Sabri Lamouchi’s men were in need of the three points. They had suffered disappointing defeats recently against Birmingham City and Charlton Athletic, before being held to a goalless draw against Queens Park Rangers at the weekend.

But the Reds now head into Monday’s clash against Middlesbrough at the Riverside sat third in the Championship as it stands.

One player who did impress in a solid away performance by the Reds was Tiago Silva.

The 26-year-old had given the Reds the lead after 49 minutes with a well-taken finish. Not only this, but he was the one player who was making everything tick.

The Reds struggled to keep hold of possession in the first-half, with a number of sloppy passes going astray. Silva was the one player who was keeping hold of the ball well.

Lamouchi may have been tempted to drop the midfielder into a deeper role due to Samba Sow’s absence through injury.

But the Frenchman was right to keep the 26-year-old in a more advanced position for this game.

‘Outrageous’, ‘Fantastic’

And plenty of Nottingham Forest fans have lauded the midfielder. Silva had only scored once in the Championship prior to last night’s strike, and many supporters love seeing his name on the scoresheet.
