Nottingham Forest were beaten 3-0 by Millwall last time out and now face a wait of just under three weeks to try and put things right.

The decision by the authorities to suspend professional football has been taken after a global health pandemic.

Sabri Lamouchi’s team would have relished the chance to put things right at Sheffield Wednesday yesterday.

The break comes with the Reds sat fifth in the Championship and the hope will be that the season can resume.

As the players currently face an unprecedented break in their season at this stage, we look at three losers from play being suspended until April.

The club’s record signing has struggled to force his way into the first-team on a consistent basis this season.

Injury to Tiago Silva had opened the door for the Portuguese maestro, however, and Lamouchi had hinted at a run in the team.

An eye-catching cameo at Middlesbrough was followed up with a start against Millwall.

Although the game against Gary Rowett’s men didn’t exactly go according to plan, he would have relished the chance to shake the ring rust off.

If play resumes in April, Silva is likely to be fit and that could see Carvalho return to the bench.

Bostock earned a reprieve recently, making the bench against Middlesbrough for the first time since November.

He was handed a 12-minute outing against Boro and it was like he’d never been away.

Despite only playing the second half against Millwall last week he was arguably Forest’s best player, with many supporters calling for him to start against Wednesday.

Bostock is on loan until the end of the season from Toulouse and the break might hamper his hopes of a permanent deal.

The 28-year-old will probably see Samba Sow return to fitness when football returns and that could see him back on the fringes.

Walker returned to Forest in January having netted 16 goals for Lincoln City during the first half of the campaign.

He added to his tally against Leeds back in February and it had been hoped that he’d get more chances to play.

With Forest looking to cement a place in the play-off places, however, starting opportunities haven’t been forthcoming.

He started against Charlton as the Reds were beaten 1-0 and has since had to make do with cameo roles.

Having not played loads of football since the turn of the year anyway, Walker will now have to get his eye in all over again.
