We’ll get the knives out for that performance tomorrow, but for now, we’ll give you the drier, statistical stuff surrounding that 3-0 defeat at home to Nottingham Forest.

That was our first defeat in the league at home to Forest since the late seventies, and the first home defeat of any kind since 1991. In the here and now, we have now just one win in our last 10, and we haven’t won a game by two or more goals this calendar year.

Pawel Olkowski had been named at right-back initially but illness meant Mark Little took his place with Luke Murphy coming onto the bench.
