Max Lowe has claimed that the Nottingham Forest supporters are the best he has played in front of during his career. That will represent a bitter blow to fans of Derby County and Sheffield United who he’s turned out for previously.
Lowe signed for Forest shortly before the transfer deadline in August. He was a Chris Hughton signing but he’s really started to shine under Steve Cooper.
Currently, the player on loan from the Blades is out injured. He suffered a recurrence of the groin injury that kept him out earlier in the campaign against Reading a fortnight ago.
Lowe has made 22 appearances for the Reds this season. He has netted one goal and registered four assists during the 2021/22 season and has been largely impressive.
Whilst he recovers from his injury, he’s been discussing turning out for the Reds fan base who have followed their team in droves this season.
He told Nottinghamshire Live: “I’m not going to lie, even when we play away, sometimes it feels like a home game because the fans come in numbers.
“In the huddle before kick-off, you can’t even hear Wozza speaking, which says a lot.
“I’ve been at four teams now and they are the best home fans I’ve played in front of, easily. It’s definitely a standout.”
Forest should try and sign Lowe permanently
Of all the loan players currently on Forest’s books, perhaps Lowe is the most realistic permanent signing of the lot. He is down the pecking order at Bramall Lane and they’ll perhaps look to shift him on.
It seems crystal clear that Lowe would relish the move. The fans have taken to him and these comments clearly imply that he likes playing for the club.
Forest have struggled to source a long-term left-back in recent years. At 24, Lowe is at a nice age to hold down the position for several years to come.
As a result, the Reds would be wise to act and let Lowe make the City Ground a permanent home next season.
