Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury says he is ‘raring to go’ and that he and Britt Assombalonga have come back stronger from their injuries.
The Reds take on Brentford at The City Ground tomorrow and midfielder Lansbury, who has missed nearly three months through a knee ligament injury, says his recovery has been great and that he hasn’t undergone surgery.
He told Forest Player HD: “The medical staff have been fantastic with me, letting me do my own stuff and letting me rehabilitate right.
“Me and Britt went over for a warm-weather training camp, which was very hard.
“We’ve come back stronger, as you can see with Britt as well – he scored a great goal the other day, and says he’s feeling fit.”
Lansbury says he is available for selection tomorrow and hopes head coach Paul Williams is able to give him a run out.
He adds: “It was always a case of whether I’d make the end of the season, or whether I’d miss it. Thankfully I’ve made it and I’m looking to go on a strong run.
“I think the boys have been working extremely hard, working under the new two who are looking after us. They’ve been fantastic coming in and we’re looking forward to playing.”
