Chris Wood is the most recent player to sustain an injury ahead of Nottingham Forest’s FA Cup match against Bristol City, according to the most recent injury news from NottinghamshireLive.

Nottingham Forest takes on Bristol City at the City Ground tonight at 7:45 p.m. with the goal of securing a spot in the FA Cup fifth round.

In the FA Cup, the teams will play again in the fourth round after their goalless stalemate at Ashton Gate last month. In the following round, the victors will host Manchester United.

Chris Wood, who suffered a hamstring injury during last week’s 2-1 loss to Arsenal, will not be playing for Forest. The Australian was forced to leave the game at halftime, missing the Reds’ Sunday trip to Bournemouth where they rallied for a 1-1 draw.

Nuno Espirito Santo revealed that Wood might miss up to eight weeks of action, which would leave the Portuguese manager without many options for forward play. Chris is regrettably unavailable. He’s not back in and won’t be for a while. Let’s see, maybe it won’t be too lengthy,” Nuno remarked.

“The injury is to the hamstrings. We performed a scan since he was uncomfortable, and it revealed a small damage. We find it frustrating that this occurs. He was questionable for the game on Sunday and will be sidelined for some time.”

Callum Hudson-Odoi is another doubt as he continues to have treatment following a challenge by Bournemouth midfielder Philip Billing. The Cherries man received a straight red card.
