After an injury to Michael Dawson at Nottingham Forest, and a suspension to Tobias Figueiredo, we have been discussing the state of the club’s defence.
While The Reds have options to cover for those two, it is debatable whether they are the standard that is required for a team chasing promotion. Aitor Karanka has already hinted at the fact that Forest will seek to make some more signings in January, but first he may need to get rid of some players that are not deemed necessary at the club.
With that in mind, we asked you how many defenders you felt The Reds will need to bring in in the new year, and these were the results:
Clearly, Nottingham Forest fans think that the club need to desperately recruit some new faces in defence, with 68% demanding two or more newcomers. Of that, 48% would be content with just two defenders. Nonetheless, the fans have spoken, and are demanded signings at the back.
