Current Nottingham Forest news as Steve Cooper’s team gets ready for their Premier League matchup against the Hatters

Nottingham Forest’s next game following the international break is a matchup with recently promoted Luton Town.

With eight games played, the Reds have nine points, good for 13th place in the Premier League standings. They have started the season with a lot of potential and want to get off to a

But on Saturday (3pm kickoff), Steve Cooper’s team will be keen to get back to winning ways. After recording back-to-back draws before to the campaign’s pause, they had gone four games without winning.

It was believed by Forest that the hiatus would allow some of their wounded players to heal. Even though head coach Cooper is known for being reticent when it comes to discussing players’ availability, he did not provide a very encouraging update during his pre-match press conference.

Right now, the hosts might not have enough full-backs. Prior to the match, Gonzalo Montiel, who was serving with Argentina, was scheduled to undergo an evaluation due to a calf ailment. Furthermore, Cooper did not reveal much about Serge Aurier’s chances of playing after he was substituted during the 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace.

Despite being sidelined due to a groin issue, Taiwo Awoniyi is reportedly “progressing well” in his recuperation. Cooper said that nothing had changed in relation to Ola Aina, Nuno Tavares, Danilo, and Felipe—all of whom have been sidelined.

On the other hand, Moussa Niakhate, the center defender, will be back available. He was sent off against Brentford and was suspended for the trip to Selhurst Park.

Cooper also mentioned that Andrew Omobamidele, who was signed on deadline day, would make his debut soon, even if it seems unlikely he would start. Since leaving Norwich City, he has not yet been included in the starting lineup, but he is reportedly performing well in training.

“Everyone should know that we’re really happy with Andrew,” Cooper remarked. And he’s done a fantastic job adjusting. I believe it will not be long until we see him or get the chance to play with him.

Cooper commented on the challenge Luton will present: “They have guys who can change the way they play. It’s a match where everything needs to be at an extremely high standard, as it usually is in the Premier League.

“We must put our own needs first. Now that everyone has returned from their overseas assignments and without their usual preparation, we must make sure we swiftly catch up. There can be no justifications for this. In order to make the desired impact, we aim to start the game strong.
