Nottingham Forest's Kelvin Wilson comments on the strength of Tyler Walker

Nottingham Forest defender Kelvin Wilson has revealed what's impessed him about teammate Tyler Walker.

Nottingham Forest defender Kelvin Wilson has explained to Forest Player what’s impressed him most about young forward Tyler Walker.

Walker has been used sparingly by manager Dougie Freedman since he replaced old boss Stuart Pearce, but Wilson has predicted a big future for the teenage striker while explaining what he’s noticed about him during training.

“He’s only 19 but he’s so strong, he’s half as big as some of the lads but he can hold us off and he’s not afraid to put himself about as well,” said Wilson.

“His technique is really good. He’s got a great attitude and I think his Dad will keep him grounded. He’s got a good career ahead of himself.

Walker’s natural strength is impressive and something, which is very important in relation to the Championship.

It’s a very competitive division and one where a lot of teams will target younger players in the opposition.

Sides could be tricked into thinking that their defenders can get the better of a player like Walker, but Wilson, who is a big defender, clearly thinks that would be a naïve tactic.

He has to use that to his advantage while working on his tactical understanding and pace to create a number of qualities, which will allow him to get a higher number of chances.

Forest have one game left this season against Cardiff City tomorrow and it will be interesting to see if Freedman gives Walker a run out.

If he plays, it’s a great chance for him to make the most of the opportunity to create some momentum for himself and to show the manager that he can be a key component in the team’s attack for next season.
