Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has an unchanged squad for the visit of Huddersfield.

Davies had a fully-fit group of players for his first game back as manager against Bolton on Saturday and that will be the case again on Tuesday night.

The Scot made three changes at the weekend from the team that started the 2-0 defeat to Bristol City.

With Dan Harding spending most of the week recovering from an injury he sustained at Ashton Gate, Chris Cohen played at left-back and Elliott Ward was recalled in central defence at the expense of Danny Collins.

Henri Lansbury took Cohen's place in midfield and Simon Cox came in for Dexter Blackstock.

Davies said: "Dan only started training on Thursday. He came off the previous Saturday after 46 minutes or so. He missed four or five days' training and then started again on Thursday.

"I've had a good quiet word in his ear about what the expectation now is from him. But I was delighted with Chris Cohen, I must admit. I thought he gave us a real captain's performance and showed the right application that's required to move this club forward.''

With Harding now ready to return, Davies must decide whether to stick with Cohen at full-back or move him back into midfield.

Mark Robins has no fresh injury or suspension concerns as he takes charge of his first league game as Huddersfield manager.

The former Coventry boss saw his new side slump to a 4-1 defeat against Premier League side Wigan in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday and could shuffle his pack in a bid to halt the Terriers' recent slide down the npower Championship table.

Second-half substitute Lee Novak scored his side's only goal on his return from a toe injury on Sunday, and could be in contention to start against Forest.

Long-term absentees Jermaine Beckford (hamstring), Keith Southern (Achilles) and Danny Ward (broken metatarsal) all remain sidelined as they continue to recover from their respective problems.
