Nottingham Forest beat Brentford last Saturday to go second in the Championship heading into the latest international break.

The Reds beat the Bees last week thanks to a Ben Watson strike and things are looking extremely positive at the City Ground.

One negative from last weekend was the injury picked up by Samba Sow. The midfield maestro hobbled off in last week’s contest and the Reds must now wait for the results of a scan.

Although there is no official update on the damage done to Sow’s hamstring, he has taken to Instagram to post a somewhat cryptic message:

« On ne lutte pas contre la force du destin »

A post shared by Samba Sow (@sambasow89) on Oct 11, 2019 at 5:43am PDT

The caption alongside his Instagram post translates to: We do not fight against the force of destiny.

A message of such nature is bound to cause some supporters to become intrigued. It does perhaps suggest that Sow’s injury is worst than first feared.

Unlike previous seasons when Forest have picked up injuries, the squad is well stocked these days – especially in the middle of the park.

John Bostock, Tiago Silva and Alfa Semedo would all be capable of filling in for Sow should this latest social media post suggest that he is to be missing for a prolonged period of time.

Sow signed from Dinamo Moscow for £640,000 (Nottinghamshire Live) in the summer and he has looked like a tremendous piece of business during his nine league appearances to date.

Forest will now await official confirmation but this latest post perhaps suggests that the prognosis of his injury isn’t positive.
