Forest fire burns bright
George Elokobi's return as a substitute last weekend means Nottingham Forest have no new problems for the visit of Bristol City.
Elokobi had missed the last five matches with a hamstring injury but the on-loan Wolves defender played the final few minutes of the 3-0 victory at Crystal Palace and comes back into the reckoning for a starting place. Fellow on-loan defenders Scott Wootton and Danny Higginbotham, midfielder Lewis McGugan and forwards Marcus Tudgay and Ishmael Miller are also vying for recalls along with Elokobi. Five victories and just two defeats in the last 10 Championship games have seen Forest edge clear of the drop zone. Another win at the weekend would put a nine-point gap between Steve Cotterill's side and Bristol City, who currently occupy the final relegation spot.
