Nottingham Forest v Ipswich preview: Championship clash live on Sky Sports
Last Updated: 07/05/17 10:49am
Nottingham Forest will check on the condition of Danny Fox ahead of Sunday's Sky Bet Championship home clash with Ipswich, live on Sky Sports 3 HD from 11.30am.
The defender missed the 2-0 loss at QPR last weekend having sustained an injury in the pre-match warm-up. Along with Fox, it also remains to be seen whether Zach Clough and Jack Hobbs are fit enough to be back involved.
Forest will be battling to retain their Championship status as they sit just a place above the drop zone, level on points with Blackburn.
Tom Lawrence is set to make a final Ipswich appearance as his loan spell from Leicester comes to an end. Midfielder Toumani Diagouraga has returned to parent club Leeds after his season was ended early by a groin problem.
Teenager Andre Dozzell could be given a chance to impress after the 18-year-old midfielder penned a contract extension. Jonny Williams, on loan from Crystal Palace, is out with a hamstring problem. Danish defender Jonas Knudsen (shoulder) and centre-half Steven Taylor (hamstring) also continue their recovery, along with Adam Webster and midfielder Luke Hyam (both ankle).
Forest haven't lost a home league game against Ipswich in any of their last 11 matches (W5 D6).
The Tractor Boys' last league victory at the City Ground came in December 1999, a 1-0 victory courtesy of a goal from Matt Holland.
Nottingham Forest have lost their last three final day fixtures played at home, last beating Portsmouth 2-0 back in 2012.
Only Aston Villa (14) and Rotherham (17) have scored fewer away goals in the Championship this season than Ipswich (18).
Forest have only failed to score in one of their last 10 home games, vs relegation rivals Blackburn in April (0-1).
Tom Lawrence has scored more goals (9) and provided more assists (9) than any other Ipswich player in the Championship this season.
It's all or nothing for Forest now after going down to QPR and losing. I've heard they will pack out the City Ground and you hope they can use that to their advantage.
If they can stay up, there's a few positives to take forward with Mark Warburton in charge, and I think they will edge a tight, cagey affair.
DAVID PRUTTON PREDICTS: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds: 13/2)
