Double doubt for Reds

Nottingham Forest have doubts over both Jack Hobbs and Guy Moussi for the visit of Sky Bet Championship leaders Leicester.


Defender Hobbs (ankle) and midfielder Moussi (calf) missed Sunday's FA Cup loss to Sheffield United with their injuries and may be absent again.


Billy Davies is likely to shuffle his pack from the team which were beaten by the Blades, with goalkeeper Karl Darlow expected to return between the sticks while midfielder Djamal Abdoun (leg) is available again.


David Vaughan, Chris Cohen, Dexter Blackstock (all knee), Kelvin Wilson and Henri Lansbury (both back) remain on the sidelines.


Leicester have Liam Moore back for the clash.


The full-back has been out since January with a rib injury but, with the Foxes not having had a game at the weekend, he is now back to fitness.


Boss Nigel Pearson has two absentees, defender Sean St Ledger (groin) and striker Tom Hooper (shin), and would make Kevin Phillips the club's oldest ever outfield player if he selects the veteran striker.


Pearson's leaders have not tasted defeat in their last 11 league games but come up against a Forest team without a loss in 13 Championship fixtures.
