Nottingham Forest were held to a 1-1 draw by Preston North End this weekend, with the Reds continuing their recent unbeaten run.
The Reds haven’t been defeated since the opening day of the season against West Bromwich Albion at the City Ground.
With Forest making a promising start to the Championship season, Seat Pitch cast an eye towards the members of the squad currently on temporary moves away from the City Ground.
Tyler Walker – Lincoln City
It’s looking like it could be another successful season for the Imps, as their 2-0 win against Fleetwood Town at the weekend moved them up to second place in League One.
Walker has been virtually ever-present under the management of Danny Cowley so far. The 22-year-old repaid the faith his manager showed in him by scoring two quick-fire goals in the first half.
With four goals to his name already this season, some Nottingham Forest fans may be questioning the club’s decision to loan him out.
Luke Steele – Millwall
It was another quiet afternoon for the 34-year-old goalkeeper as he was an unused substitute in the 1-1 draw against Hull City.
He is yet to make an appearance for the Lions in the Championship. His two appearances so far have both come in the Carabao Cup.
According to reports, Steele turned down a move to Premier League giants Manchester City to make the switch to the Den this summer. For that reason, he’ll be hoping he can soon dislodge Bartosz Białkowski from Neil Harris’ starting line-up.
Virgil Gomis – Macclesfield Town
The 20-year-old has endured a frustrating start to his loan spell at Moss Rose.
He is yet to be named in Daryl McMahon’s starting line-up for a League Two fixture. He didn’t even make the matchday squad for the Silkmen’s 2-2 draw away at Stevenage at the weekend.
However, he did find the back of the net against Blackpool a couple of weeks ago in the first round of the Carabao Cup.
Jayden Richardson – Exeter City
The 18-year-old right-back was allowed to join League Two side Exeter City on loan a few weeks ago. He had been part of Sabri Lamouchi’s first-team squad for pre-season training this summer.
He has already made two appearances in League Two for the Grecians. However, he was an unused substitute in their 1-0 win against Mansfield Town at the weekend.
The Grecians are currently sat top of League Two having made an unbeaten start to the season. Richardson will be hoping that he can help them achieve promotion to League One, before returning to the City Ground as a much improved player.
