Forest will be close to full strength

Cooper – who has done a brilliant job – since bringing the east midlands outfit into the Premier League – declared that he hadn’t any fresh injuries and that a couple of lads returned  to training. He said he hadn’t had the best of times with injuries over the past month or so, but some had returned to training. adding the only player whop had not trained was Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Meanwhile, David Moyes‘ only concern is captain Kurt Zouma and claimed that it was too early to make a decision on the player but that he will be checking with the medics on Saturday. Beyond that it looks likely the Irons will line up in much the same way as they did for the match against Olympiacos.
