Due to an injury, former Newcastle striker Wood will not be playing on Saturday night.

What has Eddie Howe spoken regarding Chris Wood, then? Let’s examine this.

Eddie Howe commends Chris Wood, a striker for Nottingham Forest.
In the Premier League, Nottingham Forest will play Newcastle United on Saturday night at the City Ground, Chris Wood is one of the best and most important players for Forest, but the former Newcastle striker will not play against the Magpies.That is because the New Zealand international is injured at the moment. Forest head coach Nuno has said that the striker will miss the next seven to eight weeks with a hamstring injury, ahead of the match at the City Ground on Saturday evening, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe has raved about Wood.

Howe, who owned the striker at Newcastle before selling him to Forest for £15 million (The Athletic), is happy that the 32-year-old won’t be playing on Saturday night.

In December, Forest defeated Newcastle at St. James’ Park in the Premier League thanks to a hat-trick from Wood.

Howe said of Wood, according to NewcastleWorld: “Chris, on the day, did very very well.” We knew his qualities, so it came as no surprise.

“We’re happy he’ll be missing, but he was a great signing for us to help keep us in the division when we were in a tough situation.”
Chris Wood’s injury, in my opinion, is a setback for Nottingham Forest. Under Nuno, the striker was just beginning to show promise, but he will now be sidelined for several weeks.

So far this season, the striker has made nine starts and eleven substitute appearances for Forest in the Premier League. In those contests, he has eight goals and one assist.

Now that Forest needs to avoid the dreaded relegation to the Championship at the conclusion of the season, Taiwo Awoniyi needs to step up his game and score the goals the team needs.
