Forest boosted by Blackstock return
Striker Blackstock has missed the last three matches with a knee injury but could return for the clash at The Riverside. Meanwhile, Wales internationals Chris Gunter and Robert Earnshaw will both be available for the trip. Gunter overcame a virus which ruled him out of last weekend's clash with Scotland, while Earnshaw came through the friendly injury-free. And defender James Perch is pushing for a place in the squad after successfully coming through a reserves friendly against Barnsley. Perch played 55 minutes against the Tykes as he steps up his return from a stress fracture on his shin, which has kept him on the sidelines for six months.
