Nottingham Forest are currently sat third in the form table of the Championship after a comprehensive 3-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers.

The Reds won the contest thanks to a brace by Glenn Murray and a goal by Anthony Knockaert.

Chris Hughton is slowly but surely starting to get things right at the City Ground and his team will now go into games against Bournemouth and Swansea full of confidence.

Forest were largely impressive throughout the contest yesterday and put the division’s bottom-placed club to the sword.

It was a strong performance and one that helps them towards Championship survival.

Following the game, we looked at the players performances and marked their efforts out of 10.

Brice Samba – 7

Didn’t have a lot to do but kept goal in a neat and tidy fashion.

Cyrus Christie – 7

One of his better games in a Forest shirt, defended well against Eric Onyedinma

Tobias Figueiredo – 8

Another strong performance from the Portuguese performer who looked relatively comfortable.

Joe Worrall – 9

Superb from the big man. Didn’t look fazed and clear his lines well throughout the contest.

Gaetan Bong – 7

Registered an assist for the first goal and looked pretty steady defensively.

Cafu – 6

Not one his better afternoons and he just doesn’t seem quite so effective in a deeper midfield role.

James Garner – 8

His pass which led to Joe Lolley creating the third goal was majestic and the on-loan Manchester United man looks a quality addition.

Anthony Knockaert – 9

Class. He’s taken some stick since arriving at Forest but put in a workmanlike shift against Wycombe.

Filip Krovinovic – 8

Another player who looks a decent addition to the Forest team. The on-loan Benfica man creates space out of nothing and can pick a pass.

Luke Freeman – 6

Just isn’t working for him at the moment. Looked okay for 10 minutes before coming off but is it enough?

Glenn Murray – 9

Made a mockery of those who doubted his signing at 37. He didn’t even need to look at the goal to fire home his first in a red shirt. Class.


Joe Lolley (Freeman, 71) – 7

A decent cameo from the winger who claimed an assist for Knockaert’s goal.

Lyle Taylor (Murray, 76) – 7

Neat and tidy from the striker who was introduced to allow Murray the chance to put his feet up.

Jack Colback (Cafu, 82) – N/A

Introduced for the closing stages and didn’t have a lot to do.
