Nottingham Forest won for the second time this week as Chris Hughton’s men defeated Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 at the City Ground.

Lyle Taylor scored a brace to take his tally for the season to four and send the Reds into the international break in high spirits.

Forest were made to work for parts of the second half by the Chairboys who were led by assistant manager Richard Dobson on the day.

Following the game, we looked at Forest’s three best players from yesterday afternoon.

Lyle Taylor

The goalscoring was inspired during the contest and will perhaps be disappointed he didn’t walk off with the match ball.

Taylor has looked lively in recent games and is now edging towards full fitness after missing some of last season through injury.

The 30-year-old has four goals to his name and highlighted his versatility during this game.

His first was a delicate header at the back post, whilst his second highlighted his ability to put defenders on the back foot.

Taylor looks like being a big player for Forest this season.

Cyrus Christie

The right-back claimed a superb assist for Taylor’s first goal with a teasing ball to the back post.


Christie has come in for criticism since arriving at the club and last week he held his hands up for some poor defending in the defeat to Middlesbrough.

He has bounced back though and done a decent job in the two home games this week.

Christie is on loan from Fulham and yesterday was probably his best performance in a Forest shirt.

The challenge now is produce the consistency to do it on a weekly basis.

Miguel Angel Guerrero

The Spaniard produced his best display since making the summer move from Olympiacos.

Occasionally foreign signings get the raw end of the deal among supporters but it’s fair to say Guerrero can play.

His link-up play with Taylor was very decent and he could become a very shrewd addition for the Reds.

Guerrero was cautioned early on but didn’t let that impact his performance.

The 30-year-old works hard, shows determination and on another day might have added a goal for his efforts.
