Gino Padula returned to action today in Nottingham Forest reserves 3-3 draw away at Hartlepool. Padula signed on a free from Queens Park Rangers in the summer was ear marked by Megson to fill the left back role this season yet has hardly featured in what has been a frustrating time for the Argentinean.
He will now look to step up his fitness in the coming week or two in order to push Thompson for the left back position and hopefully show the forest fans some of the form that made him a ?Hoops? favourite.
