Nottingham Forest drew for the third game in succession to keep Chris Hughton’s unbeaten run alive.

The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw against Luton Town, battling back after going down to 10-men before the interval.

Following the game we looked at who Forest’s three best players were on the night.

Ryan Yates

Forest’s midfielder is getting better with each passing game and was named Man of the Match by Sky.

Mick McCarthy said during the Sky Sports coverage that Yates had been ‘brilliant’ and he wasn’t far wrong.

The 22-year-old divides Forest fans like no other player but on the evidence of this season, he is improving considerably.

Yates was integral in placing the required pressure on Glen Rea forcing the Luton man to turn into his own net.

The academy graduate seems to have impressed Chris Hughton and he looks like being an important part of his plans.

Anthony Knockaert

The Frenchman was all over the Kenilworth Road pitch never giving the opposition a moment to breathe.

On loan from Fulham until January, the 28-year-old looks like being a really important player for the Reds.

The tricky performer played on the left, right and through the middle at various points of last night – doing a great job wherever he was tasked with playing.

On his day there are few better than Knockaert at Championship level and Hughton will hope for more from a player who excelled under him at Brighton.

With the former France youth international in the team, the Reds will always have a chance of scoring a goal.

Cyrus Christie

Another player who divides opinion is the Forest right-back.

He got his just rewards for another solid performance last night, however, creating the assist for Rea to turn into his own net.

Christie isn’t Matty Cash by any stretch of the imagination but he is a solid Championship performer.

Defensively Christie can perhaps improve, particularly when he goes forward on the attack.

Last night he made three tackles though and finished the game with a 93% pass success ratio (Who Scored).
