Cox out for two months

29 November 2012

Nottingham Forest striker Simon Cox will be out for around two months with the ankle injury he suffered against Wolves.

Cox was carried off on a stretcher 65 minutes into the Reds' 2-1 victory at Molineux on Saturday and scans have revealed ligament damage in the 25-year-old's left foot.

"If he's back before then [two months] we'll be delighted," said Forest boss Sean O'Driscoll.

"It doesn't need surgery but he will have to be non-weight bearing for two weeks. Then they will X-ray it again to see if it's healing.

"If it is then there will be no more intervention. If it isn't healing they will probably have to pin it or staple it, but we should know more in two weeks."

Republic of Ireland international Cox joined Forest from West Brom in the summer and has scored five goals in 17 appearances for O'Driscoll's side.
