Eric Lichaj back from suspension for Nottingham Forest as Wednesday visit

Eric Lichaj returns from suspension for Nottingham Forest in their home game against promotion-chasing Sheffield Wednesday.

The full-back served a one-match ban at Fulham following his red card at Norwich last weekend and he is expected to be restored to the Reds' starting line-up.

Fellow defenders Matt Mills (groin) and Michael Mancienne (hamstring) remain slight injury concerns, although both players do have a chance of being involved in the squad on Saturday.

Chris Cohen (groin) is back in training but not yet ready to return while Stephen Henderson (Achilles), Armand Traore (knee) and Matty Fryatt (Achilles) remain out.

Striker Steven Fletcher will be in the reckoning to start for Wednesday as they seek to boost their play-off prospects.

Fletcher was back as a second-half substitute for Tuesday's 2-1 win at home to struggling Blackburn after a three-match suspension for his red card at Brighton.

Defender Tom Lees has missed the last three matches with knee trouble, but is nearing a return.

Gary Hooper has been out for three months with a thigh injury, but the forward is another who could be closing on a comeback.
