"I came to the club as a left back and now we don't play with one," he told the Evening Post.
"So I am in the wilderness a little bit.
"It is a positive thing to know that it is nothing that I have done wrong.
"I was playing at left wing back and I did not feel I was playing too badly.
"But then the manager left me out, explaining that it was a change of formation.

"Before I came to Forest I played as a central defender at Walsall.

"But I am in there to learn the role and see what happens, I want to get back into the habit of playing again."
