Most post match press conferences given by Forest boss Colin Calderwood sees him picking the positives from the most dire of circumstances. But following this latest defeat at Home Park to Plymouth, he finds no redeeming features in the game.
Forest have yet to pick up so much as a point on their travels so far this campaign and the pressure is mounting on him to turn things round.
Speaking to the official site, CC said. It was just a dull game if I'm honest and we didn't do things well enough. The game was stop - start because of the number of fouls, the referee was conned on too many occasions. We took Perch off because we were concerned about the referee's decisions and were worried that he would pick up another booking. But apart from one or two chances in the second half we just weren't good enough, when we had the ball we didn't use it well enough. There are things we could have done better and there is massive room for improvement in our delivery.'
'Massive room for improvement' could prove to be the understatement of the year, with the Reds' propping up the rest of the division. Forest face a tough away game on Tuesday night, with a trip to former player Brian Laws, at Sheffield Wednesday. If we are to get anything from that game, we're going to have to look sharper at the back. Another avoidable goal from defensive errors cost us again at Plymouth and Calderwood really needs to address the problems in that department now.
Morgan and Chambers are coming in for some severe criticism from supporters and rightly so. Both look like fish out of water in this division and have been found out on many occasions so far this season. One decision for the manager has been made easier, with the suspension of Morgan, following his red card at Plymouth. Joel Lynch is the natural replacement at Centre Half, but Chambers needs replacing at Right Back. If Calderwood sees fit to put Perch at Right Back and drop his pet boy, then things might begin looking a little brighter. That's what the fans have been crying out for all season, maybe it's time for the manager to listen, before it's too late.
