Nottingham Forest can go clear of the drop zone with a win, while Doncaster Rovers need the points to avoid relegation.

Nottingham Forest have the chance to go seven points clear of the drop zone with a victory over struggling side Doncaster Rovers.

Donny could escape the relegation places if they overcome Forest at the City Ground tomorrow, but the bottom-placed side have failed to secure a victory in their last six league matches.

Forest boss Steve Cotterill could field the same side that drew 1-1 with Barnsley at the weekend.

Marcus Tudgay and Dexter Blackstock are likely to lead the line, while Jonathan Greening and Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee Adlène Guedioura could start in the middle of the park.

Meanwhile, Dean Saunders is unlikely to call upon Brian Stock after he suffered a groin injury ten minutes into Rovers' 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

Simon Gillett is expected to replace the injured midfielder, with James Coppinger due to start following his comeback from a facial injury at the weekend.

Current form:

Nottingham Forest: LDLWWD
Doncaster: LDLLDD

Possible lineups:

Nottingham Forest: Camp; Wootton, Gunter, Elokobi, Lynch; Reid, Greening, Guedioura, McCleary; Tudgay, Blackstock

Doncaster: Ikeme; Martis, Spurr, Chimbonda, Beye; Stock, Barnes, Coppinger, Diouf; Hayter, Bamogo

Sports Mole says: 2-0
