Nottingham Forest striker Taiwo Awoniyi faces another potential spell on the sidelines after he has withdrawn from international duty with Nigeria over a groin issue according to the Nigerian FA.
The news will be a huge concern to Nottingham Forest with the striker only recently returning from a similar injury. Awoniyi has scored four goals and provided two assists for Steve Cooper’s side so far this season.
But the 26-year-old may now be facing another spell on the sidelines after his withdrawal from the Nigeria squad.
“Taiwo Awoniyi has left for his base due to pain in the groin and returns to England tonight after discussions between his club doctors and Super Eagles medical team,” a statement from the Nigerian FA said.
Forest will be sweating over Awoniyi’s fitness ahead of their next Premier League clash on Saturday, November 25. The Reds take on Brighton at the City Ground before another game at home when they face Everton a week later.
