Striker Matt Tubbs returns to the Salisbury City squad for Sunday’s televised second round FA Cup home clash against Nottingham Forest after completing a two-match suspension.But the Whites are without former Bristol Rovers player Jon Beswetherick (knee injury) and influential player-coach Tommy Widdrington. There will also be late fitness tests for Scott Bartlett (knee) and Alex Haddow (calf), but manager Nick Holmes expects both to be available.

Holmes and Widdrington took the opportunity to watch Nottingham Forest in their midweek Johnstone’s Paint quarter-final defeat to Bristol City.

Holmes said: ‘It gave us the chance to see a couple of things we may be able to exploit.

‘We have kept to our normal routine in training this week and the lads are all buoyed up for the game, which will be played in front of a capacity crowd.’
