Nottingham Forest were on the wrong end of a spirited comeback by Crewe, with the League One outfit scoring twice in the last 15 minutes to claim a 2-2 draw.

Brennan Johnson had fired the Reds into the lead with two well-taken goals either side of the half-time interval.

It was the youngster who earned a lot of the plaudits, although another player also caught the eye.

Jack Colback barely featured under Chris Hughton for Forest last season. He struggled having spent the year previous out injured and didn’t really get a run of games.

The midfielder has featured prominently during the pre-season campaign though and looks set for a resurgence during 2021/22.

Colback was once again in action at Crewe and his performance drew some praise from the club’s supporters.


In total, Colback has made 72 appearances for Forest, scoring four goals and claiming two assists. It’s his tenacity in the midfield engine room that earns him the most praise, however.

Following yesterday’s performance, some supporters took to Twitter to mention Colback in a positive sense.

We had a look at what was being said as the Forest midfielder once again stole the show with a fine performance.
