NOTTINGHAM FOREST goalkeeper Matt Turner's wife Ashley Herron revealed she suffered a broken nose due to a team-mate's wayward shot.

Ashley followed Turner to the UK after he was signed by Arsenal in 2022 from New England Revolution.

The American also moved with her beau when he signed for Forest this past summer transfer window.

And the former NFL cheerleader continually supports him from the stands, so much so that she is even willing to put her own safety at risk.

She recently attended a match where she had a front-row seat close to the action.

But all the "glitz and glamour" went out the window after Gonzalo Montiel fired a powerful shot that missed the target but smacked her in the face leading to a broken nose.

Ashley told talkSPORT: I’ve got a broken nose right now because I went to a game and got hit in the nose.

“It happened during the warm up. It was Montiel. I don’t think it’s glitz and glamour.”

Ashley is a former NFL cheerleader who showed off her dancing skills at Super Bowl LII.

She also gained her Masters degree in business management from Harvard University.

The mother of two met Turner in the US during his time at the MLS and they moved across the pond when she was eight months pregnant.

Ashley added: "I don’t think I was necessarily prepared for the intensity of the Premier League. We came from MLS and obviously that’s not as high profile.

“This league is just developed in people’s blood and it’s a beautiful thing.

"The pressure for the players and their families is something I don’t think you can prepare for.

“You have to just go through the journey and experience it and that’s where you really learn the ins and outs of everything.

“We moved over to Arsenal when I was eight months pregnant and I had to move before Matt finished up his season. I came to the country without a place to live.

“It's definitely different but I wouldn’t trade it for the world because I feel like Matt and I have grown closer for this experience.

“It doesn’t make things easier not being able to have your family next door to call on and we’re grateful we have a very supportive family but that was definitely difficult.”
