Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has praised three Nottingham Forest players following their 4-3 win over Southampton.

A brace from Taiwo Awoniyi and goals from Morgan Gibbs-White and Danilo has given Forest lift off.

The battle for survival just got really interesting and Forest now sit outside the relegation zone.

Premier League survival is now in their own hands, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Crystal Palace left to play.

Forest were made to sweat by a Southampton side who are perilously close to having the ‘R’ for relegated next to their name.

Last night, Carragher was on duty for Monday Night Football and he raved about the performances of three players.

Danilo, Brennan Johnson and Morgan Gibbs-White were the two players picked out by Carragher for praise on Twitter.

He said: “What an impact from Danilo of late for Forest. Johnson and Gibbs-White have had a huge impact all season.”

Forest have to really push on now in their quest to survive relegation this season.

The three games they have left are challenging but ultimately, the other teams have tough fixtures to come as well as the Reds.

Danilo in particular has been outstanding of late, with the player waiting patiently following his arrival from Palmeiras.

His goal last night was wonderful and featured good work from both Johnson and Gibbs-White.

Carragher praised three Forest stars

In fairness, this win was about more than just the three players he mentioned.

Felipe was class, Orel Mangala was magnificent and Renan Lodi worked tirelessly hard.

Forest found a way to win and for that, they do deserve some praise.

The Reds will hope to shore up defensively in the final three games and if they do that, who knows where they could finish.

The three picked out for praise by Carragher are clearly going to be massively important for Forest.

Hopefully the Reds can stay up this season and then keep hold of the trio for many years to come.
