Nottingham Forest produced a rousing comeback to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-1 on Wednesday night, with England cricket hero Stuart Broad loving the fightback.

Forest were 1-0 down at half time against former boss Mark Warburton as Andre Gray smashed a fine finish past Ethan Horvath.

Steve Cooper needed to see a response from his side after the break and boy did he get one.

Djed Spence smashed a stunning long-range screamer into the net to start the comeback, before Ryan Yates and Brennan Johnson secured a 3-1 win.

Now just one point behind sixth-placed QPR with a game in hand, this win could be absolutely vital for Forest in the playoff hunt.

Forest fans everywhere will be in a jubilant mood today, with Broad joining in the celebrations on Twitter.

One of Forest’s most notable fans is England bowler Broad and he was glued to Forest given that he bizarrely wasn’t called up to play against the West Indies.

Broad predicted at half-time that Joe Lolley would make an impact as a substitute and that came true as he played a key role in Forest’s third goal.

Lolley has only started nine games this season but can still make a big impact with Broad praising him as a difference-maker with his left foot.

Broad also suggested that Spence’s strike was the goal of the season before praising whoever decided to bring Spence to the City Ground in the first place.

Only on loan from Middlesbrough, Spence has been a sensation this season and Broad has loved his link-up play with Brennan Johnson.

There may not be many games left of Spence and Johnson together at Forest, but hopefully they can make it a season to remember by winning promotion to the Premier League.
