Lincoln City roared back to the top of League One with a win over Gillingham and Brennan Johnson was a name on everyone’s lips.

The Nottingham Forest youngster created an assist and won his team a penalty as they cranked up the pressure on Hull City.

Johnson has been on loan at the LNER Stadium since the start of the season and is relishing the regular action.

He has now scored seven goals and registered eight assists for his temporary team who are chasing promotion to the Championship.

Johnson looks set for stardom.

He has been unleashed in a number of roles by Michael Appleton and is thriving by playing regularly.

Johnson has featured on both flanks, through the middle as a No.10 and even as a striker.

 

The 19-year-old is clearly enjoying his football and that can only bode well for Forest ahead of next season.

With last night’s game live on Sky Sports, it gave Forest fans the chance to check out their academy graduate.

Although he’s played eight times for the Reds, his outings have largely come as a substitute.

It’s fair to say that Forest supporters enjoyed his performance last night and took to Twitter to rave about him.

Here is what Forest fans were saying about their talented youngster.
