Am I the only one wishing Paul Dummett got a longer ban?

Until our last three games, things have been going swimmingly.

Dwight Gayle and Mitro knocking them in for fun, while our midfield and our defence looked solid.

My only gripes would have been why is Perez appearing, as he looks lost half/most of the time.

….and why is Paul Dummett playing?

Targeted by wingers and looking off the pace, out of position and couldn’t tackle to save a life.

Now, we picked up two players in the summer to challenge him for left-back and whilst I understand Gamez is now injured, surely Lazarr, or even Atsu, can do a better job?

I can’t see what Paul Dummett brings to games: he doesn’t cross the ball, doesn’t support the winger, and if the opposition has a decent/pacey winger he is in a world of trouble.

I was hoping the one good thing that would come from Forest and the Ref persecuting us, was a three match ban for the underachieving left-back, who somehow has gone backwards in his development. Though it as turned out to be only a one game suspension, with claims on Tuesday morning that even that is to be appealed.

This would have allowed someone better to fill in for him (Clark, Lazaar?) and hopefully come the winter window we can get rid of him to a team more suited to his ability…

I see a stand-in doing a great job in our next match, sadly just to get benched for the following game.

Hope I am wrong.

Howay the lads.
