Steve Cooper’s manager is hoping for a more “definitive diagnosis” on Lewis Grabban’s injury suffered against Peterborough United on Saturday. The experienced forward has been ruled out until at least the Hull City match on the final day of the Championship season. In a recent interview with Nottinghamshire correspondent.

Grabban, who has 12 championship goals this season, has only recently returned after a seven-game absence due to an ankle ailment. This season, the 34-year-old has amazing minutes per goal record (171), which is only surpassed by six of his championship peers (who have scored 10 or more).

Grabbs has done his hamstring,” Forest manager Cooper told Nottinghamshire correspondent, regarding Grabban’s issue. It’s still settling in, though. It’s still settling down, so it’s a little unclear how long the medics are committing to him being unavailable.

“He won’t play in any games until Hull, for sure. ” Hopefully, by the end of the week, I’ll have a more definitive diagnosis. We handle injuries as they occur. We’ve picked up a couple in recent weeks, with the lads at the top of the pitch.

At Craven Cottage, Philip Zinckernagel’s goal gave the visitors three points. The victory ensures Forest a top-six finish, but Bournemouth’s lead has been reduced to three points. Both Zinckernagel and Jack Colback appeared to be knocked out in the capital. I don’t want to say we’ve got injuries from this one, but a couple of the boys have come off with knocks. “( If we have, it’s unfortunate, but we move on. “

Despite Brennan Johnson’s sustained brilliance and the additions of Sam Surridge and Keinan Davis, Grabban remains unbeaten. He continues to be a key goal scorer for the Reds. With 12 goals and an impressive rate of production this season, the veteran forward is an important part of the team, especially since Davis is currently injured.

A hamstring issue might be difficult to diagnose, so the doctors will keep an eye on it as the season progresses. With the play-offs seeming more possible in the next months of the season, Forest will be hoping to see a player like Grabban return if they finish third to sixth.
