Nottingham Forest striker Rob Earnshaw faces a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury on international duty.

Earnshaw suffered a calf injury during training for Wales' World Cup qualifier with Finland last week.

The former Derby hit-man has undergone scans on the injury and Forest boss Billy Davies expects the player to be missing for up to a month.

It means Earnshaw will miss this weekend's big game with Championship leaders Newcastle.
