Nottingham Forest handed injury boost ahead of Chelsea FA Cup clash

Nottingham Forest head coach Sabri Lamouchi has provided an injury update to his squad ahead of the FA Cup clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

Chelsea host the Championship side in a repeat of the fixture at the same stage last season, and will be hoping for a repeat of the 2-0 victory.

Forest go into the match off the back of three league wins in a row, which has left them in fourth position in the Championship table.

And there is more good news for the side ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge, with Lamouchi confirming that defender Yuri Ribeiro could return for the match.
