Nottingham Forest defender Jayden Richardson is making waves across the River Trent at Notts County.

He scored his first goal for the Magpies on Sunday as they thrashed Wrexham 3-1 at Meadow Lane.

With the situation surrounding Djed Spence previously unclear, some fans were hopeful that the 22-year-old might be recalled.

The versatile full-back took his goal really well for the Magpies at the weekend and it gave Notts an important victory.

Forest’s rivals are sixth in the National League and have five points less than leaders Chesterfield who have played the same number of games.

Richardson have proved something of a coup for the Magpies. He has added some balance to their team and looks a class above the National League.

The Forest academy graduate has two substitute appearances in the Championship to his name this season.

He’s also been a regular for the under-23s and looks set for a really bright future.

With Forest not in action over the weekend, some supporters took the chance to run the rule over Richardson.

It’s fair to say they weren’t disappointed.

With that in mind, loaning Richardson to Notts is a strong move by Forest in the eyes of many and they’re happy to see him doing well.

He’s certainly started life well at Meadow Lane and Forest fans are hopeful that he can continue kicking on with Ian Burchnall’s team.

Fans of both clubs have been reacting and it’s fair to say Richardson is doing bits at Notts County.
