Hobbs' return means he will provide additional defensive back-up in Steve Bruce's squad for the remainder of the Premier League campaign.

But he will be ineligible to play in their FA Cup fourth round tie with Southend this weekend having already featured in the competition for Forest.

Chester limped off during the Tigers' 1-0 defeat at Norwich on Saturday and he is likely to miss six league games after suffering a similar hamstring injury to the one that kept him out for 11 weeks earlier this season.

The defender, who was brought in from Leicester for £850,000 in the summer of 2011, made 27 appearances for Forest during his time at the City Ground and will now look to force his way into Bruce's first-team plans.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
