Nottingham Forest assistant manager Steve Wigley says the club's injury crisis is beginning to ease.
Speaking to Forest Player following tonight's 2-1 win over York City
, Wigley admitted that a number of players are nearing a return to first-team action.
He said: "Chris Cohen, Eric Lichaj, Jamaal Lascelles and Jack Hobbs are all back in training now. That has really provided us with a massive boost and it will be great to have those players back again.
"With a positive performance tonight and a good win under our belts, things are starting to look much brighter. It has been a difficult time for us but the injuries are clearing up now."
Goals from Jamie Mackie and Simon Cox handed the Reds a pre-season friendly victory at Bootham Crescent and Wigley was delighted with a second-half display which saw Forest come from a goal down to win.
He said: "It has been a very positive night for us. I thought we were excellent in the second half. We created a number of good chances and Jamie and Coxy took their goals very well.
"We knew we'd face a physical battle here but it was great for us to play on a good surface against an excellent side. Now it is about continuing that progression into the West Brom game on Saturday."
