Martin O’Neill was officially appointed as Nottingham Forest manager on January 15th, returning to the City Ground for the first time since his decade spent there as a player.
Since his appointment as manager, the Reds have managed just one win – a 3-1 triumph over Wigan Athletic, sandwiched between defeats to Bristol City and Birmingham City.
Forest summer signing Lewis Grabban hasn’t started for the club since O’Neill’s first game in charge. Daryl Murphy has instead been tasked with leading the line ahead of the 31-year-old striker.

However, Murphy has failed to shine and hasn’t found the back of the net since being handed the keys to the Forest attack by the new manager. The time to bring Grabban back into the starting XI has come.
The former Sunderland hitman has been in very decent form this season and has proved to be utterly prolific at this level in the past. Forest’s best chance of making the play-offs, and making O’Neill’s first campaign in charge a successful one, lies with letting Grabban lead the line.
