Nottingham Forest fell to yet another defeat last night, with Fraizer Campbell’s goal condemning them to a 1-0 loss at the hands of Huddersfield Town.
The defeat to Huddersfield Town means Nottingham Forest have now lost all four games across all competitions this season. Sabri Lamouchi’s side are yet to hit the back of the net and the loss leaves them languishing in the Championship relegation zone after three games.
Lamouchi fielded a much-changed side on Friday night, with a whole host of new signings featuring – including Scotland international Scott McKenna, former Bournemouth man Harry Arter and Fulham loanee Cyrus Christie.
After the game, Lamouchi spoke to BBC Sport about the defeat, admitting that he is feeling the increased pressure on his shoulders. He said:
“I feel the pressure, I can’t say no. The owner gave me all the players I want.
“We need to try to be positive and to find a solution to get out of this situation. The players need something they can turn into a positive and get confidence from.
“I don’t have the answer to how long I will have to turn it around. It would be very easy for me to find an excuse and blame the referee, but I don’t want to find some excuse. Some situations against us have not gone our way and that happens when you’re in a bad situation.”
After the game, Nottingham Forest fans moved to voice their opinions one the game. Here’s what they had to say after the final whistle:
First time we’ve lost the first 3 games of the season in HOW LONG ?!? If you can’t see that we need change, stability and adaptation then realistically what is gonna happen ?

Not even angry. Just sad and resigned to the fact that is it now. Lots of managers will be rubbing their hands at working with some of these players.

Overall a bit better, impressed with Soh.
We need to pass the ball in and behind opponents back line to often we don't prob or play the ball fast enough. Mighten worth a start. Lots of effort from freeman and arter. No service to Taylor at all welcome to forest. Ameobi my MOM
