Cohen is a midfielder but has been playing at left-back this season

Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cotterill believes Chris Cohen could be playing again before the end of the season.

The versatile 24-year-old midfielder suffered knee ligament damage in the defeat by Derby County in September and was initially ruled out for a year.

Cotterill told BBC Radio Nottingham: "I wouldn't rule out him being back before the end of the season.

"I'm talking right at the back end of the season, but he won't be too far away. You can see that in him already."
