Matt back for Latics trip

29 September 2014

Nottingham Forest striker Matty Fryatt is fit and available for selection for tomorrow's night's trip to Wigan Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship.

Reds assistant manager Steve Wigley confirmed this morning that Fryatt has fully recovered from a groin strain which kept him out for five games and will be available for tomorrow's match at The DW Stadium.

Speaking to Forest Player, Wigley said: "Matty Fryatt has trained for the last few days and is available for selection. That'll be a bonus because we've missed what he gives us; that ability to play up front or on the wing and that ability to score goals.

"We're in pretty good shape. We've got Matty back in contention and Andy Reid back on the training ground and, although he isn't available yet, we're looking better."

Tomorrow's trip to Wigan will be Forest's sixth game in just 17 days and with David Vaughan as the only fresh injury concern, Wigley says the squad will travel north in good shape and high spirits.

He said: "Obviously we can't afford any more injuries because when we lost four players in the week before the Derby game, it hit us quite hard.

"Any time you get any of the boys back who have been out for a while, it is a massive bonus. The team who have played recently have been great but it is nice to have a bigger pool of players to choose from."
