With high flyers Swansea City up next, Nottingham Forest will be looking to extend their impressive unbeaten run to eight games.
Now, with a run of seven games without a loss, why would Forest want to change anything ahead of their clash with the league leaders?
Well, coming back from a rather underwhelming home draw to Preston North End, here are two changes that the side may want to consider making ahead of Saturday’s fixture.
This one couldn’t be more obvious. Start the man who has contributed to more goals than any other player in the club. With three goals and two assists, supporters were left questioning what the summer signing has to do to be given a league start after he was put on the substitute’s bench for their most recent fixture with Preston. In fact, his only start of the season came against Derby in the cup… funnily enough, the winger scored and ran the show in the East Midland’s Derby.
As a substitute in the game just before the international break, he scored again to rescue a point for the Reds late on which has surely all but ensured his first league start under Sabri Lamouchi.
It is likely that he will take the place of Sammy Ameobi who is yet to score for Forest this season, despite some impressive performances. Adomah has often been substituted on in place of Ameobi and it looks as though now might be the time to switch that around.
Matty Cash for Carl Jenkinson
The spot for right-back has been back and forth between the two this season. However, the two’s recent performances may be enough to sway Lamouchi in favour of Cash. Forest have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of the last three games that Jenkinson has started in, conceding three and winning just one.
Cash, in his last two fixtures, has been part of the defence that kept two clean sheets, winning both games 3-0. The most recent one came at the City Ground against Derby. In that game, Cash showed a defensive resilience but also proved how he can be an outlet going forward. It is no coincidence that Forest look more dangerous when he’s in the team.
Swansea haven’t conceded in their last three games so it will take some doing to break them down. Cash has a much better chance of doing so than Jenkinson does.
