After a disappointing defeat on Saturday to Huddersfield and the end of Nottingham Forest’s unbeaten run, Nottingham Forest sit in 10th.
They are nine points off the play-offs and they missed a huge opportunity to make ground on the play-off pack.
Despite that, there is still 15 games to go and Dougie Freedman’s men could mount a late play-off charge with the right personnel acquired and the return of Britt Assombalonga.
They would need a similar unbeaten streak until the end of the season like the one that has just ended.
Chelsea, similarly, has improved since the turn of the year and have been unbeaten under Guus Hiddink.
Although the first team has failed to perform to the usual standards, the youth teams continue to impress on a regular basis.
Michael Mancienne has played for both clubs and Dougie Freedman will be hoping to forge a successful relationship between the two clubs, so he can hand-pick some of the brightest young talents in England to bring to the club.
Nottingham Forest has had a remarkable run to go from two points off the relegation places, to touching distance of the play-off pack, it has been built on a solid defensive foundation but the lack of goals could prove costly, if Freedman doesn’t address this weakness and strengthen his attacking options in the emergency loan window.
This article looks at THREE players that could join Nottingham Forest from Chelsea in the emergency loan window………….
