Injury boost: Nottingham Forest star spotted in training after injury setback

Nottingham Forest striker Taiwo Awoniyi appears to be on the mend after being pictured on the turf. The Nigerian was ruled out for a month after suffering a new injury against Crystal Palace.

The 26-year-old is critical to how Steve Cooper wants his club to play. Awoniyi scored in all three of the first three games of the 2023/24 season, tying the Premier League record for most consecutive games scored at one point.

His injury comes at a time when Forest are attempting to construct a stable squad. As a result, the Reds will be hoping that his return to the field provides good news regarding his injuries.

Awoniyi spotted back in training

The athlete does not appear to be back in full contact training just yet, but this is a positive indication. Cooper will want Awoniyi back as soon as possible because he is an important member of the Forest team.

Awoniyi can be seen jogging alongside the action in a recent video shared by the club behind the scenes of a training session. It’s a solid step in the right direction, and maybe he’ll be able to get back on track soon.

Awoniyi’s game is all-action and he has picked up a couple of niggles since signing for Forest. The team’s form has dropped off when he’s not played and the Reds will hope that isn’t the case this time around.

Forest well-stocked but they need Awoniyi back

Chris Wood and Divock Origi are two players who were signed to provide backup to Awoniyi. The Nigerian will be the number one striker at the club but there are options available to Cooper now.

However, the guy who was dubbed ‘exceptional’ by Steve Hodge earlier this season is a huge asset to Forest. He’s a tough player who has often shown that he knows where the net is.

Awoniyi is certainly making significant progress despite his latest injury setback. Hopefully, the striker will be back on the pitch at the Garibaldi and torturing defenders in the Premier League soon.
