2 tweaks Steve Cooper could make to his Nottingham Forest XI vs Barnsley

Published

on

Steve Cooper will be looking to guide his Nottingham Forest side to their second win of the season tomorrow.

The Reds drew 1-1 with Millwall at the City Ground on Saturday afternoon, with Max Lowe looping a cross over Bartosz Bialkowski and into the net via the woodwork.

It wasn’t to be a first win in his first game in charge, but Cooper will have learnt a lot as he took to the City Ground home dugout for the first time.

Tomorrow night, Forest travel to Oakwell to face Barnsley, with the Reds looking to pick up only their second win of the campaign.

With a trip to Birmingham on the horizon this weekend, we take a look at two tweaks Cooper could make to his side to face Barnsley tomorrow night…

Taylor in for Grabban

Grabban is expected to be missing tomorrow night after the hobbled off with a thigh problem at the weekend.

The striker nearly opened the scoring inside five minutes, but he saw his effort saved by Bialkowski from close-range.

Grabban then limped off and walked straight down the tunnel, cutting a dejected figure.

It remains to be seen how long he is out for, but the likelihood is that he will be missing tomorrow and Taylor will replace him.

Mighten in for Lolley

Mighten produced a positive display when he came on at the weekend, and will be keen to make an appearance from the off in midweek.

What Mighten brings is raw pace and direct running. He isn’t afraid to take an opponent on and he always looks to get in behind and push forward.

Cooper has worked with him before and will know how to get the best out of him.
