Swansea receive early boost ahead of Nottingham Forest clash

Published

on

Swansea City will be boosted by the return of Barrie McKay next weekend, with the winger set to be in contention to face Nottingham Forest after returning to training.  

McKay was forced to sit out of last weekend’s clash with Millwall, with the winger struggling with sickness.

However, Inside Wales Sport have confirmed that McKay is back in training, with the Scot expected to return after the international break to face Aitor Karanka’s Forest.

Coincidently, McKay was a summer signing from Nottingham Forest, with the 23-year-old only lasting a year at the City Ground.

During his 12 months with Forest, McKay made 26 Championship appearances, scoring five goals and registering seven assists in that short time.

However, following Karanka’s appointment, the winger found himself down the pecking order, and following a summer of change in Nottingham, he was moved on to Swansea.

For his new employers, McKay has featured on five occasions on their Championship return, already registering an assist for the Swans.

Swansea continued their fine start to the season against Millwall despite the absence of McKay.

Graham Potter’s 10-men battled back from going a goal down to beat the Lions 2-1.

The Verdict

Of course this is a boost for the Swans, as McKay is a player who has the ability to win a game.

Against Forest, he will be hoping to make a big impact and show Karanka what he has lost this summer.

However, a place in the starting XI might not be guaranteed, particularly after an extraordinary performance from Swansea against Millwall.
