Tony Mowbray has named two changes to the side for today's encounter against Nottingham Forest at The City Ground.

Both alterations are enforced, with Craig Conway out due to a thigh strain and Harrison Reed picking up a hamstring injury in training earlier in the week.

That means that Adam Armstrong returns on the right wing, with Corry Evans coming into the side to partner Lewis Travis in the heard of midfield.

Derrick Williams makes his 250th club career appearance, partnering Darragh Lenihan at the back, and Mowbray is boosted by Charlie Mulgrew returning to the squad, with the Scotland international available as a substitute.

Joe Rothwell makes his third successive start and will join Armstrong and Bradley Dack in a three behind frontman Danny Graham.

Former Forest frontman Ben Brereton, like Mulgrew, is an option off the bench if needed in his first return to The City Ground since departing for Rovers in the summer.

The hosts include playmaker Joe Lolley in their starting lineup, with the experienced Jack Colback captaining the Reds.
