Henri Lansbury is an injury doubt for Nottingham Forest ahead of the visit of promotion rivals Brighton.

Lansbury is nursing shin and calf problems sustained while on international duty with the England Under-21 squad.

However, with Lewis McGugan, Guy Moussi, Jonathan Greening and Simon Gillett all pushing for starting roles against the Seagulls, manager Billy Davies will not be short of midfield options should the former Arsenal trainee miss out.

Goalkeeper Khaled Al Rashidi (back), defenders Dan Harding (calf) and Daniel Ayala (hamstring) and striker Marcus Tudgay (broken collarbone) have all resumed training after injury and are available for selection.

Davies' side are looking to secure a seventh successive win which would equal a club record set back in 1921.
