Nothing seems to be changing at Nottingham Forest right now as they made it seven league games without a victory after a defeat to Middlesbrough.
Fans were hoping it would be the night that Chris Hughton could finally guide the Reds to a first league win of the campaign, but they slipped yet again to a 2-0 loss on home soil.
Forest more than held their own until the Teessiders opened the scoring on 24 minutes through Slovenian striker Andraz Sporar who was starting his first game for the club – how Forest could have done with a clinical striker like that on the pitch.
The lead was doubled with 18 minutes of the match to go through Onel Hernandez who capitalised on a mistake from Ethan Horvath to secure the three points for Neil Warnock’s side.
24 questions about some of Nottingham Forest’s best ever forwards – Can get 100% correct?
There were a whole host of poor performances from a Forest standpoint, and they included Lyle Taylor’s who is not enamouring himself very well to fans at this moment in time.
Taylor has scored just once this season so far and the desperation for a new striker at the club based on his performance this evening is evident – check out what supporters have been saying on his match.
#nffc Taylor is the worst striker I’ve seen at Forest ever absolutely useless running round does not make you a footballer

Lyle Taylor can't hold up the ball to save his life. Just bounces off him every time. #nffc

Taylor is the personification of the headless chicken.
He just offers nothing except for ‘running at the keeper for back passes’ and ‘moaning about every tackle expecting a free kick’#NFFC

I've tried to have some patience with Lyle Taylor, but he's not a Championship striker or anything even close. #NFFC

Lyle Taylor is the kind of striker teams who are relegated have. #nffc
