Nottingham Forest have received a huge injury boost concerning midfielder Samba Sow.

The former Mali international has been out of action due to a knee injury and fans believed his absence was a huge blow.

Sow has been a crucial player for us this season with 18 appearances alongside captain Ben Watson in the middle of the park. He initially picked up the injury during our side’s 2-2 draw against West Bromwich Albion and has missed the four games following that, where we only won once.

With Sow playing, we have averaged 2.17 points per game in the Championship and have lost just once against Huddersfield during a 2-1 defeat before Christmas.

Nevertheless, Forest posted an update on Sow’s injury with the midfielder working out in the gym, doing squats, leg presses and resistance band work.

Is Samba Sow our best player?





We are currently fifth in the Championship table, five points clear of Bristol City outside the Play-off places and 10 points behind West Brom in the automatic promotion places. Because of the fact there is so much for us to play for this season, getting Sow back will be a huge boost for us. However, the campaign is currently on hold due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with no games due to take place until at least 30th April.

There is no doubt when he returns, he will go straight back into the first team.

The City Ground faithful have felt his absence since he has been out of the side and will hopefully see an improvement of our recent form with the Malian in the middle of the park.
