Nottingham Forest midfielder Samba Sow could be edging closer to a return to full fitness following a provocative post on his Instagram story.

The midfielder hobbled out of the win against Brentford at the start of October and missed the defeats to Wigan Athletic and Hull City.


Forest’s midfield maestro has been sorely missed and his presence back in the team would be a massive boost for boss Sabri Lamouchi.

The 31-year-old has been a revelation since signing from Dinamo Moscow and he took to Instagram to update the club’s supporters on how his hamstring is progressing:

The tough-tackling performer has been arguably Forest’s best player so far this season. A long-term injury would have been seriously detrimental to the club’s campaign.

With the games coming thick and fast after the forthcoming international break, Forest need to ensure their best players are wrapped in cotton wool somewhat.

Sow was an unknown quantity when he checked in at the City Ground. Signing for just £640,000 (Nottinghamshire Live) he has looked like a real steal, however, helping Forest to a solid start to the 2019/20 campaign.

A man-mountain of a midfielder Forest would love to see their key man return for the trip to Luton Town on Saturday; although it would seem unlikely that he will start the game.

The Reds saw their game with Reading called off on Saturday due to a waterlogged pitch. In hindsight that has helped Forest get the likes of Sow and Michael Dawson who is also injured at present recover accordingly.
