David Prutton claims 28-year-old Forest man should take set pieces over Morgan Gibbs-White

David Prutton, a former Nottingham Forest player, believes Harry Toffolo should take set pieces over Morgan Gibbs-White.

The 28-year-old, who has previously been awarded the club’s finest crosser, has recently excelled with his final product.

Gibbs-White has struggled with set-piece delivery this season, with the 23-year-old failing to repeat his performances from last year.

West Ham United midfielder James Ward-Prowse gave Steve Cooper’s team a lot of problems with his delivery, and the Reds really needed someone like him to contribute from set pieces.

The Sky Sports pundit stated on the Garibaldi Red Podcast that he feels for Gibbs-White but that a change should be made.

“If he takes all of the set pieces and they’re all crap, you immediately think he’s garbage.”

“However, if no one else steps forward to take them, the odds are always stacked against him.”

“If the manager has seen that he’s struggling, get someone else to take the set pieces, but the other question then becomes who’s the next off the rank to be able to do that.”

The podcast’s host, journalist Matt Davies, suggested that Toffolo would be next in line, to which former Red Prutton agreed.

Toffolo progressing really well

The 28-year-old put in another strong performance on Sunday, following up on his two assists and clean sheet against Aston Villa.

Toffolo is a fantastic guy both on and off the field; he understands what it takes to be a member of a football team, and the defender gives it his best every time he gets onto the field.

Toffolo wasn’t everyone’s favorite player last season, but he’s definitely improved this season, with his deliveries from the left side looking deadly.
