Nottm Forest v Derby preview

Team news ahead of Sunday's Championship clash between Nottingham Forest and Derby at the City Ground (kick-off 1.15pm).

Jermaine Jenas is set to be included in the Forest squad after rejoining his hometown club on a month's loan from Tottenham as he looks to regain his fitness following a series of injury problems in recent years.

On-loan Chelsea full-back Sam Hutchinson (knee) and midfielder Adlene Guedioura (ban) are out.

Derby are expected to make the short trip along the A52 with an unchanged squad.

The Rams reported no new problems following the 2-1 home defeat to Burnley.

However, teenage striker Mason Bennett's hopes of winning back a place in the squad were scuppered last weekend when he suffered a knock while playing for the Under-18s.

Mark O'Brien resumed full training last week following a lengthy absence with a knee injury but the defender is not yet ready to be considered for a first-team return.

Defender James O'Connor, midfielder Michael Jacobs and attackers Nathan Tyson, Theo Robinson and Conor Doyle are options for manager Nigel Clough should he wish to make changes to his starting line-up at the City Ground.

The Rams recorded a first league double over their East Midlands rivals in 40 years last season, winning 2-1 at Forest and 1-0 in the return fixture at Pride Park.
