Nottingham Forest midfielder James Garner was in fine form as the Reds defeated Coventry on Wednesday night.

He scored the team’s second goal as they roared into the play-off places with a pretty comfortable win.

Some footage of a magic moment will have naturally caught the eye; with Manchester United fans likely to be particularly impressed.

Garner has grown during the current campaign. He did start relatively slow during his second City Ground spell but right now the England under-21 man is on fire.

The player netted his fourth goal of the campaign against Coventry and he will hope for a few more before the season is out.

Next season, will be interesting. Some reports have claimed that he will earn a chance with the Red Devils but others claim interest from other clubs in signing him permanently.

Forest would dearly love to keep Garner. The hopes of doing that will likely depend on whether or not the Reds can get themselves into the Premier League.

If they don’t, Cooper will need to prepare contingency plans ready for when he heads back in the summer.

Garner has the attributes to go right to the very top and Forest fans will break their hearts when he does depart.

What did Forest man Garner do that should excite United fans?

On Wednesday night there was a real moment of magic by Garner that should leave United fans purring.

He produced a stunning half volley down the pitch to Brennan Johnson that left the City Ground faithful mesmerised.

It showcased just how much talent Garner has and also suggested how confident he is right now.

United have a proud history of utilising their own academy and plenty are hopeful that Garner will earn a chance.

This pass is of course just one moment of magic but the Red Devils fan base should be seriously excited about what Garner can do at Old Trafford next season.
