Nottingham Forest youngster Alex Mighten has told the official website that there is more to come from him.

The 18-year-old has made 19 appearances in all competitions during 2020/21; with eight coming in the starting eleven.

Mighten has found the net twice for Forest this season, scoring in games against Millwall and Blackburn Rovers.

Last week he scored as England under-19s defeated an Arsenal under-23 outfit 6-1 at St George’s Park.

He looks destined for a bright future and plenty of supporters have demanded he plays more during the current campaign.

Mighten concedes, however, that he hasn’t shown his maximum potential during the current campaign.

He told the official website: “I know what I am capable of and I know that I have not fully shown what I am capable of.

“Game time isn’t something I see as a factor, I just go out and show what I can do and add more steps to get people to watch my game.

“I am in the process of getting towards that, I don’t see it as I have time to get there, I just it as now and I am focused on showing people what I can do.

“I am confident in my ability and where I can end up. I’m not trying to hold back or anything, I’m focused on now and proving to everyone what I can do.”

Star quality

Mighten could perhaps have been utilised more during 2020/21 but as he says he’s not yet shown his full potential.

That comment will be exciting in the eyes of supporters, with many believing he has looked good when called upon.

He was a constant menace against Brentford last time out and Hughton has a decision to make ahead of the trip to Cardiff tomorrow.

Mighten is direct, quick and boasts an abundance of skills in his locker.

With more game time he will naturally gain more consistency.

Next season could be a big one for Mighten and he could find himself in contention to be a first-team regular during 2021/22.
