Samba Sow has posted yet another update on his Instagram page, as the midfielder looks to make a long-awaited return to first-team action from injury.
The 30-year-old has made a positive impact since joining from Dinamo Moscow in the summer, producing a series of impressive performances in the middle of the park.
But the combative midfielder – who has made 10 appearances thus far this season – has been out of action since the start of October with a hamstring injury, sustained in the 1-0 win over Brentford.
Forest’s form has fluctuated since the victory over the Bees – Sabri Lamouchi’s side currently sit eighth in the Sky Bet Championship table after winning just one of their last six games.

Ahead of their trip to Huddersfield Town this weekend, Sow could well return for the Reds after featuring in an under-23s match last week.
Sow is back in training with the Reds, and the Mali international has recently took to Instagram to send a cryptic message to fans, which translates to “all for one and one for all”.
Having Sow back for the trip to Huddersfield before a hectic Christmas period could prove to be a massive boost for Forest.
Alfa Semedo and Ryan Yates have struggled to make a huge impact since returning from their spells on the sidelines, whereas Sow adds something different to the side.
The Reds have missed his power and presence in the middle of the park, and before he got injured, he formed a perfect midfield trio with Ben Watson and Tiago Silva.
Lamouchi won’t want to rush him, but if he features in any capacity this weekend, it could be a real boost.
