Nottingham Forest’s loaned in midfielder Jack Colback may well have played his last game for the club, after he picked up his 15th booking of the season in their Good Friday defeat to Sheffield United.

Discipline has been a problem with Nottingham Forest over the course of the season and one of the main culprits has been midfielder Jack Colback, who has been at the City Ground on loan from Newcastle United.

The loaned in midfielder has not been sent off once in his time for the club, but in their defeat to Sheffield United on Friday, Colback picked up his 16th booking of the season in all competitions. He was booked for simulation after going down in the box after 18 minutes with the scores at 0-0.

The game went on to finish 2-0 to Sheffield United after Yohan Benalouane was sent off just after the start of the second half, with goals from Mark Duffy giving Forest their fourth loss in as many games while climbing back into the automatic promotion places.

Despite his numerous bookings, Colback has been in impressive form for Forest over the course of the season, playing in 38 games in all competitions, scoring three goals and providing two assists for his teammates along the way.

Colback has said that he would be keen on a permanent move to the City Ground once his loan deal with the club expires at the end of the season. With his future at Newcastle looking bleak, he may not have played his last game for the club despite picking up his third ban.
