Guy Moussi has told the Garibaldi Red podcast that Greg Cunningham raved about Nottingham Forest after Saturday’s win for the Reds at the City Ground.

The former Forest loanee came on as a second-half substitute and was powerless to prevent Steve Cooper’s team from running out 3-0 winners.

A brace by Lewis Grabban and a goal from Jack Colback sealed the win and helped Forest go into the international break on a high.

Moussi played alongside Cunningham during his time at the City Ground. The Preston man arrived on a short-term deal from Manchester City and largely did okay.

The Frenchman claimed he sought out his teammate at the end of the contest and he had some kind words about a new-look Forest team.

He told the Garibaldi Red podcast: “I was really impressed with Forest and really pleased.

“They played on the front foot with a lot of attacking play and a lot of pressing. At the end of the game, I went to speak with Greg Cunningham, who was playing for Preston and he used to play for us.

“He had the same feeling. He said the way we pressed them, they couldn’t deal with it. It was really enjoyable.”

Statement: Moussi is right and teams are starting to take Forest seriously

All too often under Chris Hughton, Forest simply rolled over and had their bellies tickled. Their strength when it came to defending 1-0 leads was akin to a newborn puppy desperate to receive fuss from his new human!

Now though, the Reds are made of sterner tough. Cooper has really instilled a confidence and a belief that hasn’t been evident at the City Ground for a few years.

No longer will Forest worry about the opposition. As a result, under Cooper, it seems as though the Reds will take every single game to their opponents.

The style of football has proved very easy on the eye so far. Long may Forest continue scaring Championship teams into submission; particularly at the City Ground!
