Manchester United defender Scott Wootton is enjoying his loan with Nottingham Forest.

Forest have only lost one of the five games Wootton has played in since joining in January and that run has pulled them out of the drop zone.

The Birkenhead boy said he had no hesitation in swapping Old Trafford for a dogfight.

He said: “It’s the type of challenge I thrive on. Forest are a massive club, I’ve always thought that. Not one bit of me didn’t fancy it, so I was made up. I was delighted to come.

“You’ve got to stand up and be a man. The only way you’ll get out of it is to roll your sleeves up and fight.

“There’s no place to hide, you have to be up for the battle. I’m loving it. I’m getting games and, being young, it’s vital for me to get first-team experience.”
