2 criminally underrated Nottingham Forest players Chris Hughton needs to use more



Nottingham Forest have one of the biggest squads in the Championship after a very hectic summer on Trentside.

The Reds brought in 14 new players over the course of the summer, adding to a squad which now consists of over 30 first-team players.

Some of those players will already be looking at January ahead of a potential move away from the City Ground, though some will be eager to fight their way into Chris Hughton’s plans.

Quiz: Did these 17 Nottingham Forest players ever actually score a league goal for the club?

Did Lars Veldwijk ever score a league goal for Forest?

There are some who find themselves out of favour due to the huge amount of competition in the squad, and with a large amount of games on the horizon, they may get their chance to impress.

Here, we take a look at two underrated players Hughton should look to use more…

Alex Mighten

Mighten may only be 18-years-old, but he is a player who has large potential and has already shown glimpses of his quality at this level.

The young winger made 10 appearances in all competitions last season, but has been left out of the matchday squad in Forest’s last three games under Hughton this term.

He adds real pace and energy to the side, and he hit the crossbar in the opening minute of their 2-1 home defeat to Bristol City last month in what was a hugely impressive display.

Championship sides will be able to make five substitutes from late November, it has been revealed, which could lead to more cameos for the attacker.

Forest wanted to bring in a winger in the summer and missed out on Kamil Grosicki, but he could be the answer to their problems.

Loic Mbe Soh

In fairness to Hughton, Forest’s defence has been largely solid under the 61-year-old since he walked through the doors at the City Ground.

Tobias Figueiredo has formed a solid partnership with Scott McKenna at the back, so it would be unfair to break them up at the moment.

But with plenty of games approaching, Mbe Soh deserves a chance to be thrown into the side.

The young defender, who arrived from PSG in the summer, has made only two appearances this season, and looked promising in both of those games.

The 19-year-old has a lot of potential, and fans will be excited to see him in action,
