Martin Paterson, who has been struggling with illness, was left out of the matchday squad against Wigan at the weekend but is expected to return to the fold.
Fellow striker James Vaughan returned from a knee injury last time out and is in contention to start once again.
Adam Hammill (knee) and Jonathan Hogg (hip) also recovered in time to face Latics and are likely to play some part against Forest.
