Joe Worrall insists it “won’t be long” before he makes a full return to first-team action, after enduring a tricky spell on the sidelines through injury.
Worrall was a key player for Forest under Sabri Lamouchi last season, but the start of this season has proved to be disappointing for the defender.
The 23-year-old has made only two appearances so far this season, and hasn’t featured since the second game of the season against Cardiff City.

The centre-half was recently ruled out for around six to seven weeks after sustaining a foot injury in training, and he is yet to feature under new manager Chris Hughton.
Forest have started to pick up under Hughton, and have gone unbeaten in their first three games under the 61-year-old.
Scott McKenna and Tobias Figueiredo have been Forest’s preferred defensive pairing under Hughton, but Worrall has now took to Instagram to say it “won’t be long” before he is back out on the pitch.
It will be hard for Worrall to break back into the team at this rate.
McKenna has been solid since joining from Aberdeen, whilst Figueiredo is also improving alongside the Scotland international.
Worrall is a very solid player, though, and he will be keen to make an impact under Hughton as soon as possible after a disappointing start to the season thus far.
