Nottingham Forest likely to be unchanged for Brighton clash

The Nottingham Forest squad is likely to be unchanged for the visit of title-chasing Brighton.

Hildeberto Pereira has been training this week following a shoulder problem but Saturday will probably come too soon for the winger.

Defenders Jack Hobbs (foot), Matt Mills (groin) and Michael Mancienne (hamstring) are not quite ready to return, while goalkeeper Stephen Henderson (Achilles) will not play again this season.

Back-up keeper Vladimir Stojkovic has a shoulder problem and was receiving treatment back in his native Serbia this week.

Brighton may have to call on Liam Rosenior to plug a gap at left-back.

With Gaeten Bong sidelined with a knee injury Seb Pocognoli has been filling in, but he went off with a groin problem against Newcastle on Tuesday.

Rosenior has not featured in the first team since suffering a broken ankle at Reading in August.

But the former Fulham and Hull defender made a 90-minute appearance for the club's under-23s on Monday and could be drafted in by boss Chris Hughton.
