Nottingham Forest star James Garner has slowly but surely been getting back to his very best over the last month.

On Saturday, he was brilliant as the Reds defeated Hull City 2-1 at the City Ground.

That has led to some shout from the rooftops that the Manchester United loanee is back in business and edging closer to his best.

Garner arrived on loan at the City Ground back in August, having spent the second half of last season at the club.

He made 20 appearances and scored four goals during 2020/21 and some supporters expected him to instantly be back in the groove.

Things haven’t quite transpired like that and in front of supporters, it has taken Garner some time to get up to speed.

Now, he’s in full flight and some footage that has emerged from Saturday has seen the fan base rave about him.

 

Garner made his 19th appearance for the Reds at the weekend and so far he’s scored one goal and registered one assist.

There is more to come from him in that sense but he showcases on Saturday some superb attributes to the City Ground faithful.

What have Forest fans said about Garner?

It’s reasonable to suggest that they’re pretty happy with his form of later.

The latest footage featuring the Manchester United man shows most of his touches from Saturday, including passes, tackles and interceptions.

He was largely impressive throughout the 90 minutes at the weekend and it was arguably his best performance of the campaign.

Garner will now strive to keep up that level of performance for the foreseeable. If he does, he could help Forest claim a top-six finish come to the end of the season.

Here is what the Forest fan base have been saying after footage emerged of his brilliance at the weekend.
