Nottingham Forest are set to return to Championship action this weekend as they take on Bristol City at Ashton Gate. 

One player who will be looking forward to the game even more than most is 31-year-old winger Albert Adomah.

Adomah enjoyed a three-year spell with the Robins earlier in his career, and was a popular figure with the club’s supporters. He made 136 appearances, netting 17 goals in the process.

Now 31-years-old, the experienced winger is challenging for promotion to the Premier League with the Reds. He’ll be hoping he can force his way into Sabri Lamouchi’s starting line-up for this game.

Coming up against his former club is unlikely to phase him. He has already returned to Ashton Gate with both Middlesbrough and Aston Villa.

The Reds are currently sat just above the Robins in the Championship. Adomah admits that it’ll be a difficult challenge but is confident the Reds can return to Nottingham with all three points.

He told the club’s official site: “Bristol City will be a tough challenge as they are doing well.

“We are on the same points so we have to be careful; there are no easy games in the Championship.

“I had a great three seasons there and I was appreciated by the supporters, the downside was obviously getting relegated with them but it is a tremendous club.”

Whether or not Adomah is able to force his way into Lamouchi’s thoughts for this game remains to be seen.

Lamouchi has tended to favour Sammy Ameobi and Joe Lolley out wide this season. Adomah has largely had to settle for making an impact off the bench.

That being said, when he has been given an opportunity, he’s largely impressed.

He has made 16 appearances for the Reds so far, netting three goals in the process. Considering most of these appearances have come off the bench, that isn’t a bad record.

Lamouchi may be tempted to start the winger given he has the added incentive of facing his former club.

It’ll be interesting to see what starting line-up he does decide to go with.
