Premier League: Awoniyi Not 100 Percent Fit – Nottingham Forest Manager


Despite scoring against Arsenal on Saturday, the manager of the English Premier League side Nottingham Forest Steve Cooper has said Nigeria forward Taiwo Awoniyi is not 100% fit on the match day.

Awoniyi was introduced into the game against Arsenal at the Emirate Stadium on Saturday alongside Anthony Elanga and was able to reduce the scoreline for the visitors.

Copper said Awoniyi has just returned to training and yet to reach the top form.

“We hope they will be fit for ninety minutes. They have only just returned. Taiwo came on and he could only play twenty minutes, It was a bit of a catch-up and an unfortunate pre-season, but the hope is that we can bring people back and compete for places”, he said.
