Nottingham Forest: Scott McKenna to miss Liverpool clash

Nottingham Forest: Scott McKenna to miss Liverpool clash -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest will be without Scott McKenna for this evening’s FA Cup clash with Liverpool.

The Lowdown: McKenna a regular at Forest

The 25-year-old has been a key player for Forest this season, starting every single Championship game so far. He has also helped the club into the last eight of the FA Cup, playing every minute against Arsenal, Leicester City and Huddersfield Town.

Steve Cooper is already without defenders Steve Cook and Max Lowe for the visit of Jurgen Klopp’s side, and McKenna is the latest to be ruled out of the City Ground clash.

The Latest: Hamstring problem for McKenna

Nottinghamshire Live’s Sarah Clapson shared a story on Saturday afternoon, just over 24 hours before the quarter-final.

The story shared comments from Cooper, who confirmed that McKenna looks set to miss five weeks of action with a hamstring problem.

The Verdict: Huge miss for Forest

Not only is this a blow for the meeting with Liverpool this evening, but also for the club’s push for promotion to the Premier League.

You’d expect that the centre-back will miss at least the next five Championship fixtures as a result of his muscular problem, including what could be a crucial trip to fellow play-off contenders Luton Town next month.

Hopefully Forest will be able to cope without the Scotland international and stay in contention for a play-off spot, with McKenna possibly returning in time for the season’s run-in.
