Forest desperately needed the victory and Everton drawing earlier in the day clearly gave the Reds some confidence.

It proved a memorable day at the City Ground with the celebrations going on long after the final whistle had been blown.

Players hugged, fans exchanged high fives and the stands were bouncing as Freed from Desire belted out.

For Lodi and Worrall things just got a little bit too overwhelming.

The Reds captain broke down into tears on the City Ground turf after a performance that showcased his quality.

Worrall is another player who has had his critics this term but here he was absolutely brilliant.

Lodi too was spotted crying at the end of the game. The Sky Sports cameras picked the Brazilian up as he sobbed and waved at the supporters.

Forest would be wise to try and sign the left-back permanently. He’s grown into his role at the City Ground and is an important player.

At times this season, it’s been mentioned that not enough of the Forest squad care.

Based on what Lodi and Worrall did at full-time yesterday, it seems clear that they do.
