‘Good time for O’Neill to rotate’ – Time for Nottm Forest to take gamble? Opinion



Nottingham Forest face Championship basement side Ipswich Town this weekend looking for three points as they look to keep their outside play-off hopes alive, on the back of a midweek 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa.

Forest manager Martin O’Neill has a decision to make regarding top-scorer Lewis Grabban, after confirming was a slight chance the striker could be ready to face Ipswich.

But adding he is also aware that in the international break there is an opportunity for a further period of rest for the 31-year-old’s troublesome Achilles, as reported in the Nottingham Post.

So should Forest risk Grabban this weekend?

We discuss…..

Louie Chandler

“Absolutely not.

“With the likes of Leo Bonatini available it would be a good time for O’Neill to rotate.

“Why bother risking Grabban when you have decent back-up?”

Gary Hutchinson

“Yes, he’s probably fit and just doesn’t think he is!

“They need a miracle to make the top six now.

“Is he a miracle provider?

“I’m not sure he is.”

Jay Taylor

“They lost last time out so there is every chance O’Neill could.

“But with a plethora of striking options available, I think it would be foolish to.

“Rushing Grabban back could cause him to break down and miss more of what is left of the season – I don’t think it is worth it in that respect.”
