Team News: Jamie Mackie, Simon Cox start for Nottingham Forest

Darius Henderson's return to the Nottingham Forest side must wait, with Jamie Mackie and Simon Cox preferred in attack by Billy Davies.

Jamie Mackie and Simon Cox will lead Nottingham Forest's attack against Ipswich Town, with Darius Henderson - who has missed the last two matches - named among the substitutes.

Manager Billy Davies continues to do without the services of midfielder David Vaughan, who is still recovering from a hamstring injury.

Cole Skuse returns to the Ipswich side after picking up a groin injury against Huddersfield Town.

However, boss Mick McCarthy is without Paul Taylor through illness with winger Paul Anderson left on the bench.

Forest are currently fifth in the Championship, but could be overtaken by Ipswich should the Tractor Boys win at The City Ground.

Nottingham Forest: Darlow, Halford, Lascelles, Hobbs, Harding, Chalobah, Mackie, Lansbury, Reid, Abdoun, Cox

Ipswich Town: Gerken, Chambers, Berra, Smith, Cresswell, Skuse, Hyam, Tunnicliffe, Murphy, Nouble, McGoldrick
