Nottingham Forest fans predict that Liam Bridcutt is going to be brought back from the cold by Martin O’Neill.
Bridcutt fell out of favour under Aitor Karanka, and has made just four appearances for Forest this season.
The central midfielder is very proven in the Championship though, and there is a feeling from some that he was underused by Karanka.
As a result, many Forest fans are now predicting that O’Neill’s appointment could be great news for the 29-year-old.

Be interesting to see if bridcutt gets a bit more of a look in under MON. Memory serves me right he was part of his sunderland squad.— Matthew Fletcher (@redfletch83) January 15, 2019
Just spotted @ZachClough and bridcutt in pictures with Mon good hopefully he gives these lads a new lease of life— Juebb (@juliebuxtonberr) January 15, 2019
Forest have a wealth of central midfielders available to them, so Bridcutt faces fierce competition for a first-team spot.
The expectation on O’Neill appears to be to guide Forest into a play off spot, with the Reds playing catch up as things stand.
Forest are currently in ninth place in the Championship table, four points away from the play off spaces.
O’Neill will take charge of Forest for the first time at the weekend, when the Reds take on Bristol City.
