Nottingham Forest will be without Eric Lichaj and Nathaniel Chalobah when they resume Sky Bet Championship action against Bournemouth at the City Ground.
Right-back Lichaj, an ever present for Forest so far in the league, received his fifth yellow card of the season prior to the international break as the Reds won 3-1 at Brighton, which is likely to open the door for Gonzalo Jara Reyes to make his first league appearance of the campaign.
On-loan Chelsea midfielder Chalobah is also banned after he was sent off in against Albion and Guy Moussi could be recalled to replace the England Under-21 international.
Defender Kelvin Wilson is still rated as 'touch and go' to recover from the back injury he suffered against Middlesbrough last month so Danny Collins looks likely to keep his place in the team.
Welsh midfield duo Shaun MacDonald and Jack Collison look set to return to contention for Bournemouth.
The pair were both missing from Chris Coleman's squad with knee injuries but they were reintroduced to training this week and could face Nottingham Forest.
Scotland Under-21 winger Ryan Fraser also pulled out of international duty and his hamstring issue will be assessed but defender Charlie Daniels is improving and top scorer Lewis Grabban (both heel) should be able to feature.
Goalkeeper Darryl Flahavan's quadriceps tear will keep him out for three or four weeks while long-term injury victims Joe Partington (leg) and Wes Fogden (hernia) are both close to returning to training.
