Assombalonga was the club's top goalscorer last year when he suffered a horrific knee injury, and has been out of action for almost 14 months.
He returned to training recently but Forest have been careful not to rush him, with little to play for at present, looking unlikely to crack a top 10 finish let alone the play-offs, but probably safe from relegation.
He started for Forest's under-21 side on Monday in a match against Hull City, and smashed a clinical effort into the roof of the net when the ball broke to him.
Seeing Assombalonga back in action at the City Ground will be the boost the club need at the moment, with the team struggling to replace him over the past year.
For now though watching him find the net again for the under-21s is enough to raise a smile, and it won't be too long before he does it for the first team.
