Forest defender Lichaj highlights need to score more goals

Forest City Ground

Nottingham Forest have endured yet another disappointing season in the Championship.

Nottingham Forest defender Eric Lichaj has told the club’s official website that his side need to score more goals.

The USA international full-back has suggested that if Forest are able to find the opposition net more frequently next season, then they will be in contention of a top-six finish in the Championship.

“It’s been tough with the way results have gone but hopefully we can end on a high, get everyone ready for next season and hopefully do something special then,” the 27-year-old told Forest’s official website.

“If we can get some more goals next season I’m sure we’ll be up there towards the end,” added Lichaj.

Forest have scored 41 goals and have conceded 46 in 45 Championship matches this season. The Reds have created over 450 chances in the league, but they simply have not been clinical enough.

A long-term injury to striker Britt Assombalonga played a role in that, and hopefully next season Forest will be stronger in attack.

Forest are one of the biggest clubs of England, and they should be at least challenging for a top-six finish in the Championship.

Hopefully for the fans, the appointment of a new manager at the end of the season and some shrewd signings in the summer transfer window will enable Forest to make a push for the playoffs next season.
