Reporter shares fresh update on Lewis Grabban ahead of Nottingham Forest’s trip to Blackpool

NottinghamshireLive reporter Sarah Clapson says that the upcoming game v Blackpool ‘comes a little bit too soon’ for striker Lewis Grabban.

Grabban, 34, has missed almost two months of action with an ankle injury. The striker has scored 12 goals in 27 league outings for Nottingham Forest this season and his absence has been a huge blow for Steve Cooper – but his return will prove to be a huge boost.

Several updates have been shared on Grabban who is seemingly nearing his return to action.

But in a recent Q&A, NottinghamshireLive reporter Clapson suggested that this weekend’s game v Blackpool will come too early for Grabban, writing:

“Grabban is the closest. It was hoped he’d be back soon after the international break, although it may be that Blackpool comes a little bit too soon.

“We’ll get an update from the manager later this week, in his pre-match press conference. But the last we heard was that Grabban was on track, with early April the kind of time frame for a return.”

The run-in…

Having Grabban back in time for the season finale will be a huge boost for Forest.

Now in his fourth season with Forest, Grabban has scored an impressive 54 league goals in that time. He netted just six in the Championship last season in what was a dire campaign for the whole team under Chris Hughton, with Grabban in particular coming under scrutiny.

But the arrival of Cooper has helped Grabban and many more Forest players return to form – despite turning 34 earlier this year, Grabban has showed no signs of slowing down and his goals this season have certainly helped Forest climb the table.

If he can return before the end of the season, it’ll give Forest a greater chance of promotion to the Premier League.
