10 goals in 19 games: But does Tyler Walker have a Nottingham Forest future?

The Nottingham Forest talent has had a streaky run of form with loan club Mansfield Town.

Nottingham Forest striker Lewis Grabban is currently in fine form. The striker has bagged 10 goals in his last 11 games, helping Forest keep up a play-off push.

However, a striker of similar characteristics is currently in good form in front of goal as well. Tyler Walker scored twice at the weekend as his loan side Mansfield picked up a 2-2 draw with Cheltenham Town.

It was his third goal in two games, after finding the net in a 3-0 win over Crewe Alexandra in midweek.

His overall tally for the season is therefore impressive. Walker has 10 goals in 19 games, a solid return for the Nottingham Forest owned youngster.

But, does he have a future at Forest?

 

His goals have come in streaks this season. His notch v Crewe on Tuesday night was his first in seven games. Before that, he scored three in three, but that was after another barren spell of four games. This all came after he netted four goals in his opening three games for the club.

That level of inconsistency is simply not going to impress Aitor Karanka and co back at the City Ground.

Considering he is now 22-years-old and playing in League Two, something more fluid would be expected. Considering the fact Nottingham Forest’s current staff decided that Ben Brereton had no future at the City Ground, it is hard to see Walker faring any better.

He may have 10 goals in 19 games, but the reality is Walker should start considering a future away from Nottingham Forest.
