Nottingham Forest are on a roll and yesterday they did something that not even Liverpool and Manchester City have managed this season.

The Reds beat Swansea City 5-1 and despite a frustrating first half, Forest stuck to their guns and continued the pressure on Bournemouth.

Steve Cooper has enjoyed both of his games against his former club this season. Forest won 4-1 at the Liberty Stadium earlier in the season and yesterday his team were even more emphatic.

Forest secured the victory thanks to a Cyrus Christie own goal, a Sam Surridge hat-trick and a goal from substitute Alex Mighten.

It was a brilliant second half from the Reds and now they’ve done something that no other team in England has done this season.

Forest had a staggering 27 shots yesterday with 17 of those on target with goalkeeper Andy Fisher extremely busy between the posts.

City and Liverpool have both had games this season where they have registered 15 shots on targets but not 17.

This is a clear sign of what Cooper is trying to achieve with his Forest squad and fans are loving the style of play.

Forest must continue attacking approach under Cooper

The Reds are on the march and they’ve timed their run up the Championship to absolute perfection.

Forest need to keep going all guns blazing and if they create chances, goals will be scored against teams at this level.

Yesterday, the Reds could have scored more. Fisher made five quality saves, whilst Forest were also wasteful on other occasions.

Liverpool and Manchester City are clearly the cream of the crop in this country.

Forest are clearly doing something right as well, however, and they are justifying the vast praise that is going in their direction at the moment.
