Veteran striker Andy Cole has admitted he is not happy to stay on the bench at Nottingham Forest.

Cole joined his home-town club on a one-year deal in the summer, but has started only once for Colin Calderwood's side.

He has made five substitute appearances for Forest and was given just a late run-out in Saturday's 0-0 draw at Charlton Athletic.

The former England international is eager to play on a regular basis and is likely to discuss his future with Forest boss Calderwood.

"I did not come here to sit and watch," Cole told the Nottingham Evening Post.

"If I am not going to [start] there is no point me being here.

"I've never picked up money for nothing in my career, and I'm not going to start now."
