Defender Joe Worrall is already looking ahead to the game against Middlesbrough at the Riverside on Monday.

He sent a message talking up the vital three points, which helped the Reds close the gap on second to just three points ahead of tonight’s fixtures.

Tiago Silva’s 49th-minute strike was enough to secure all three points for the Reds.

 

It wasn’t the best game for the neutral. However, Sabri Lamouchi’s men won’t be bothered, they’ll just be delighted to have picked up a crucial three points in the race for promotion.

They return to action against Middlesbrough at the Riverside on Monday.

It won’t be easy, as Middlesbrough held Forest to a draw back in December, on a very frustrating night at the City Ground.

Ryan Yates had given the Reds the lead midway through the first-half. However, Paddy McNair converted a penalty with under 10 minutes of normal time left to play to secure the away side a point.

The Reds have put themselves in a fantastic position following last night’s win, and Lamouchi will be desperate for them to build on it with another win.

They have got a run of fixtures coming up against sides below them in the table. If they want to challenge West Brom and Leeds for automatic promotion, then this is the time to show it.
