Samba Sow has promised to come back stronger after the Nottingham Forest midfielder was forced off with an injury on Saturday.

Samba Sow has taken to Twitter to thank the Forest fans for their messages of support, and insist that he plans to come back stronger. According to the Nottingham Post, the midfielder’s injury is a hamstring injury, rather than a knee injury as initially feared.

Sow was replaced during the latter stages of Saturday’s 1-0 win against Brentford at the City Ground. He immediately made his way down the tunnel, and given how well he has performed this season, there would have been plenty of nervous Forest supporters hoping that the treatment was more of a precaution.

Unfortunately, Sabri Lamouchi has since confirmed to the Nottingham Post that Sow is likely to be out for a while, meaning that he may miss the next few games after the international break.

Blow

Sow is expected to have an appointment for a magnetic resonance imaging scan at the club on either Tuesday or Wednesday next week. And the midfielder has now taken to social media to post a message in response to the support he has received…

 

There’s no doubt that this injury could be a considerable blow for the Reds. It was arguably the only negative coming away from Saturday’s game. Sow has been keeping the likes of John Bostock and Alfa Semedo out of the starting line-up.

His performances may have dipped slightly against Blackburn Rovers and at the weekend against Brentford, but he’s undoubtedly been one of Lamouchi’s standout performers this season. Lamouchi may now face a tricky decision regarding who will play in midfield against Wigan Athletic after the international break.
