Confirmation and additional subs to follow.

Shouldn't read too much into the result, Forest only really got on top in the final 20 minutes, until then it had been all us and we had two goals disallowed (one very unfairly apparently).

Far better to get Lambert's first loss out of the way in preseason so he can learn from it and make the changes necessary so it doesn't happen too often in the season itself.

Heard he made a few good tackles, interception and a key block but not really heard an overall verdict.

Not reading anything into the result but the fact that forest scored 3 suggests Lambert needs to find his first choice back four and get them into shape pretty quickl.

Players fitness is always key in these games, i would prefer a 3-1 loss than wining 31 and gettng more injuries tbh,looking at that squad we must be honest and say we need at least 2 or 3 more experianced players if Lambert is to d anyhting this seaso.

Forget about the disallowed goals, the records will show we only score one..... again! It is so obvious we need a quality striker, urgently. Come on PL, so far so good in the markets, lets not forget a striker pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee

Sorry to be negative but the youth will only ever take us forward as impact subs or good back up, we need more quality all round. Another experienced CB, a LB, a creative midfielder to replace Makoun (lets face it) and a STRIKER WHO SCORES please! Its clear as day we need more fire power
