Nottingham Forest have been in fine form and after beating Coventry last night, boss Mark Robins has name-checked five Reds stars who possess real quality.

Forest secured a vital three points thanks to goals from Brennan Johnson and James Garner; making it four victories on the spin in the Championship.

The Reds need to stay on top of the game and given the nature of the league they can still ill-afford any slip-ups.

Steve Cooper was happy with all three points last night but he will know that his team can play a lot better than they did last night.

At this stage of the campaign, points mean prizes typically and Forest are on a fantastic run of form at the moment.

After last night’s game, Robins showcased his class by lauding Forest and the outstanding quality within their squad.

He name-checked five players who highlighted the gulf in class between the two teams.

The Coventry manager told Nottinghamshire Live: “Djed Spence has been getting the plaudits and Brennan Johnson is an outstanding talent.

“Keinan Davis is powerful. They had Johnson up there with Davis; then they brought on Sam Surridge and Lewis Grabban. That’s the difference.”

Robins is right, Forest have quality all over the park

The Reds are playing some brilliant football and it was nice for an opposition manager to hold no grudges over losing to a better team.

Coventry didn’t play bad but in football, if you don’t take your chances then it’s impossible to win a game of football.

Forest have quality all over the pitch and for the first time in many years, there doesn’t really appear to be a weak link.

The Reds have timed their run towards the play-offs to perfection and on current form, they will be lots of people’s pick to claim promotion.

Forest now have the challenge of continuing their fine form and cementing a place in the top six.
