Forest welcome League 1 new boys and fellow promotion hopefuls Carlisle United to The City Ground on Saturday. The Reds' will be looking to avenge the 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Oldham on Tuesday, with an improved performance against last years League 2 Champions. It is nearly 30 years since the sides last met at The City Ground in the old Div 2, when The Reds' ran out 5-1 victors. Later in the season the sides drew 1-1 at Brunton Park.

Kris Commons is not expected to make the squad as he is still recovering from an ankle injury. Scott Dobie is likely to be added as he looks to gain more match fitness after his long lay off.

Forest from: Smith, Gary Holt, Thompson, Morgan, Breckin, Bennett, Southall, Clingan, Harris, Dobie, Perch, Lester, Agogo, Grant Holt, Padula, Pedersen.

Player to watch: Grant Holt
