Cohen gets going in friendly

July 24, 2012

Sean O’Driscoll got the first chance to see his squad in match action this summer with a 4-1 victory over Alfreton Town at the Forest academy yesterday, the big news being that the returning Chris Cohen managed 45 minutes.

The prospect of a central midfield pairing of Cohen and new signing Adlène Guedioura is a mouth-watering one, even if tempting Jermaine Jenas back to the club to join them seems unlikely as the Spurs midfielder is understandably reluctant to drop into the Championship.

We may not have signed any defenders yet, but we could be about to add another goalkeeper to our squad with international stopper Khalid Al-Rashidi among the Kuwaiti trialists. Here’s a video of him in training posted on YouTube yesterday:

Now, whether that video makes him look good or just shows our strikers up as pretty poor, you can decide.
