Steve Sutton has delivered Brennan Johnson some advice following a 2-0 win for Nottingham Forest against Bristol City.
The 20-year-old opened the scoring for the Forest, with James Garner adding a second goal in the second half.
A comfortable win sees Forest three points off a play-off place and this was a welcome return to winning ways.
Steve Cooper’s team were rarely threatened by Bristol City and on the whole, it was a sound team performance.
Johnson made it 11 goals and six assists for the campaign and his season continues to go from strength to strength.
The Reds were far too good for Nigel Pearson’s team and they head into next weekend’s game with Sheffield United in good spirits.
Sutton was quizzed on Johnson and his next move by BBC Radio Nottingham after the game yesterday.
He thinks he’s fine at Forest and believes he should stay at the club next season too.
The former goalkeeper told BBC Radio Nottingham: “I hope whoever is advising him tells him to stay here.
“It’s alright going to Arsenal or Manchester United but ultimately, how many times a season would he play there?
“You’d have to say not many. Stay here and you’ll play every game. For me, it’s a no-brainer.”
Forest have to keep Johnson
The boy is a future star and quite simply, Forest can ill-afford to let Johnson leave the City Ground.
His contract situation is a concern. Naturally, the Reds would dearly love to get him tied to a new deal but if they can it’d be a massive coup.
Forest are buzzing with Johnson at the forefront of everything good about Cooper’s team.
Next season could well be a big season for Forest and playing every game would surely be a big thing for Johnson to consider.
The Premier League is waiting for Johnson but right now, the City Ground is the very best for his development.
