Former Forest goalkeeper Mark Crossley insists that Joe Worrall could leave the club if the club do not arrest their current slide.

The club endured a terrible start to the season under manager Chris Hughton.

Forest drew 1-1 with bitter rivals Derby County prior to the international break which left them rock-bottom of the Championship table, with that point the first they collected this season prior to this weekend.

Do you think that Forest will be fine financially?

Yes, there is nothing to worry about

Worrall was linked away in the summer window, with newly-promoted Brentford seemingly interested in a swoop.

No deal came off and Worrall remains at the club, but Crossley thinks he could well look to leave next summer if Forest’s season continues in its current vein.

The 24-year-old has been with the club since 2015 and has a contract until 2024, making a total of 138 appearances.

Crossley said: “If it’s a poor season, these players are going to be on their way because he’s a good player, he’s going to be a top, top player. I actually walked past him one day when I went down to watch a Forest game, and I knew he was tall, but I didn’t realise he was that big!

“I am 6 foot 4 and he was towering above me, me as a goalkeeper, if I was playing behind someone like that, I’d be very, very happy because I’d be getting him heading the balls instead of me coming and catching them.

“I really, really like him, he seems to have a really good temperament.”

Forest are back in action after the international break against and will hope to record their first win of the campaign.
