Nottingham Forest Rules Ola Aina Out of Aston Villa Clash


Nottingham Forest has informed that they will be without Super Eagles defender Ola Aina for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Aston Villa, reports.

Ola Aina picked up an injury while representing Nigeria at the African Cup of Nations tournament.

The Nigerian linked back up with his Reds teammates towards the end of last week but was ruled out of last weekend’s 2-0 win over West Ham United, and he will now also miss the trip to Villa Park.

Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo says it is not clear how long Ola Aina might be out of action.
Aina played the full 90 minutes of the AFCON final for Nigeria.

“We have some problems,” Nuno said. “The three players who returned are not available. All of them – Ola, Willy and Ibrahim – came with injuries, so they will not be available for this match. We don’t have a date for their return.
“Ola got injured in the semi-final and played the final with an injury, he tried but didn’t really play in the final. So Aina is not available, which is bad for us.”
