Samba Sow will be looking to make a full return from injury sooner rather than later, as he looks to reclaim his spot in the Nottingham Forest starting line-up.
The 30-year-old has established himself as one of the Reds’ most important players this season, since arriving at the City Ground from Dinamo Moscow in the summer.
The combative midfielder has made 10 appearances for Sabri Lamouchi’s side thus far this term, but hasn’t featured for the Reds since the start of October in the aftermath of the 1-0 win over Brentford.
Forest haven’t struggled in Sow’s absence in terms of results, but at times, they have missed the Mali international’s drive and power in the middle of the park.
Lamouchi has revealed that both Sow and Alfa Semedo are likely to return after the international break, and are set to return to training imminently.
And taking to his Instagram story, Sow has delivered a motivational message to fans as his return to first-team action looms.
Forest return to league action with a trip to Ashton Gate, to face promotion rivals Bristol City next weekend.
It will be a massive boost for Forest and Lamouchi to have Sow back in action, as he has been a revelation since arriving on Trentside.
He is a brute and a powerhouse on the ball, but he is also very technical and is a useful player to have in the middle of the park.
They have so many options in midfield now, especially with Ryan Yates becoming a regular since he’s returned from injury. He will be eager to keep his place in the team.
