Jack Robinson is likely to start at left-back as Nottingham Forest travel to Millwall on Friday in the Championship.
Jack Robinson has been performing well since he’s been brought back into the side due to Yuri Ribeiro‘s injury.
Robinson has started the last three league games under Sabri Lamouchi against Bristol City, Queens Park Rangers and Cardiff City. Ribeiro has been missing due to a knee injury he picked up against Derby County before the international break.
Ribeiro has recently suggested on social media that he’s close to a return. If he is fit, it’ll be interesting to see who Lamouchi goes with against Millwall.
As it stands, it’s more likely that Robinson will start against the Lions.
The 26-year-old is likely to be tested at the New Den on Friday. The Reds will be looking to get back to winning ways having suffered defeat against Cardiff City in the Championship.
Robinson could be coming up against one of the most dangerous wingers in the Championship at the moment. Former Portsmouth and Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Jed Wallace has been in the form of his life in recent weeks.
And his goalscoring tally throughout his career shouldn’t lull the Reds into a false sense of security. Wallace is without doubt Millwall’s biggest threat. He has already contributed with seven goals and four assists in the Championship this season.
The 25-year-old is usually utilised on the right-hand side, but can be deployed further forward. According to a report in the Express via BirminghamLive, Wallace is a £10 million target for Aston Villa.
This is where Robinson comes in. It will mainly be his responsibility to stop Wallace from opening up Forest’s defence with his movement and eye for a defence-splitting pass.
It’s the perfect opportunity for Robinson to back-up his recent good performances by keeping one of the division’s most in-form players quiet.
