Scott McKenna is “unlikely” to feature for Nottingham Forest against Norwich City this evening due to an ankle problem.
McKenna returned to the starting line-up against Reading at the weekend, but came off at half-time after tweaking his ankle.
He now looks set to miss out for the Reds tonight, with Chris Hughton revealing the news in his pre-match press conference.
The Scotland international has been a key player since Chris Hughton arrived at the City Ground, and has been a standout performer in defence.
Tobias Figueiredo’s form has gone downhill this season, however he was back to his best alongside Joe Worrall in defence against Watford.
Loic Mbe Soh has also had to be patient when it has come to waiting for a first-team spot, with fans vying for him to start tonight.
Here, we take a look at Forest fans’ reactions, with McKenna set to miss out at Carrow Road later on this evening…

If Figs starts…… I think I’ll cry!

Sure Mbe Soh has to be given a run??

More likely pretending to be injured so he don’t have to play

Surely it's time to play Dawson or Soh?
