Nottingham Forest enjoyed a 2-1 win over Luton Town and Matty Cash was praised by some supporters for his contribution. The 22-year-old has shone as a makeshift right-back under Sabri Lamouchi this season, having filled in for the injured Tandayi Darikwa & Carl Jenkinson, and was outstanding at Kenilworth Road on Saturday afternoon.

Cash set a Championship record for tackles (11) over the weekend and played his part in Forest returning to winning ways. Lamouchi could have had an issue at right-back after losing both his first and second-choice due to lengthy injuries, but he arguably has the best option in Cash and could stick with him for the season.

Against Luton, the Englishman made 59 touches, completed 50% of his 18 passes, made five interceptions, whipped in three crosses, made 11 tackles, created one chance, made four clearances, drew one foul, made one successful dribble and won three aerial duels.

Is Matty Cash the best right-back in the Championship?





This season, Cash has made 16 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating four goals. Forest boast the third-best defensive record in the Championship (13), and only two clubs (Bristol City & West Bromwich Albion) have lost fewer games.

The Midlands derby is next for Forest – Derby (home) on November 9.
