What is the current situation with Carl Jenkinson at Nottingham Forest?

Published

Carl Jenkinson will be keen to make an impact at Nottingham Forest after the international break.

The 28-year-old – who arrived at the City Ground from Arsenal last season – has struggled to earn a regular place in the side since joining the Reds.

Last season, Matty Cash was arguably Forest’s best player at right-back, with Jenkinson making only eight appearances in the Sky Bet Championship.

Did Lars Veldwijk ever score a league goal for Forest?

This season, the full-back has made only two appearances for Forest, starting in the 2-0 home defeat to Cardiff City in September and coming on as a substitute against Luton Town a fortnight ago.

Jenkinson has featured only once under Chris Hughton, then, coming on and playing at left-back following Nicholas Ioannou’s red-card at Kenilworth Road.

Cyrus Christie has established himself as Forest’s first-choice right-back under Hughton, with the Republic of Ireland international impressing since joining from Fulham in the summer.

Having featured in a training match at the Nigel Doughty Academy yesterday, Jenkinson will be hoping to make an impression during the international break.

The full-back will be keen to impress in training, as he looks to break into the team ahead of the impressive Christie and get a regular run of games under his belt.

He still has another two years left on his contract at the City Ground, too, so if he is unable to feature this season, then Forest may look to offload him this summer rather than lose him for nothing the year after.

You feel that it is now or never for the former Gunner.
