Dean Henderson has reacted on Instagram after Nottingham Forest defeated Brighton 3-1 at the City Ground.

Goals from Danilo, Morgan Gibbs-White and a Pascal Gross own goal ensured a huge win for the Reds.

Forest showed that they’re up for the fight in their battle against relegation with a dogged performance.

Brighton are in decent form and have ambitions of qualifying for Europe but this was a blow to those aspirations.

Forest have been without Henderson since January when he picked up a thigh injury against Leicester.

The club signed Keylor Navas on loan in January and he’s been deputising ever since.

Despite being unable to play, Henderson has been a regular at matches and is now cheering the team from the stands.

The 26-year-old was in fine form before injury struck and if Forest stay up, they’d love to sign him permanently.

Henderson’s days at Manchester United look numbered but Tottenham also want a summer deal.

Forest are fortunate to have two excellent loanee goalkeepers, with Wayne Hennessey also capable at this level.

Henderson has suffered a little setback in his rehabilitation but he will hope to get back on the pitch as soon as possible.

The goalkeeper was once again in attendance last night as the Reds claimed a huge three points.

After the game, he took to Instagram to post a seven-word message to his teammates.

He posted on his story: “Huge result, unreal atmosphere. Well done boys!”

Despite some really poor form prior to last night, it does appear that there is a real togetherness at the club.

The injured players are buying into the concept of cheering the players on and hopefully, a few more wins can be claimed.

Forest are edging closer to safety but with the battle intensifying, the Reds can now breathe easier for a few more days.
