Henri Lansbury and Billy Sharp start for Nottingham Forest against Blackburn Rovers as Sean O'Driscoll makes two changes.

Nottingham Forest manager Sean O'Driscoll has made two changes to his side for the visit of Blackburn Rovers.

Summer signing Henri Lansbury is handed his first start for Forest alongside Billy Sharp, who is also restored in attack.

Dexter Blackstock and Simon Cox are the pair who miss out, with both players unavailable through suspension.

Loan signing Jermaine Jenas is also considered fit enough for a place on the Forest bench.

Caretaker Blackburn boss Eric Black partners Jordan Rhodes with Nuno Gomes in an attacking lineup.

Forest: Camp, Halford, Ayala, Collins, Harding, Gillett, Cohen, McGugan, Reid, Lansbury, Sharp

Blackburn: Robinson, Orr, Olsson, Givet, Lowe, Formica, Murphy, Dann, Gomes, Hanley, Rhodes
