Marlon Harewood has offered a frank take on Nottingham Forest’s season in the Sky Bet Championship, labelling it as a campaign where they have ‘massively’ underachieved in an exclusive interview with Football League World.
The Reds have certainly had a tough campaign with them never really managing to climb away from the bottom half of the league table and, at times, they have flirted with the dropzone.
Of course, they’re set for another season in the second tier for next year now and the Reds will be eager to try and challenge back up at the sharp end after what has been a tough campaign.
Indeed, when asked in an interview with Football League World, Marlon Harewood had this to say when asked if the Reds had underachieved this summer:
“Yeah, massively, massively.
“They really underachieved this year, they should have gone up last year but it just didn’t happen. And this year, they had high expectations, and it didn’t work out.”
The plan for Forest needs to be to try and find some consistency next season and start a lot quicker than they did last year.
Of course, Chris Hughton will have a summer window under his belt by the start of the new campaign and he’ll feel as though he now knows where he wants to improve his side.
Time, though, will ultimately tell whether he is going to do enough to get the Reds back up towards the play-off places.
