Nottingham Forest were largely disappointing with a 2-0 loss to Bournemouth last night to ensure a second straight loss

The reds were consistently the second best and dropped back after only three minutes in the vitality stage

Chris Hughton will be learning a lot about his squad all the time, and with a tough string of fixtures to come, there is no time to dwell
