Although Forest have a strong squad who are capable of finishing in the top six of the Championship this season, the former Middlesbrough manager may need players from the Under-23 side in the coming months.

It must be very encouraging for Forest fans and the youth-team players that Karanka was at the Under-23 side’s game against their Cardiff City counterparts at the City Ground on Monday evening.
