Despite missing the last few matches through injury, Samba Sow has been one of the standout players for Nottingham Forest in the Championship so far this season.
The 30-year-old arrived at the City Ground in the summer and has played a key role in the Reds’ promising start to their Championship campaign under Sabri Lamouchi.
The defensive midfielder has made nine Championship appearances for Forest so far, although he’s not featured for the Reds since suffering a hamstring injury in the 1-0 win over Brentford in October.
He’s expected to return to action soon, but Lamouchi has confirmed that the Championship clash with Millwall this evening will come too soon for him.
Sow has now missed the last seven league matches for Forest, and if his latest social media post is anything to go by, he’s determined to make an impact when he does return to action.
The midfielder sent a message to Forest supporters on his personal Instagram account and added a message which translates to: “Everything comes to those who wait.”

Sow has been excellent for Forest so far this season and he’s really impressed me with how quickly he’s adapted to the Championship. He provides the Reds with some extra strength and tenacity in midfield that enables those around him to flourish.
Forest have really missed his presence in midfield over the past few matches and he’ll be a big miss for them tonight, against a very physical side in Millwall.
After spending the past few weeks on the sidelines, Sow will determined to make an impact when he does return to action and it’ll be a major boost for Lamouchi to have him available again.
