Nottingham Forest lost 2-0 at home to Norwich City and some fans were baffled at the part played by Alex Mighten.

The youngster was once again on the bench and was only introduced as the game ebbed towards another defeat.

At 18 it would be wrong to place the wrong sort of pressure on his shoulders – but Mighten’s role does seem bizarre.

When called upon he has provided a spark to get things going and a badly-needed injection of energy.

Forest lacked such a quality last night and supporters have taken to Twitter to speak of their frustrations.

 

Mighten has scored two league goals during 2020/21. He fired an equaliser against Millwall at the New Den and scored the winner against Blackburn.

Since that second goal, however, he hasn’t started a game and fans are demanding he is given a proper go.

Hughton might point to the fact that the youngster is still relatively raw but it really can’t get much worse than the last couple of games.

Here is what fans were saying on Twitter regarding the boss’ refusal to play Mighten.
