One of Forest's longest-serving players, club captain Cohen was dealt another huge blow when he picked up the third serious knee injury of his career in September 2014’s East Midlands derby.

The news that he would miss the remainder of the campaign was devastating for the club, while Cohen was left to face another long rehabilitation process after sustaining similar injuries in September 2011 and November 2013.

Cohen is expected to be available again for pre-season 2015-16, when he will look to emulate the way he handled his first return in 2012-13. He played 40 times and scooped his second Forest Player of the Year award, the first coming in 2008-09.

His versatility saw him switch from central midfield to left back in 2013-14 but he was favoured in the middle when he was available for selection earlier this season.

A firm fans' favourite due to his terrific consistency and work rate, Cohen started his career with West Ham, making 18 appearances for the Hammers before moving permanently to Yeovil in 2006 following a successful loan spell.

He helped the Glovers reach the final of the League One play-offs the following season - at the expense of Forest in the semi-finals - but was excited by the prospect of furthering his career with The Reds, completing his City Ground switch in July 2007.
