Nottingham Forest defender Max Lowe has made no secret of the fact that he celebrated when Ryan Yates equalised against his parent club Sheffield United.

The Reds scored in the 95th minute at Bramall Lane last week with Yates nodding home a James Garner corner.

It ensured Forest got themselves a massive point against a rival for a top-six place and kept themselves in the hunt.

Lowe is on loan at the City Ground from the Blades and he’s been a largely integral figure in Steve Cooper’s team.

On Saturday, the youngster hobbled out of the action and it’ll be hoped that his groin problem isn’t too serious.

Lowe has been discussing his time at Forest and what he did after Yates’ goal against Sheffield United might come as a surprise.

He told The Athletic: “Before the United game, I just wanted to be a part of it.

“I went to the game…and when Yatesy scored, I couldn’t help but celebrate. I wanted us to get the three points. That is me being honest.

“Sheffield United are a team we will be competing with for a play-off place. I am a Forest player and I’m not taking that for granted. Every time I put the shirt on, I’m proud.”

Lowe comments will go down a storm with Forest fan base

Sheffield United and Forest have a long-standing history with each other. As a result, hearing a Blades-owned player speak about the Reds with such passion will go down well.

Forest fans have warmed to Lowe. He has been a brilliant addition to the ranks and looks tailor-made for Cooper’s system.

Of all the loan signings Forest have made during this season, Lowe is the one that looks extremely likely to be made permanent.

At 24, the left-back is at a nice age to continue developing and he could be signed by Forest ahead of his best years.

In the short term, Forest will hope that Lowe’s injury isn’t serious and that he can be back helping the team as soon as possible.
