Nottingham Forest winger Joe Lolley capped an impressive October by winning the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month in the EFL Championship.

The ex-Huddersfield Town man lifted the Reds into top six contention with a string of stunning strikes during the month.

Alongside his recent accolade, Lolley also topped our Player of the Month poll on Seat Pitch to claim our award too. If the 26-year-old can continue his rich vein of form then Forest have a real player on their hands.

Lolley was victorious in our poll ahead of Lewis Grabban in second and Joao Carvalho who claimed third place.

After rising through the non-league ranks with Kidderminster Harriers, Lolley moved to Huddersfield Town where he played 80 times during a four-year stint in West Yorkshire.

Unknown Quantity

The 26-year-old was perhaps something of an unknown quantity when he signed for Forest in January, although he has really come of age this season.

His goal and assist in the 2-0 win over Middlesbrough at the start of October was befitting of Lolley, who showed that he can score and create goals for the team.

Looking at Huddersfield’s form this season it is a wonder whether or not boss David Wagner is somewhat regretting his decision to cash in on the exciting Lolley.

The Terriers’ loss is Forest’s gain, however, and on current form, he is proving himself to be one of the very best players in the second tier.

The Reds face Stoke City this weekend and those of a Forest persuasion will be hoping that their man of the moment can fire the team to another invaluable three points.
