Super Eagles striker Taiwo Awoniyi will make his Nottingham Forest debut against Coventry City in their first friendly match of pre-season at the Pinatar Arena on Friday evening.

Kicking off at 6.30pm (5.30pm UK time), Reds fans would be catching a glimpse of their record signing in the game.

The Unicorn and Imperial Soccer Academy product joined newly promoted Forest on a five-year deal for a reported £17.5m.

Awoniyi scored 20 goals in 43 games across all competitions last season.

Scoring 15 goals in 31 league games, Awoniyi was the Bundesliga’s sixth highest scorer last season and helped Union Berlin to a fifth-place finish which guaranteed the club Europa League football for the first time since the 2001-02 season.
