He can’t even buy a pint at the pub: Why Forest are putting too much pressure on this player

Published

It’s been a poor season for Nottingham Forest in the Championship, and you don’t need to speak to many Reds fans to discover that the mood at the City Ground is at a real low.

They’ve still got work to do if they’re to stay in the division come the end of the season and it seems like manager Mark Warburton has some big decisions on his hands this summer, when it comes to adding to and losing players of this current squad.

It’s a big team with plenty of options but one man that is really grabbing the headlines of late is striker Ben Brereton, who has so much responsibility on his shoulders at just 17 years of age.

We’re talking about someone that still can’t legally go into a pub to buy a drink but still, he’s leading the line for a team that are struggling at the bottom of the Championship table and that’s tough going.

He’s managing to keep the likes of Britt Assombalonga out of the first-team which is fantastic for his development but Warburton needs to guard against Brereton and the risks exposing him to this level of pressure might bring.

So far, we’ve not seen a categorically bad miss or a horrendous run of form but when push comes to shove over the next couple of weeks, Forest need points and the pressure will be on young Brereton to get goals to keep the side up.

It’s been great having a new young star in the side over the past couple of months but right now, he needs to be scoring goals and fast.

For a 17-year-old, is this too much pressure, too quick?
