A team unit
Forest enjoyed a lot of success last season before there fall from grace with Assombalonga being in excellent form before his injury against Bournemouth.
After he was injured Forest fell way from the top as they were reliant on his goals and only the play of Michail Antonio on the wing, brightened up the Forest fans.
His excellent pace and physicality impressed Forest fans with his ability to cut in from the wing and score, and they became reliant on him at the end of last season and the beginning of this one.
So there were fears they could be in trouble when he was sold to West Ham but Forest have solidified without him and play better football as a team, which Freedman has garnered praise for.
From the industry of Mills in defence to the young talent of Osborn in midfield, there is a feel that the Forest team is an actual unit now.
