Nottingham Forest boss Paul Williams comments on Britt Assombalonga's goal

Assombalonga, Antonio and Le Fondre

The Forest striker had not scored since returning from injury.

Nottingham Forest finished their Championship campaign with a 2-1 win at MK Dons today with perhaps the most popular two goalscorers possible finding the net for Forest.

Chris Cohen spent a lengthy spell on the sidelines before a return to action in January. He scored the opening goal for Forest in this game.

The winning goal came from a man who has also had to battle with serious injury trouble.

Britt Assombalonga spent 14 months on the sidelines after a hideous knee injury suffered last season and his knack to find the back of the net has certainly been missed for Forest in that time and today he scored his first goal since his comeback.

Speaking after the game, which might have been his last in charge, Paul Williams told BBC Nottingham Sport of his striker:

"It was written in the stars.

“All he wants to do is play football and he hasn't been able to for 13 months."

Assombalonga is a natural born finisher and Forest have undoubtedly been missing his presence in the first-team.

He will now have a summer to get back up to fitness and iron out any remaining cobwebs.

The Forest striker will now be looking forward to scoring several more goals from the start of next season.
