Nottingham Forest were defeated 1-0 at Wigan Athletic yesterday afternoon, a result which saw the Reds lose their 10-match unbeaten run.

The Reds weren’t at their fluent best during the DW Stadium contest and boss Sabri Lamouchi will look for big improvements when Hull City arrive at the City Ground on Wednesday.

Five changes were made from the team that defeated Brentford prior to the international break and a similar number could be made for Forest’s next challenge.

Ahead of Wednesday, we look at three players who simply must be fearing for their place in the starting eleven for the visit of Hull:

Rafa Mir

After a horror showing against Wigan, the Spaniard could be left pondering his missed chances that could have handed Forest vital points.

The 22-year-old made his first league start of the campaign at the DW Stadium and was largely disappointing.

On loan from Wolves, Mir must find his scoring touch sooner rather than later, if he is to prove his worth to the Forest supporters.

Tobias Figueiredo

The Portuguese defender didn’t cover himself in glory with Jamal Lowe’s winning goal, failing to block a pretty routine cross into the box.

Figueiredo didn’t enjoy his best game and with a plethora of central defensive options in reserve, he will hope to do better during his next outing.

The former Sporting Lisbon man is usually a safe pair of hands but on this occasion, he was found wanting.

John Bostock

Supporters had called for Bostock to be the replacement for the injured Samba Sow and they might be calling for him to come out of the team that faces Hull.

It was only natural that Bostock would look a little bit rusty and he was largely wasteful in possession.

He was subbed during the second half and it will be interesting to see whether or not he keeps his place for Wednesday night.
