Reports on Monday morning suggested that Cox might be a doubt for Forest's Sky Bet Championship fixture against Barnsley at the City Ground at the weekend after sustaining a dead leg during his country's 2-1 World Cup qualifying defeat to Sweden.

However, the Reds are adamant that is not the case and issued a statement on their official website on Monday afternoon to clarify the situation.

The statement said: "Contrary to a recent story in the Nottingham Post, Nottingham Forest can confirm that striker Simon Cox did not suffer any injury during Republic of Ireland's World Cup qualifier against Sweden last Friday.

"It had been reported that the forward, who came on as a substitute in the second half, had sustained a dead leg and would face a battle to be fit for the league match against Barnsley this Saturday."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
