Injury Sidelines Taiwo Awoniyi for Forest’s Premier League Opener
In a disappointing blow for Nottingham Forest fans, striker Taiwo Awoniyi is set to sit out their English Premier League season opener, MySportDab reports.
Forest’s head coach, Steve Cooper, confirmed this setback during the pre-match press conference for the highly anticipated clash that marks the commencement of the 2023/2024 English Premier League season.
Cooper delivered the update on the team’s available players, revealing that while Felipe’s presence is assured, Taiwo Awoniyi and Moussa are on the mend and inching their way back to training.
However, their recovery progress suggests that participating in the forthcoming game might be a premature endeavor.
The absence of Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi, who transferred to Nottingham Forest from Germany’s Union Berlin last summer, is noteworthy.
His contribution last season, which included 10 pivotal goals, was instrumental in securing the Reds’ spot in the Premier League.
A highlight of his performance was a critical goal against Arsenal towards the close of the 2022/2023 season, effectively securing Forest’s top-flight status while dashing the Gunners’ slim hopes of clinching the title.
While Awoniyi’s unfortunate injury setback casts a shadow on Forest’s opener, his compatriots Ola Aina and Emmanuel Dennis are anticipated to be in action.
Both players have actively participated in the club’s pre-season activities, rendering them fit and available for the crucial showdown.
The absence of Awoniyi will undoubtedly pose a challenge for Nottingham Forest as they gear up to take on Arsenal in their Premier League debut for the 2023/2024 season.
The team and fans alike will be hoping for a swift recovery for the talented striker, while Aina and Dennis will be expected to step up and make an impact on the pitch.
