Fighting for their survival this afternoon, the hosting Reds also make two changes from the side that lost on their travels to Queens Park Rangers last time out.
Danny Fox, who was unable to take to the field at Loftus Road after sustaining an injury during warm-up, again misses out.
Forest go into the game on 48 points alongside relegation rivals Blackburn Rovers but with a goal difference advantage of one and have not lost to the Tractor Boys at home in their past 11 meetings.
Nottingham Forest: Smith; Lichaj, Worrall, Mancienne, Mills; Vaughan; Osborn, Cohen, Carayol, Ward; Assombalonga
Subs: Evtimov, Tshibola, Clough, Lam, Vellios, Cash, Brereton
Ipswich Town: Bialkowski; Spence, Chambers, Berra, Kenlock; Ward, Skuse, Huws, Rowe; Samuel, Sears
Subs: Gerken, Emmanuel, Webster, Dozzell, Downes, Moore, Pitman
