At the age of 75, Larry Lloyd, a four-time England international with a stellar career at Nottingham Forest and Liverpool as well as former Bristol, Coventry, and Wigan, passed away on Thursday.

The English Football Association conveyed its sympathies to Lloyd’s family and friends upon learning of his passing. Lloyd earned four caps between 1971 and 1980.

The former Bristol player, who left his native club to join Liverpool in 1969, won league and UEFA Cup triumphs with the Reds in the 1972–73 season. In 1974, he moved to Coventry City, where he remained until 1976, when he signed a Championship contract with Nottingham Forest.

As a member of the legendary Nottingham team that won two European Cups (1979 and 1980), one League, two League Cups, one English Super Cup, and one European Cup, he was promoted to the top flight.


Taiwo Awoniyi will provide Nottingham Forest a significant boost in fitness as they battle for relegation.

The Nigerian international’s thigh injury raised concerns that he would miss the remainder of the campaign.

In their fight to stay in the league, Nottingham Forest stands to benefit greatly from the arrival of Taiwo Awoniyi.

The £17.5 million attacker Awoniyi is scheduled to have a scan later this week about a thigh injury, and Nuno Espirito Santo, the head coach of Forest, is getting more and more optimistic that he will be ready for the last stretch.

Before the 1-1 draw with Luton Town on March 16, the Nigerian international suffered the setback during practice, raising initial concerns that he may miss the entire campaign.

This season, Awoniyi has scored six goals in the Premier League, and with the team lacking many offensive alternatives, Chris Wood is under more pressure to stay fit.
