Nottingham Forest are set to be without influential midfielder Kris Commons for up to two months.

Commons picked up an ankle ligament injury playing in Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Yeovil. After the match scans revealed the extent of the injury.

Manager Gary Megson said: "Kris will be out for six to eight weeks but he's a quick heeler and hopefully we'll get him back earlier.

"Any team would miss a player of his quality - let alone a team at the level we're at.

"He has been involved in the vast majority of the goals we have scored this season but these things happen - hopefully another player will emerge from the squad and take up the mantle."
