Forest could be boosted by return of defensive duo
DANIEL Ayala and Dan Harding could both be fit to face Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow.
The Nottingham Forest defenders have both been back in training following hamstring problems.
And manager Sean O'Driscoll admits he could have a difficult decision to make, having spoken about the need for consistency in his back four.
"They have to be 100% fit to start the game and Ayala is probably closer to that than Harding," said O'Driscoll.

"But if we do that, if we do bring people back, we are changing the back four again. We have a decision to make. Ayala has trained all week, but he is not entirely comfortable with his hamstring.
"We will give him an injection, just to put him at ease. He has no problem with the injury, he is just suffering a little pain.
"He will come back into the squad. Dan (Harding) has been back out there training as well. When you have as few defenders as we have, having somebody on the bench that you can throw on if need be is a big plus."
Forest should also have striker Simon Cox available, despite seeing him pick up a foot injury in Ireland's friendly defeat against Greece.
"Simon is okay," said O'Driscoll. "Twitter can be a pain in the backside, but it can also be a useful tool to get information really quickly – and his communication with the medical staff suggests that he should be okay.
"He will have an x-ray as a precaution. But the message from him was that it should be okay.
"It is the same issue he has been carrying for some time. He has just had a kick on it. It is not as if you can avoid that when you are a professional footballer."
And the goal for O'Driscoll tomorrow is clear.
"Leicester becomes a fantastic point, if we get a win on Saturday," he said. "We need to be more consistent and to cut out the goals we conceded at Leicester."
