Nottingham Forest picked up an impressive 1-0 win against Swansea City 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 continuing their 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.
Liam Bridcutt – Bolton Wanderers
It’s been a tough start to the season for the Trotters, mainly due to all of the off-the-field problems they’ve only recently sorted out. It didn’t get any easier for them at the weekend as they were beaten 6-1 away at Rotherham United.
Bridcutt made his debut for the Trotters under the management of Keith Hill. It’s the first competitive appearance the 30-year-old midfielder has made since October 2018.
Despite the result, Bridcutt will be pleased to have come through the entirety of the 90 minutes at the New York Stadium. He was praised by Bolton Wanderers supporters for his performance after the game.
Tyler Walker – Lincoln City
It’s been a turbulent week at Sincil Bank following the departure of Danny and Nicky Cowley for Huddersfield Town. The Imps didn’t get off to the best start to life without them, falling to a 1-0 defeat against Bristol Rovers.
Walker has already scored four goals since joining the Imps on a season-long loan. However, he wasn’t able to add to his tally in this game. He was restricted to very few opportunities throughout.
Luke Steele – Millwall
It was another quiet afternoon for the 34-year-old goalkeeper as he was an unused substitute in the 2-0 defeat against Blackburn Rovers.
He is still yet to make an appearance for the Lions in the Championship.
Virgil Gomis – Macclesfield Town
The 20-year-old’s frustrating start to his loan spell at Moss Rose continued at the weekend.
He came on as a substitute for Joe Ironside in the 77th minute of Macclesfield’s game against Swindon Town. However, he wasn’t able to prevent the Silkmen falling to a 3-0 defeat at the County Ground.
Jayden Richardson – Exeter City
The 18-year-old right-back was an unused substitute in Exeter’s 2-2 draw against Leyton Orient this weekend. He’ll be hoping he can force his way back into the starting line-up next weekend.
