Matthew Cash delivered a message on Twitter expressing his disappointment after it was confirmed that he had fractured a bone in his knee, ruling him out for two to three months.

The Nottingham Forest youngster left the field with 22 minutes on the clock after colliding with Villa defender Tommy Elphick.

The 19-year-old stated after the match on Sunday that he was hoping for the scan results to come back positive in the week.

Cash took to his personal Twitter account to express his disappointment, but he did reveal that he was happy not having to undergo surgery and vowed to come back stronger than ever.

Cash moved to the City Ground in 2014 after spells with Wycombe and the Football Academy at Bisham Abbey.

He spent a three-month loan at League Two side Dagenham and Redbridge last season where he scored three goals in 12 appearances.

He made his debut for Forest in the club’s season opener against Burton, a day after signing a new three-year-deal at the club.

The youngster has started in two other League clashes under Philippe Montanier, while also coming off of the bench in the 3-1 victory over Leeds.

The French coach will lead his side against Rotherham on Wednesday and he will look to progress them up the league with the side currently sat in 10th after six matches.

In other Nottingham Forest team news, Forest earned a late 2-2 draw against Aston Villa at Villa Park on Sunday afternoon and their players took to Twitter to celebrate the tie.
