Forest New Boys Settle Quickly

Michail Antonio, Britt Assombalonga and Chris Burke have started each Championship fixture together with goalkeeper Karl Darlow and although Assombalonga has made most of the headlines, Antonio has been a pleasant surprise in terms of his goalscoring record while Burke has also become a key member of the Reds line-up.

Michael Mancienne is another newcomer to have quickly become a regular for Pearce, starting all but one of Forest's league games to date.

Overall, 18 players have made a start in the Championship while Lars Veldwijk, Stephen McLaughlin, Jamaal Lascelles and Jorge Grant have appeared off the bench only.
