run out at the City Ground for the first time since returning to the club from Celtic.

Boss Billy Davies has options should he wish to make any changes. DefendersDan Harding, Greg Halford and Danny Collins and forwards Jamie Mackie, Ishmael Miller and Matt Derbyshire were all on the bench at Ewood Park.

Winger Djamel Abdoun, a summer signing from Greek side Olympiacos, is still building up his match fitness but could be in contention by the end of the month.

Chris Eagles is a doubt for Bolton despite being close to making a full recovery from the ankle injury that kept him out of last week's 1-1 draw with Reading.

Manager Dougie Freedman will leave it late before making a decision on his playmaker but will also be without the injured Andre Moritz who is still a few weeks away from a return.

The Trotters will also have long-term absentee Stuart Holden missing but Jay Spearing is in line for his second start after joining permanently from Liverpool at the end of last week.

Tim Ream, Craig Davies and Adam Bogdan all returned from international duty unscathed and are likely to feature in the matchday squad as Bolton go in search of their first league win of the season.
