Nottingham Forest striker Lewis Grabban could be set for another spell on the sidelines following a 1-0 win for the Reds over Peterborough United.

The Reds talisman looked in some pain as he left the turf at London Road to be replaced by Cafu.

Grabban has only recently made a return to the first-team fold at the City Ground following a two-month layoff with an ankle injury.

The Forest ace has scored 13 goals this season and at 34 he is still capable of doing a job for the Reds if called upon.

With the Reds set to confirm a place in the Championship’s top-six, they can ill-afford any further injuries to their attacking ranks.

After the game, Steve Cooper was quizzed on the experienced performer and at this stage, there isn’t really any news regarding Grabban.

He told Nottinghamshire Live: “I don’t know yet, to be honest. We’ll check him out when we get back.

“He was clear straight away that he needed to come off. We’ve got our fingers crossed.”

Grabban has scored over 50 goals during his time at the City Ground and on his day, he’s capable of being a decent goalscorer at Championship level.

Forest will need Grabban for the run-in

Some harsh critics will tell you that the striker is finished and he has missed some good chances since returning from his last injury.

Ultimately, however, with Forest already missing Keinan Davis, the Reds can ill-afford any more injury concerns.

Grabban is a proven striker and he has the experience of promotion quests that can benefit Forest between now and the end of the season.

It seems almost certain that the Reds can count on Grabban to come up trumps again between now and the end of the season.

As a result, Forest supporters will be keeping everything crossed that his latest injury isn’t serious.
