2 crosses, 2 interceptions: Todd Kane makes steady Forest debut

Nottingham Forest's on-loan Chelsea defender Todd Kane will know where he needs to improve after making his debut for the club on Saturday.

Nottingham Forest defender Todd Kane has made a solid start at the club after making his debut in the 2-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

Although Kane's arrival on loan from Chelsea was not enough to allow Forest to break out of their slump, his performance in the fixture did show some of his quality. 

The youngster has Championship experience, having featured for Blackburn Rovers previously in his career, and he seemed capable of performing a function at this level on Saturday.

Kane made two interceptions, showing his proactive style of defending, and he also helped out in an attacking sense  - putting two crosses into the box. 

One area where he will be needing to improve though is his passing. The England youth international completed just 65% of his attempts to find a teammate and he will need to be far more accurate if he is to hold down a place in the future. 

Kane should be more comfortable with his distribution once he fully adapts to Forest's methods and he can still look back on his first performance in a red shirt with some encouragement, even if he didn't manage to get the result he would have wanted.
