Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper has said the target this season is to ensure that Nigeria forward Taiwo Awoniyi scores more goals this season.
The bulky attacker was the club’s top scorer last season and he has also scored twice this season despite that he’s yet to reach full fitness.
Cooper said they are working hard on him to make sure surpasses what he achieved last season.
“I hope he can,” Cooper said. “That would be nice! He scored a lot of goals at Union Berlin. That’s the hope. That’s the plan. That’s the challenge for him. That’s the challenge for us coaches, to push him.
“There’s a lot of individual work going on with him and all the other guys because that’s a big part of our work. What’s great about T is he wants to work, he wants to challenge and he wants to push.
“He needs a bit of luck with injuries and availability. I hope he gets it.
“Let’s hope he can reach that mark. But it will only be if he continues to do what he’s been doing every day – and I don’t just mean in games, I mean his attitude to work at the training ground, both on and off the pitch.
“He’s been brilliant since he returned from that harsh injury he picked up at Southampton last year. He’s also had a stop-start pre-season.
