Nottingham Forest will be without Chris Wood for Saturday’s relegation six-pointer with Wolves after he was ruled out for the remainder of the Premier League season.

Wood sustained a thigh issue during Forest’s loss to Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month and after training with New Zealand during the international break, has now been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

Forest manager Steve Cooper confirmed the news about Wood’s injury ahead of their clash with Wolves on Saturday afternoon.

There is also uncertainty over the availability of Serge Aurier, André Ayew and Gustavo Scarpa ahead of this weekend’s at the City Ground.

“Chris Wood is out for the season,” he said. “He’s picked up an injury during the international break.

“Serge Aurier, André Ayew and Gustavo Scarpa have picked up some injuries over the break as well. We’re not sure how long they will be out for or what their availability will be for the next few games.

“Taiwo Awoniyi and Cheikhou Kouyaté are back in full training, and obviously Moussa is back now having played the last game and then making his international debut for Senegal.

“It’s just something we have to deal with, we’ll put our focus into the players who are available and who are training ready to play the next game and commit to them guys.”

Wolves and Forest both went into the international break on the back of defeats, after losing to Leeds and Newcastle United respectively.

Despite there being three places between the sides, Wolves are just one point better off and have played a game more.
