Nottingham Forest’s latest news comes as Steve Cooper’s Reds reflect on their 1-1 draw with Clarets at the City Ground.

Callum Hudson-Odoi owes a goal to one of his Nottingham Forest teammates, who gave him some sound advise before his debut on Monday night.

The deadline-day signing was immediately inserted into the Reds’ starting lineup against Burnley. And he commemorated his maiden outing for the club by scoring in spectacular fashion to secure a 1-1 tie.

Morgan Gibbs-White, a teammate, praised Forest for coming from behind to get a point at the City Ground. He chatted with Hudson-Odoi at halftime, when Steve Cooper’s team trailed by a goal, and encouraged the winger to try his luck in front of goal.

“I told him at halftime to go inside and shoot,” Gibbs-White explained. “Stop being nicey-nice and start being selfish.” It’s an incredible finish.”

Hudson-Odoi’s introduction was one of four changes to the starting lineup made by Cooper, who now has a plethora of choices to pick from following the club’s summer transfer transaction. In addition, the hosts switched formations, going with a 4-2-3-1 versus the Clarets.

Cooper has stated that the team would need time to gel due to a number of new arrivals and several players who are fresh to the Premier League. They did, though, show indications of what they are capable of with some fine play on the Trent’s banks.

“It’s better than nothing,” remarked Gibbs-White of the outcome. “We desired three points.” Burnley deserve credit; they’re a solid team. Coming back and getting the point demonstrated excellent character.

“This is the first time this team has played together, so the future looks bright.” “There is only one way up.”

Forest has collected seven points in their first five games. On Saturday, they travel to play champions Manchester City.
