Revealed: 96% of Forest fans want Diogo Goncalves to start against Stoke

A huge majority of the Nottingham Forest fans that answered our poll want Diogo Goncalves to start in the Carabao Cup Third Round tie with Stoke on Wednesday.

The talented 21-year-old joined the Reds on loan from Portuguese giants Benfica in the summer but has since only made two Championship appearances and one in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

This game against fellow second tier side Stoke will offer Forest boss Aitor Karanka a chance to rotate his squad though, and the Spaniard is likely to use a number of the 16 signings that the Reds made this summer.

Goncalves is an exciting winger who could replace his compatriot Joao Carvalho in the side. Forest’s record signing Carvalho has started to perform in recent weeks and scored his first goal for the club in the 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday. Despite his form, 96 per cent of Forest fans said that they would like to see Goncalves start this time out. Check out the full results below.
