Nottingham Forest defender Kelvin Wilson is ‘feeling good’ ahead of tonight's trip to Wigan Athletic.
The centre back has been in impressive form since returning from a lengthy lay-off and is showing encouraging signs of putting his injury misfortune behind him.
He has come through four matches in ten days unscathed after stepping in for the sidelined Jack Hobbs and is looking forward to making the trip to the DW Stadium this evening.
Wilson told Forest Player: “To say we’ve had three games in a week I’m feeling good. I’m enjoying it and hopefully I can keep the run going.
“As a defender you only usually get your place if there are injuries. Jack got injured so I had a chance. You look to take it and to keep your form going.
“The more games you play the more confident you get.”
Wilson played a number of games for Jimmy Gilligan’s Under 21s side during his rehabilitation, an experience which has left him feeling positive about the future of Forest’s academy.
He said: “The young lads have been brilliant. Ben Osborn has come on leaps and bounds, Jorge Grant is in and around the first team and young Oliver Burke is definitely one to watch in the future.
“There’s a few more, like Tyler Walker, Josh Rees and Roger Riera. They’ll have to bide their time but I’m sure they’ll get a chance under this manager who’s brilliant with the young lads.
“You very rarely get four or five players break through into the first team but with our Under 21s I think that could be the case.”
