Squads for today's game

Last updated : 23 August 2003 By Michael Morris

Nottingham Forest
(from) Ward, Louis-Jean, Morgan, Walker, Thompson, Stewart, Gunnarson, Williams, Jess, Reid, Johnson, Harewood, Roche, Sonner, Dawson, Doig, Bopp.

Cardiff City
(from) Alexander, Weston, Vidmar, Gabbidon, Barker, Boland, Kavanagh, Bonner, Robinson, Whalley, Langley, Earnshaw, Campbell, Lee, Thorne, Bowen, Collins, Margetson.

Peter Thorne's two goals for the reserves in midweek has seen him come back into an 18 squad. A place on the bench is his best hope today. The City line up is expected to be the same as the one that lost to Bradford last saturday.

Thorne said

"Physically, I feel OK. I feel quite strong. If I am needed towards the end of the Forest game, then I will give it my best shot. I will be disappointed if I'm not in the squad. But the manager has been involved in the game long enough to know if someone is fit enough or not."
