Nottingham Forest are stuck in a bit of a lull at the moment. They are, in fact, just in the play-off positions following their excellent win against Leeds last time out, but Aitor Karanka’s job hangs in the balance as he has overseen a poor run of form which put their promotion charge in doubt.
One thing that should be on the agenda this month is a signing that will bolster the defence. Forest have protected their goal well this season, conceding 29 goals in just 26 games this season, but their reliance on 32-year-old Daniel Fox is a worry – the fact that they still have 35-year-old Michael Dawson in reserve is also a worry.
With his job in the balance, it remains to be seen whether Forest’s owners will back the Spanish coach this month, but they shouldn’t be adverse to taking a dip into the free-agent market.
