Chris Hughton has made some interesting and potentially exciting comments regarding his Nottingham Forest team selection on Saturday.

The boss delivered some news on his injured players ahead of Saturday’s trip to Millwall during an interview with Nottinghamshire Live.

Hughton shuffled his pack in the week and saw his side claim a first win in eight games with a 2-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

Teenager Alex Mighten and young defender Loic Mbe Soh were both called upon, with both showcasing undoubted talent in the win.

With Tobias Figueiredo and Anthony Knockaert back from suspension this week, the boss has some decisions to make.

His comments, however, do suggest he could stick with his Tuesday night victors.

He told Nottinghamshire Live: “These are the decisions you want to be making.

“Sometimes they are not the easiest of decisions and they can can be things you think about longer than others.

“I would certainly rather that, than having to pick a team based on the only options I’ve got.

“Credit to those who have come in, in particular the two young ones, because I thought they did very well.”

Stick or twist?

It would be very harsh on either Mighten or Mbe Soh were they to drop out this weekend.

After waiting so long to find a winning formula, Hughton must consider giving the same eleven another run-out.

Mighten’s pace terrorised the Wednesday defence on Tuesday and provided a welcome injection of energy.

Many supporters have been surprised not to see Mbe Soh feature more – especially considering the form of Figueiredo.

The Portuguese performer has been out of sorts for months now and could do with taking out of the firing line.

It will lead to a pretty disgruntled timeline on Twitter if the young guns are dropped to the bench again this weekend.

His comments do suggest, however, that they’ll keep their place in the team for the trip to the New Den.

Mighten and Mbe Soh look to be the future of the club and trusting the younger players could be just what Forest need right now.
