Nottingham Forest beat QPR 3-1 at the City Ground on Wednesday night to flex their promotion credentials.

Forest trailed at the break after Andre Gray fired a low shot beyond Ethan Horvath with half-time looming.

Second-half goals from Djed Spence, Ryan Yates and Brennan Johnson saw the Forest fans go home happy, however.

Steve Cooper’s men were truly sensational in the second half and after the performance, we marked the players out of 10 for their performances.

Ethan Horvath – 7

Could have maybe done better for the goal but was largely impressive otherwise.

Joe Worrall – 7

Did well and the academy graduate is a sound asset for the Reds. It’s easy to see why Premier League clubs are keen.

Tobias Figueiredo – 7

Unfortunate to slip which allowed Andre Gray to open the scoring but otherwise he played really well on his return to the side.

Scott McKenna – 8

Once again colossal in the air. Forest fans will hope his injury isn’t too bad as he was forced off in the second half.

Djed Spence – 9

Wow! What a performance. We’re running out of superlatives to describe the Forest right-sided wing-back.

Ryan Yates – 8

Scored for the fourth game running. He’s now proving his critics wrong and long may it continue.

James Garner – 8

Another sound performance from Garner. Manchester United will be keen to get him back next season based on this performance.

Jack Colback – 9

Outstanding performance from the makeshift left wing-back. This was a display that just showed why he’s so important to Steve Cooper.

Brennan Johnson – 8

Took his goal well but otherwise, his decision making left a lot to be desired. Boy does he link up well with Spence, however.

Philip Zinckernagel – 7

Struggled in the first half but did grow into the game. Was withdrawn in the second half.

Keinan Davis – 7

Never really got going and was eventually replaced by Sam Surridge. Davis never stops trying but QPR stifled the threat he possesses.
