With the help of Who Scored, here is a look at the top 10 players in the Nottingham Forest squad when it comes to short passes completed so far this season.

10) Nicholas Ioannou (143)

Some fans are still undecided on the left-back, although he does creep into this list in tenth place.

9) Luke Freeman (147)

Hasn’t really got going yet since checking in on Trentside on loan from Sheffield United and will be striving to improve.

8) Joe Lolley (153)

Scored the winner in Chris Hughton’s first game in charge, although is perhaps yet to scale the heights which Forest fans know he is capable of.

7) Harry Arter (154)

The man who arrived from Bournemouth on loan looks to have picked up another injury but when called upon he has looked decent.

6) Sammy Ameobi (187)

The winger has made 11 appearances for the Reds this season and like Lolley is yet to really find his very best form.


5) Ryan Yates (239)

One of Forest’s best performers this season, the academy graduate’s passing statistics don’t really come as a big surprise.

4) Scott McKenna (250)

Arguably Forest’s best signing for many years. The Scotland international knows when to play and when to clear, highlighting maturity beyond his years.

3) Cyrus Christie (280)

The ex-Derby man gets his fair share of criticism, although he is near the top when it comes to most key statistics for Forest this season.

2) Tobias Figueiredo (313)

The Portuguese star has only played nine times this season. Some have questioned his ability to play out from the back, although these figures perhaps suggest it’s not as bad as anticipated.

1) Jack Colback (331)

Some of his cynics will sight that some of Colback’s passes are too short. The ex-Newcastle man is getting back to his best after a tough start and does his job of getting the ball to the more creative players with aplomb.
