Former Nottingham Forest star Mark Crossley has told The Transfer Tavern that he is worried by the lack of goals coming from the strikers at his old side.
As per WhoScored, Forest are one of the lowest scoring teams in the Championship this season so far with just four goals to their name.
Part of that is down to the lack of goals up front. Between the two of them, forwards Lyle Taylor and Lewis Grabban have just the one goal combined, the former scoring in Forest’s 2-1 defeat to Coventry City at the start of the campaign.
Disappointed with Forest's business?
For Crossley, that is a huge concern, with the former Forest goalkeeper believing that manager Chris Hughton was dying for the club to bring in some new forwards during the summer transfer window.
“It’s a worry for everybody. Where are the goals going to come from?” Crossley said in an interview with TT. “You just can’t see where the goals are going to come from at the moment and it’s a big worry.
“Chris Hughton must’ve been thinking, ‘I’ve got to get a couple of strikers in.’ I know those fans and they’re getting frustrated already.”
With the window now closed, Hughton will obviously have to work with what he has got.
Grabban’s overall Championship record is pretty good, so maybe he sparks into life soon.
