Blackburn Rovers announced the signing of Nottingham Forest striker Ben Brereton on a permanent basis earlier this month. 

The Reds are believed to have received around £7 million for his services.

However, Brereton has struggled to make an impact since making the move to Ewood Park.

He has done little to prove that he is worth such a hefty price tag.

It remains to be seen whether Brereton is able to turn his form around, but Rovers fans are beginning to lose faith in the youngster.

Brereton fails to impress in rare start

Brereton was given a rare place in the starting line-up for Blackburn’s FA Cup replay against Newcastle last night.

He wasn’t able to take advantage of the opportunity. Having missed a fantastic chance shortly after half-time, he was ultimately substituted after 65 minutes.

It was another poor performance from the youngster, and his confidence must be at an all time low.

This means that he has now made 19 appearances so far this season, failing to score a single goal.

Allowing Brereton to leave for around £7 million may well turn out to be Forest’s best piece of business this month.
