Ipswich without Adam Webster for televised clash against Nottingham Forest

Ipswich will be without centre-back Adam Webster because of a hamstring problem for the televised Sky Bet Championship clash against Nottingham Forest.

Teenager Josh Emmanuel, who recently signed a contract extension with the Suffolk club, is expected to come into the side at right-back with captain Luke Chambers moving across into the heart of the defence.

Town boss Mick McCarthy expects to have all the players who were away on international duty available for selection and could also include 18-year-old midfielder Kundai Benyu in the squad for the first time this season after he impressed for the under-23s.

Midfielder Luke Hyam (knee), defender Tommy Smith (back) and striker Brett Pitman (ankle) all continue their rehabilitation along with long-term absentee Giles Coke following knee surgery.

Daniel Pinillos is fit to replace the suspended Hildeberto Pereira in Nottingham Forest's squad.

Pereira starts a three-match ban this weekend, leaving Pinillos, Armand Traore and Danny Fox all in line to slot in at full-back.

Traore is expected to beat knee trouble to be available, with Fox having recovered from illness.

Pinillos has finally beaten the knee ligament trouble that has kept him sidelined since December 2015. Mustapha Carayol (hamstring), Nicklas Bendtner (ankle) and David Vaughan (ribs) all remain doubtful for the Portmand Road trip.
