Stan Collymore comments on Nottingham Forest's struggles, sends message to Fawaz Al-Hasawi

Nottingham Forest were beaten 2-1 by Reading on Tuesday night.

After Nottingham Forest lost for the eighth time in their last ten Championship matches, Stan Collymore took to Twitter to make a plea to club owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi.

Forest were hammered 3-0 by Brentford on Saturday, and it didn't get much better for interim manager Paul Williams on Tuesday night, as his side squandered a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 at Reading.

Ben Osborn's opener at the Madejski Stadium was cancelled out by second half goals from Matej Vydra and Oliver Norwood, and the defeat put Forest down into 17th place in the Championship table, nine points clear of the relegation zone.

It's a sorry state of affairs for Forest, who remain one of the biggest clubs in the Championship, and their current struggles have caught the attention of former striker Stan Collymore.

Collymore, who smashed 41 goals in 65 games for Forest during the 1990's, took to Twitter after the Reading game to talk about the situation.

Collymore admitted that Forest's malaise is 'worrying', before send a message to the club's owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi, who has been overseeing the club since 2012.

Al-Hasawi has received stern criticism for his running of Forest, and Collymore urged him to improve his communication with fans and ex-players ahead of the club's 150th anniversary, which former striker Collymore believes is being overlooked due to a lack of direction at the City Ground.
