Who was Nottingham Forest's most creative player last season? One clear winner

Nottingham Forest 2

There is one standout performer when it comes to creativity in Nottingham Forest's squad last season.

Nottingham Forest’s manager Dougie Freedman and the club’s fans will be disappointed with the way last season panned out in the Championship.

The side would have had aspirations at the start of the season, under old manager Stuart Pearce, of getting into the top six but they slowly slipped down the table and off the pace finishing in mid-table.

Jack Hunt DF Forest 3 6 101 17 1,265

One of the shining lights of last season for the club was midfielder Michail Antonio who stole the show in terms of the number of goal assists he provided, along with the number of big chances he created.

Antonio has the ability to turn games on his own and he’s something that Forest have to work hard to keep in their squad looking ahead to 2015/2016.

Henri Lansbury is the closest challenger to Antonio in terms of creativity while youngster Ben Osborn also ranks well after some consistent and mature performances in the Nottingham Forest first team.

There is plenty there for Freedman to work with and plenty of creativity for the side to build on moving forward.

If all of the players on this list can improve and their assists and chances created figures, Forest will be in a very good position.
