West Ham striker Michail Antonio looking forward to Forest reunion

West Ham striker Michail Antonio is looking forward to Sunday's trip to former club Nottingham Forest.

The Hammers' record Premier League goalscorer spent just over a year in the colours of the Reds prior to his move to east London, scoring a prolific 19 goals in just 54 appearances for the City Ground club.

"I was there for a season and I enjoyed that year," he told the club's website. “So it's really nice going back. It's weird going back to be fair, I've not been back since I've left and actually I'm quite excited.

“In that season, I managed to get 15 goals and 15 assists. I was there for the first part of the next season as well and I managed to get four more goals. So I'm hoping that I get a nice response coming back. But obviously I'm coming back wearing different colours, so I'll understand if I don't!

“I've got huge respect for them, but obviously I'm going to go out there and do my job. And hopefully I do score."
