The defender is banned while Preston must do without Callum Robinson.

Nottingham Forest continue to be without the suspended Tobias Figueiredo for Saturday’s visit of Preston.

The defender was sent off in last week’s 5-5 draw at Aston Villa and sits out the second of a three-match ban.

Danny Fox is still ruled out with a foot injury with Hillal Soudani (knee) remaining sidelined.

Forest are fifth in the Sky Bet Championship, five points behind the top two.

Preston’s top scorer Callum Robinson is sidelined after a hamstring operation last week.

He is likely to be out for a number of months and joins long-term casualties Billy Bodin and Josh Harrop (both knee), who are out for the season.

Sean Maguire (hamstring) and Daniel Johnson (thigh) are also still missing for boss Alex Neil.

Ben Pearson (thigh) and skipper Tom Clarke (broken nose) missed the 3-0 defeat at Birmingham and will be assessed.
