Wes Morgan injury boost for Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest centre-half Wes Morgan could be back in action a month ahead of schedule after making a swift recovery from an ankle injury.

Morgan could face Championship leaders Southampton on Saturday, despite having been ruled out for eight weeks with ligament damage in mid-December.

He was substituted 20 minutes into the loss to Crystal Palace on 10 December.

But the 27-year-old has responded well to treatment and Forest will assess his fitness later this week.
