£5.5m Nottingham Forest star sends message to injured captain

Forest City Ground

Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga has sent his best wishes to captain Chris Cohen.

Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga has reacted to his first East Midlands derby display.

The £5.5 million summer signing from Peterborough scored the opening goal in the 1-1 draw, and took to Twitter after the game to discuss how he hopes it is the first of many.

Clearly on Assombalonga's mind however was the injury to skipper Chris Cohen, which appears to be serious.

Assombalonga has now scored five goals in his opening six Championship games for Forest, and already appears to be money well spent.

He scored with one of his two shots on target against Derby, and also himself created one goalscoring opportunity.
