Nottingham Forest ace Joe Lolley looks to have seen the funny side of his ‘walk of shame’

https://www.nottinghampost.com/sport/football/football-news/nottingham-forest-ace-joe-lolley-3174283Nottingham Forest ace Joe Lolley appears to have seen the funny side of having to make a “walk of shame” at the City Ground on Saturday. It wasn’t the start to the Championship campaign the Reds would have hoped for at the weekend, as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to West Bromwich Albion in Sabri Lamouchi’s first game in charge. And it was a pretty quiet afternoon for the club’s reigning Player of the Year, with Lolley not at his influential best as the Baggies hit back with two goals before the break, following an early strike from Matty Cash. It saw him substituted with less than 20 minutes to go in the match – and to rub further salt in the wound on a disappointing day, the winger fell victim to one of the new rules introduced this season. Substitutes are now required to leave the pitch at the nearest point on the touchline, rather than at the halfway line, and must head straight to the technical area or dressing room. Lamouchi’s decision to bring off Lolley meant the 26-year-old had to make his exit at the far side of the pitch and traipse past the away fans – jubilant at their team being in front – to make his way to the home dugout, which is now the one closer to the Bridgford Stand.
