Nottingham Forest boss happy with Awoniyi’s return from injury

 Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper, has reflected on Taiwo Awoniyi’s return from injury.

The Nigeria international has been missing in action for a number of weeks due to groin injury.

The 26-year-old came on as a substitute in the second half of Forest’s 3-0 defeat to Liverpool at the Anfield on Sunday.

Cooper said having a focal point upfront is big boost for the club.

“With the changes of Taiwo coming on, he was only supposed to give us some minutes, but we gave him a bit more,” the gaffer told Forest TV.

“Just having a number 9 on the pitch looked a bit more normal, looked a bit more natural.

“If Wood played today or Divock, they just know the role and then Anthony goes into the normal position and Morgan can connect.”

Awoniyi has scored three goals in five league appearances for the Tricky Trees this season
