Is Taiwo Awoniyi prepared to confront Manchester City?

Posted : 24 April 2024

Super Eagles striker Taiwo Awoniyi faces a significant injury setback amidst Nottingham Forest's battle against relegation.

Currently enduring his second injury spell of the season, Awoniyi recently underwent groin surgery to address a persistent issue.

Despite returning to action in January, setbacks in his recovery prompted Forest manager Nuno Esposito Santos to stress the importance of cautious handling as Awoniyi aims to regain full fitness.

Unfortunately, another setback prior to the Luton Town match sidelined Awoniyi once more, with initial return timelines unclear but recent scans offering hope for his participation in the remaining crucial matches of the season.

As Nottingham Forest prepares to face Manchester City under Pep Guardiola's management in a pivotal Premier League fixture, Awoniyi's availability remains uncertain, presenting a challenge against the table-topping City seeking to close the gap with Arsenal.

Not fully reintegrated into the group, Awoniyi's readiness to face Manchester City remains in question, as indicated by Santos during a recent press conference.

While uncertainty lingers over his availability for Forest's crucial clash, reports suggest Awoniyi may be nearing a return to the squad, underscoring his significance despite the setback.

Expressing optimism about Awoniyi's potential return this season, Santos highlights the striker's importance to the team, suggesting a positive outlook despite the current setback.

While his status for Nottingham Forest remains unclear, Awoniyi could play a vital role in Nigeria's upcoming 2026 World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa and Benin Republic in June.
