Simon Cox is hoping his powers of recovery will see him making a quicker than anticipated return to action with Nottingham Forest.The Republic of Ireland striker has missed three games after suffering a foot injury in last month’s win over Wolves at Molineux.
A ligament became detached from a bone in his foot and with it came a piece of a bone.
It was originally anticipated that he could be sidelined for up to two months but Cox is making excellent progress.
He told us: “I feel good, I’m progressing day by day and hopefully it won’t be too much longer.
“I’ve been away for a week and a bit of warm weather has helped me. I’m not on crutches any more or using the air cast boot – I’m walking around pain-free.
“I’m quite fortunate in so much that I seem to recover from injuries pretty quickly but I know I need to get my ankle right before I really push on.
“It’s a case of so far so good but I don’t want to rush things and jeopardise the way things have gone.”
