Nottingham Forest went fourth in the Championship with a demolition job on a hapless QPR side.

The Reds played against 10-men for most of the second half after Lee Wallace was sent off for denying Joe Lolley an obvious goalscoring opportunity.


Goals from Tobias Figueiredo, Lewis Grabban, Joao Carvalho and Alfa Semedo settled the contest and saw Forest home.

Following another win on the road, Nottingham Forest News analysed the performance by rating the players out of 10.

Brice Samba – 7

Dealt with what he had to with relative ease. A quiet night for the Congolese stopper.

Matty Cash – 7

Another workmanlike performance from the right-back who got into the game more in the second half.

Joe Worrall – 8

A steady showing from Worrall. Didn’t have loads to do really but coped well with the threat of Jordan Hugill.

Tobias Figueiredo – 8

Was in the right place at the right time to open the scoring and is looking more composed with each start he is handed by Lamouchi.

Jack Robinson – 7

Was booed all night by the home crowd but dealt with it well and put in an assured performance for the team.

Ben Watson – 8

Produced a magnificent tackle to set Sammy Ameobi away to create Forest’s second goal and was largely impressive throughout.

Tiago Silva – 9

Wow! Supporters will quickly run out of superlatives to describe Silva if he keeps playing as he did at QPR. Was incredible in possession and highlighted his versatility in a deeper role.

Albert Adomah – 6

A tough night at the office for Adomah who struggled to shake the ring rust off having not started a game since September.

Joe Lolley – 7

Was fouled for the red card and despite some frustrating moments, he was never frightened to ask for the ball.

Sammy Ameobi – 7

Another decent performance from the winger. Occasionally gets caught in possession but finished the night with two assists.

Lewis Grabban – 8

Impossible not to praise Grabban when he finishes the game with a goal. Was on hand to tap home Ameobi’s cross for goal number eight of the campaign.

John Bostock (Lolley, 75′) – 6

His first act in the game involved referee Stephen Martin showing him a yellow card. Otherwise, he kept things neat and tidy.

Joao Carvalho (Adomah, 60′) – 7

Much better from the Portuguese maestro. Took his goal superbly well and looked to have a point to prove following his introduction.

Alfa Semedo (Grabban, 85′) – N/A

Was only on five minutes but capped the victory with his second goal in a Forest shirt.
