Cohen Pays Homage To Yeovil

Chris Cohen and Arron Davies were both Yeovil players last season and played a major part in the success the Glovers had last term. Both are of course now Forest players and made the move to Trentside in the summer for a combined fee of over a million pounds. The game will come too early for Davies, but Cohen looks set to play his fourth game for the Reds.

It's very much to young Cohens' credit, when he says he won't celebrate if he scores on Saturday, because of the respect he has for his former club. Cohen speaks fondly of his time with the Somerset outfit and says they helped to make him the player he is today.

Speaking to the Somerset Standard he said. 'I was in the reserves at West Ham and Thommo (then manager Steve Thompson) gave me the chance to play a lot of games, I don't know where I would be without that opportunity. I played over 100 games and got a lot of experience and then when Russell Slade came in he gave me the chance to express myself and hopefully I repaid him with my performances. Yeovil is a wonderful little club and I haven't got a bad word to say about them.' You have to admire his honesty. I wish more players showed the same respect when they came back to the City Ground, but then maybe we the fans don't give them the chance. Having said that, Nicky Southall was given a very warm reception by the fans on his return last weekend with Gillingham, so we can't be that bad.

I hope Cohen does score on Saturday though, because he deserves it. It can be no coincidence that our resurgence in form has come at the same time as his arrival in the side. He has added some much needed quality in midfield that was sadly lacking. His modesty is a credit to him and because of that, I'd imagine the faithful at Huish Park at the weekend will give him a warm reception. That respect should work both ways.
