Nottingham Forest's Ishmael Miller is likely to be sidelined until December after having a hernia operation.

The 24-year-old striker has been playing with the problem in recent weeks but hoped to delay an operation until the international break.

Miller had to pull out of Tuesday's win over Reading after the injury failed to settle following Saturday's defeat against Hull City.

But it is hoped he will be back in good time for the Christmas programme.
