Nottingham Forest handed injury boost with Harry Toffolo update

Nottingham Forest have had their fair share of injury problems over the Premier League season so far, however, now a new update has emerged on a player who could be returning to action for the Tricky Trees.

What’s the latest?

Forest left-back Harry Toffolo took to his personal Instagram account to confirm that he is back in training with a picture of himself alongside his teammates captioned – “so good to be back”.

Who did Forest sign Stan Collymore from in 1993?

The former Huddersfield Town ace suffered a hamstring injury back in October during a substitute appearance against Brighton and Hove Albion, with Steve Cooper revealing (via Nottinghamshire Live):

“Harry is injured. He picked up a hamstring injury, unfortunately, which will rule him out for a little while.”

Fantastic news for Cooper

There is no doubt that the return of Toffolo is fantastic news for Steve Cooper, who will be preparing his team for their return to action against Manchester United at Old Trafford after Christmas.

Nottingham Forest are in desperate need to pick up vital points in their pursuit to retain their top-flight status as they have spent the majority of their campaign in the relegation zone.

Despite the slow start from the Garibaldi, they did have a good run of form ahead of the World Cup break, picking up points in four of their last five Premier League fixtures and are now just one point away from climbing out of the bottom three.

As a result, the return of Toffolo will be warmly welcomed at The City Ground as the summer-signed full-back has been a consistent and reliable player in his role on the left flank when he has been available.

Over eight league appearances, the 27-year-old has won 54% of his ground and aerial duels combined, as well as averaging one tackle, 2.4 clearances and 41.5 touches per game.

Should Toffolo start against Man United?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With that being said, Cooper will be glad that another player has returned from recovery to give him depth and options over the second half of the season and the manager will be hoping that having the availability in his team can make a positive impact in their Premier League campaign.
