Former Nottingham Forest striker Robert Earnshaw visited the club’s training ground this morning ahead of this weekend’s game against Cardiff City. 

The 38-year-old, who was a prolific goalscorer for both the Reds and Cardiff, will be a guest at this weekend’s match between the two sides at the City Ground.

The Reds will be confident of picking up another three points on home soil.

Sabri Lamouchi’s men moved up to fourth in the Championship after they hammered 10-man Queens Park Rangers last night.

The Reds are now three points clear of Bristol City in seventh with a game in hand. Interestingly, the last time that the Reds finished in the play-offs was in Earnshaw’s last season at the club.

Earnshaw was on the books at the City Ground from 2008 until 2011, and the 38-year-old is currently building his experience up in coaching.

The Reds are scoring goals at the moment and have one of the best strikers in the division in Lewis Grabban, but Lamouchi’s side could do even more.

There’s no doubt that Lamouchi could do with another striker to offer competition to Grabban. If the eight-goal striker got injured, the Reds would only have Rafa Mir to call upon.

There has been a lot of speculation about who the Reds may target in January. Newcastle United’s Dwight Gayle is a name which refuses to go away.

Since Earnshaw has been pictured at the club’s training ground, a number of Nottingham Forest supporters have shared their excitement about the club legend making a return.

‘Lethal’, ‘Talented’

Some supporters have even posed the question about whether he’d be willing to return to the City Ground as a coach:
