Nottingham Forest boss Martin O’Neill oversaw a 2-1 win over Swansea City at the weekend, which saw the Reds go within two points of the top-six.

Bristol City and Derby County hold games in hand over Forest and all they can do at this stage is keep winning.

According to the Nottingham Post, O’Neill has cast one eye towards next season in terms of a member of staff he would like to add.

Tommy Johnson is wanted to form part of a talent-spotting team that can help Forest recruit British talent.

Naturally, that might spark speculation as to who the Reds want to land this summer.

One man who should be firmly on Forest’s radar is Portsmouth youngster Jamal Lowe.

The 24-year-old has risen through the non-league ranks and is having a fine season in League One with Pompey.

A versatile forward, Lowe has netted 14 goals and contributed seven assists this season.

He netted in yesterday’s Checkatrade Trophy Final at Wembley which Kenny Jackett’s men won 7-6 on penalties.

Given his prowess in the final third, it seems likely that Jackett will have to fend off some summer interest.

Forest have been heavily reliant on the goals of Lewis Grabban and the creativity of Joe Lolley and Joao Carvalho this season.

Some help for that trio wouldn’t harm and Lowe would be a decent signing.

Of course, he would have to prove his worth in the Championship but at 24 there is still a lot of potential in the dazzling forward.
