Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury gives injury update

Henri Lansbury is confident he will be back for Nottingham Forest soon.

Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury has given a positive response when asked about a comeback for the club.

The midfielder has been out of action since early January after sustaining an ankle injury against Queens Park Rangers.

Asked by a supporter via Twitter, 'how's the ankle?', Lansbury gave an encouraging reply.

Lansbury has two goals and two assists in 20 starts this season in the Championship, and had featured in a more defensive midfield role than usual.

He was convinced to stay at Forest in the summer amid interest from Burnley, and could be arriving back from injury at an interesting time.

Forest have risen to 10th in the division, and are in with a shout of reaching the play-offs if they keep up their consistent form. They are on an unbeaten run in the league which stretched back to before Lansbury got injured, and his return will only help their cause.
