Nottingham Forest beat West Brom 4-0 at the City Ground to take a giant leap towards the Championship play-off places.
The Reds are now fifth and have a five-point gap on Millwall with two games in hand on the contenders to take their place.
Forest won this game in style. First-half goals from Brennan Johnson, Ryan Yates and Jack Colback ensured a routine first 45 minutes, with Sam Surridge scoring in second-half injury time.
Steve Cooper’s men were rampant and after the game, we marked the players out of 10 for their efforts.
Brice Samba – 8
Rarely tested throughout the contest but did show some strong handling during the clash.
Joe Worrall – 8
Solid personified and coped very well with the ball at his feet during the contest.
Tobias Figueiredo – 8
Once again showed why he’s earned so many rave reviews since returning to the team.
Scott McKenna – 8
Coped exceptionally well with the aerial threat of Andy Carroll and gets better with each passing game.
Djed Spence – 8
Linked up well with Brennan Johnson but did more like his usual self.
Ryan Yates – 9
Superb. Another terrific showing from Yates who scored his ninth goal of the campaign.
James Garner – 9
Another outstanding showing from the Manchester United man who links up really well with Yates.
Jack Colback – 10
Deserves a maximum for merely scoring one of the best goals the City Ground has seen in recent times. Star Man!
Brennan Johnson – 8
Stepped up to take the penalty well and tucked it away with aplomb. Looked lively throughout.
Philip Zinckernagel – 9
Has come in for some criticism in recent weeks but Forest do look more balanced when he plays. Outstanding against the Albion.
Sam Surridge – 8
It was a case of next man up with Keinan Davis ruled out and he took his goal really well. Looks like a very shrewd signing.
Steve Cook – 7
Nice to see the experienced professional return from a short injury absence.
Richie Laryea – N/A
Made his debut for the club but had very little time to make an impact.
Cafu – N/A
Came on with Laryea and produced some near little flicks during his brief cameo.
