Nottingham Forest Team News

  • Out: Dean Henderson, Giulian Biancone, Chris Wood, Neco Williams, Omar Richards, Scott McKenna
  • Doubt: Keylor Navas, Danilo, Gustavo Scarpa, Jack Colback, Jonjo Shelvey, Jesse Lingard

Steve Cooper’s job at Nottingham Forest this season is one that deserves recognition at the very least. After the club splashed the cash on over twenty players during the transfer window, the job of wrangling an overabundance of pieces into a cohesive unit took a great deal of time, with some fans fearful that the club would not survive in the Premier League.

Now guaranteed of PL football next season, Cooper’s side can celebrate safety before finding the most effective way to trim the fat surrounding what is, on paper, a squad with credible talent and balance that can be struck.

An away day against Palace first aways them, however, and Cooper will be made to contend with no less than six guaranteed absentees, while a further six are listed as doubts at the time of writing, including Keylor Navas and Danilo. Even if the side falls in their final fixture, they can be proud of their efforts after having their backs against the wall.
