Nottingham Forest are up to 5th in the Sky Bet Championship after a comfortable 2-0 win over Ipswich Town on Saturday afternoon.
The Reds went into the fixture on the back of an unbeaten run lasting seven league games, and a betting favourite on this website, after an enthralling 5-5 draw at Aston Villa in midweek.
Aitor Karanka’s men were looking to close the gap between the playoff places and 7th position, and got off to the perfect start as Lewis Grabban netted Forest’s opener – the 30-year old then went onto score his and Forest’s second goal which ultimately set the tone for the rest of the match.
That is now 14 goals in the league for Grabban this season, and he is now the Championship’s top goalscorer ahead of Brentford’s Neal Maupay – an achievement that Forest were quick to share on Twitter.

Grabban is the forward that Forest have been craving ever since the departure of Britt Assombalonga to Middlesbrough, and with 15 goals in his last 15 games in all competitions, the former Aston Villa forward is looking like outstanding business after Forest rolled the dice, much like you can here, in signing him from Bournemouth in the summer for a fee of around £6million.
Here, we take a look at Forest fans’ reactions to this latest tweet…
Up the football league we go????⚪️

Patience is a virtue. Its only three months since some fans weren't happy with him.

We've needed a striker like @grabbs22 for as long as I can remember. Britt was good but was injured too much!
