Former Nottingham Forest defender Keith Foy has made an astonishing claim about Jack Colback after the win against West Brom. The Reds ran out 4-0 winners and the left-back scored an outrageous goal from close to the corner flag.

It was Colback’s third goal of the season for Forest. His other two, against Preston and QPR, were far less emphatic and his latest strike helped the Reds on their way to a brilliant 4-0 win in the hunt for a play-off place.

Forest were magnificent against the Baggies. Despite what Neil Warnock would have you believe in the Sky studio, West Brom were simply blown away and Darnell Furlong’s miserable night saw him see red inside the first half.

Steve Cooper’s team have now won five of their last six games in the Championship. Forest are on fire when they get going and it’s unlikely that any team will want to meet the Reds in the play-offs should they make it.

Colback has been a fantastic player for Forest during 2021/22. He has played as a central midfielder and also as a left-back, with the 32-year-old doing a decent job in the absence of Max Lowe who is currently injured.

What has Foy said about Forest star Colback?

The former academy graduate made 42 appearances for the Reds. He scored twice for the club but none of his goals quite scaled the heights of Colback’s unbelievable strike against the Baggies on Monday night.

He believes the goal is class though. Shortly after the game on Easter Monday, the former Forest man took to Twitter; claiming that Colback’s strike might just be the best goal that he’s ever seen!

Colback will hope to continue shining for Forest. At 32, he knows he won’t have too long left and more goals of this ilk before he finishes certainly wouldn’t go amiss.

The defender is instrumental to Cooper’s team. If the Reds harbour any ambition of reaching the Premier League, they must hope the likes of Colback can stay fit for the remainder of the campaign.
