Dean Henderson has posted an emotional message to Nottingham Forest supporters ahead of tonight’s game against Southampton.

The Reds face a must-win clash with the Premier League’s bottom club and the stakes couldn’t be higher.

If Forest do get beaten tonight their chances of surviving in the division look very bleak, to say the least.

Henderson won’t be in action this evening. He’s now been ruled out for the season with the thigh injury sustained in January.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper made 20 appearances for the Reds and kept six clean sheets for the club.

Steve Cooper has raved about him on several occasions this season and he will be gutted regarding his injury.

Forest staying up would surely throw them into the race to sign Henderson on a permanent basis.

He will be available for transfer in the summer, with Manchester United looking to add a new stopper.

Henderson will be firmly behind his teammates tonight when Southampton arrive at the City Ground.

Ahead of the game, he’s posted six words on Twitter to get the fans going in preparation for tonight’s game.

He said: “Everyone together! Come on you reds.”

Henderson has posted a message to Forest supporters

The goalkeeper is a huge miss for Forest going into the final four games of the campaign.

Nothing against Keylor Navas who has deputised for Henderson well but the United man’s character is missed.

He clearly loves playing for the club and he’ll be devastated not to get another run out in front of the fans.

Forest might have another chance to see him in action but it will be dependent on Premier League survival.

Tonight is a huge night for Forest and the supporters. Henderson will be rooting for his team from the bench and this message should rouse the fan base.
