David Vaughan blow for Nottingham Forest

4 February 2014

Nottingham Forest have been dealt a blow following news that David Vaughan will be sidelined for up to three months with a knee injury,

Reds boss Billy Davies confirmed the midfielder, on-loan from Sunderland, faces a lengthy spell out.

He told Forest Player: "He has picked up a fractured patella (kneecap), which unfortunately will keep him out for the best part of three months.

"It's on a similar scale to the losses of Chris Cohen, Kelvin Wilson and Dexter Blackstock. David is a very important player. It's a huge blow for the club, the fans and the player himself.

"But we're developing a squad for the future, that is our objective when we sign this type of player, and we hope he'll be able to come back before the end of the season."
