Chris Hughton has revealed that Nottingham Forest will only make minor changes as he prepares for the January transfer window.
The Reds enjoyed a particularly busy summer window as they brought 14 new players to the City Ground ahead of the new season.
Unfortunately things haven’t gone as well as they’d have hoped this term.
Forest find themselves sitting perilously close to the relegation zone after a mixed start to the campaign which has seen them winning just three of their 17 fixtures so far.
But while the temptation could be to throw money at the issue by making signings next month, Hughton believes that it will be a case of making ‘tweaks’ rather than wholesale changes.
Speaking to Nottinghamshire Live Hughton said: “At this moment we haven’t made any decisions about January.
“We know we have got a lot of players who came in in the summer. We will look if we can, to tweak a little bit.
“Obviously we looked to bring in Kamil Grosicki in the last window, which didn’t happen.
“We will look to tweak things, but I certainly don’t see anything wholesale happening.”
Who was the Nottingham Forest manager when each of these 15 Forest moments happened?
He added: “I think predominantly it’s going to be this group of players.
“It was before my time, but we brought in 14 players in the summer. Some haven’t played yet. Some haven’t been fit yet.
“It has been about getting that right XI on the pitch with the options I’ve got.
“We will work as hard as we can in January and maybe tweak something, but certainly there won’t be anything wholesale happening – not with the numbers which came in during the summer.”
It could be a difficult transfer window for Nottingham Forest.
With the club struggling in the Championship it seems that Chris Hughton will be looking to make some changes to his squad ahead of the second half of the season.
But with so much business done over the summer, it may be a case of sticking with what he has and hoping for an upturn in form – after all, the prospect of battling relegation at the City Ground is unthinkable.
