Nottingham Forest beat Wycombe 2-0 at the City Ground yesterday and after the contest midfielder Jack Colback earned praise from the club’s supporters.

The Reds headed into the international break with 12 points to their name from just seven games overseen by Chris Hughton, giving them a platform to build from.

Forest were largely comfortable against the Chairboys and a Lyle Taylor brace ensured a second win of the week for the Reds.

Plenty of positives emerged from the game and one of those was the performance of Colback.

The 31-year-old hasn’t enjoyed the best of starts to his third spell on Trentside – although that’s perhaps to be expected.

Colback has played 10 times this season but before yesterday had failed to scale the heights that he had shown during two previous loan spells.

The Forest captain looked the part yesterday though and performed his duties extremely well.

Following the 2-0 win and a return to form for Colback, supporters took to Twitter to speak about the Reds star.

Here is what supporters were saying about the midfield maestro.
