Nottingham Forest currently sit in fifth place in the league table and one of their standout performers during 2019/20 has been Matty Cash.
The 22-year-old has rediscovered himself at right-back with Tendayi Darikwa and Carl Jenkinson both currently out injured.
Cash is typically a winger by trade but this season he has been unbelievably good operating as a right-back under Sabri Lamouchi.
Despite his tender years, Cash has already played over 100 games for the Reds having risen through the club’s academy ranks.
Following his impressive form, some statistics have emerged from the last couple of games which he has played in.
Against Luton, he made 11 tackles – a record number for any single Championship game this season, collecting the Man of the Match award in the process.
Matty Cash last 2 games:
⚽️ 1 Goal
💯 2 Key passes
🔒 14 Tackles (11 vs Luton League High)
🔒 9 Interceptions
🔒 7 Clearances
✅ 155 Touches
✅ 4 Aerial duels won
✅ 75.3% Pass accuracy
⭐️ 1 MOTM

Following such impressive figures, Forest supporters have been taking to Twitter to buzz over the form of their in-form defender.
Cash is a likeable member of the Forest squad and this season he has proved to some of his critics exactly what he brings to the team.
His versatility is proving a great asset to Lamouchi’s team and right now the right-back berth is his to lose.
Following the emergence of these statistics, we looked at a selection of tweets from Forest fans backing up his brilliance of the current campaign:
@Tocco0115 You know when Paps says 2 years ago “He’s got the makings of a top Championship full-back” …. 😂
