Blackburn Rovers travel to Nottingham Forest tomorrow evening for a Championship encounter. Here, Sports Mole previews the match between the two former Premier League sides.

Eric Black will be in charge of managerless Blackburn Rovers for tomorrow's trip to Nottingham Forest.

Travelling Rovers have been without a head coach since Steve Kean opted to resign from his position last month.

Interim coach Black will have French defender Gael Givet at his disposal, although the match may come too soon for Colin Kazim-Richards, who has been struggling with a hamstring problem.

Hosting Forest will be without Dexter Blackstock, Simon Cox and Adlene Guedioura, all of whom are suspended.

With all those absentees, loanee midfielder Jermaine Jenas could be in line for his second debut for the Tricky Trees, although he is likely to start on the bench.

These two clubs last met in a league encounter back in February 2001 - a match Forest won 2-1.
