Forest may have scraped past Bradford in the first round of the EFL Cup earlier this month, but that is all that Chris Hughton‘s men have had to shout about following a horror start to their 2021-22 Championship campaign.
Four consecutive defeats to Coventry City, Blackburn Rovers, Bournemouth and Stoke City have left Forest rooted to the bottom of the table as the only side yet to pick up a single point in the season, and they are certainly not guaranteed any form of success in next weekend’s battle with Derby County.
Last time out, Josh Tymon‘s 66th-minute winner for Stoke stretched Hughton’s side’s winless run in the Championship to 10 matches – as well as representing their fifth consecutive loss in the second tier – but the return of a certain Manchester United loanee should bring a much-needed injection of optimism.
Indeed, James Garner has returned to the club after firing in four goals from 20 Championship outings last term, and the 20-year-old would do well to pick up where he left off at Forest, especially with the pressure weighing greater on Hughton’s shoulders with each passing defeat.
Forest have at least managed to progress further than they did in the 2020-21 EFL Cup – where they suffered a first-round defeat to Barnsley – and they have only been dumped out in the second round once since 2010, losing 4-1 to Wigan Athletic at this stage in the 2012-13 season.

Carrying on the theme from their final game of pre-season – a 1-0 defeat to Celta Vigo – Wolves have been sunk by a goal to nil in their two Premier League opening encounters with Champions League-chasing Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
With Harry Kane watching on from the bench as Santo returned to the ground he brought European football to, Dele Alli calmly rolled the ball home from the penalty spot in the ninth minute, and Wolves had no answer for the remainder of the 90 minutes.
