Nottingham Forest: Fans slam Alex Mighten’s display v Preston

Nottingham Forest: Fans slam Alex Mighten’s display v Preston -Nottingham Forest News

Flocking to Twitter, many Nottingham Forest supporters were left unimpressed with the performance of winger Alex Mighten despite their comfortable 3-0 win over Preston North End on Saturday.

Steve Cooper’s men have been on a solid run of form lately, having lost just once in their last 10 Championship outings, recording six victories in that time after a very lacklustre start to 2021/22.

Does Mighten need a loan move away?

Yes, needs some experience

No, keep him at the City Ground!

They have been steadily climbing up the table and, after two successive draws, they sealed another win as they fired three past Preston at the City Ground. Two goals from Lewis Grabban and one from Jack Colback secured a routine three points in what was a positive afternoon for Forest and Cooper.

However, one man who didn’t impress some fans was Mighten after his largely anonymous display – especially going by his statistics.

Before being hooked off midway through the second half, the 19-year-old took fewer touches (25) than any Forest starter on the day – including goalkeeper Brice Samba with 40 (SofaScore).

Attracting criticism from some Forest fans for being a ‘weak link’, Mighten lost the majority of his ground duels and came in as the joint lowest-rated player (6.6) to start against Preston alongside Phillip Zinckernagel (SofaScore).

It’s little wonder these supporters took to Twitter to voice their criticism of the teenager given his ineffective performance.

“What did Cooper see as a weakness in #PNE to bring Mighten in? Again he’s been largely ineffective. Needs a season in League 1.”

“Not convinced with Alex Mighten. He is a good dribbler but still too weak. Oli Burke was a man, Mighten is a boy. Think a loan spell could do him some good”
