Super Eagles and Nottingham Forest striker Taiwo Awoniyi looks to be on track to return to action after being spotted back on the grass. The Nigerian missed the trip to Crystal Palace with a new injury and has been ruled out for a month.

The 26-year-old is integral to the way in which Steve Cooper wants his team to play. Awoniyi scored in all three of the first three games of the 2023/24 campaign and was on for the Premier League record of scoring in consecutive games at one stage.

His injury comes at a time when Forest are striving to get a settled side assembled. As a result, the Reds will hope that the fact he’s been spotted back on the grass is good news regarding his injury.

It would seem as though the player is not quite back in full contact training just yet but this is definitely a good sign. Awoniyi is a vital part of the Forest team and Cooper will want him back as soon as possible

During a recent video posted behind the scenes of a training session by the club, Awoniyi can clearly be seen doing some running next to the action. It’s a positive step in the right direction and hopefully, he can get back on the ball soon.

Awoniyi’s game is all-action and he has picked up a couple of niggles since signing for Forest. The team’s form has dropped off when he’s not played and the Reds will hope that isn’t the case this time around.

Chris Wood and Divock Origi are two players who were signed to provide backup to Awoniyi. The Nigerian will be the number one striker at the club but there are options available to Cooper now

The player who was called ‘extraordinary’ by Steve Hodge earlier this season is a massive asset to Forest though. He’s an uncompromising player and he’s proven time and time again that he knows where the net is.

Awoniyi is clearly making good progress with his latest injury setback. Hopefully, the striker can be back on the pitch in the Garibaldi and tormenting defenders once again in the Premier League. Awoniyi’s return will not only be a plus for Forest but also for Super Eagles ahead of forthcoming world cup qualifiers next month. The former Union Berlin ace was left out of the double header friendly against Saudi Arabia played Friday and today’s tie against Mozambique.
