Collymore: This is how Nottingham Forest must improve

Nottingham Forest 2

Former Nottingham Forest star Stan Collymore wants the side to up their chance conversion rate.

Former Nottingham Forest striker Stan Collymore has urged the club to become more lethal in front of goal if they are to build on their table-topping form.

This is despite star striker Britt Assombalonga netted five goals in his opening six games.

Collymore was speaking after the 1-1 East Midlands derby, arguing Stuart Pearce's side must be less wasteful.

While Assomalonga landed two of his three shots on target, and finding the net with one of them, those around him were less clinical.

Forest attempted 16 shots in total in Sunday's contest, testing the goalkeeper with only three.

The biggest culprit was Henri Lansbury, who attempted five efforts and found the target with none of them.

This season in total Forest have had 82 shots on goal with 28 on target, with an average of 4.7 per game. Norwich City lead the league in this area with 6.5 on target per game.
