Nottingham Forest are waiting to discover the extent of the injury Simon Cox picked up while on international duty with the Republic of Ireland.Cox limped out of last night’s friendly defeat by Greece in Dublin on the hour mark with a foot injury.
He’s due back in Nottingham this morning when Forest’s medical staff will get to work assessing the extent of the setback and ascertain whether he’s a doubt for Saturday’s home date with Sheffield Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Adlene Guedioura’s Algeria were beaten 1-0 by Bosnia and Herzegovina in a friendly in Algiers last night.
