Former Welsh international Rob Edwards sends best wishes to Wales and Liverpool legend John Toshack ahead of trip to Newport


Forest Green boss Rob Edwards has sent his heartfelt thoughts to his former Wales’ boss John Toshack who is in intensive care in a Spanish hospital as he battles severe pneumonia brought on by Covid.

Ahead of his side’s St David’s Day trip to promotion-chasing Newport County, Edwards offered his warmest wishes to the Toshack family.

Edwards said: “He was a former manager of mine and I send my best wishes to John. I know his son Cameron pretty well and my best wishes go out to them and his family. John is a legend of the game and a really nice man – I wish him well.”

Rovers, who sit 10 points clear at the top, despite back-to-back defeats are hoping to get back to winning ways at Rodney Parade after defeating County 2-0 just three weeks ago.
