Ben Osborn reacts to memorable Nottingham Forest throwback post

Nottingham Forest have took time to reflect on one of their greatest ever goals, as the break from EFL action continues.

Lewis McGugan scored 44 goals in 230 appearances for Forest during a seven-year stay at the City Ground, but one of those strikes certainly stands out above the rest.

The midfielder found the net from an incredible free kick in October 2010, as Forest continued to mount a play-off push under Billy Davies.

On the stroke of half-time, McGugan shot a powerful freekick into the net and almost broke it in half, doubling their lead after an early strike from David McGoldrick.

Today, the club have posted a throwback video of the freekick, with former Forest man Ben Osborn offering his own reflection of the goal.

The boyhood Forest fan was a ballboy on that day, and tweeted saying that he was right behind the goal as the ball flew into the net.

Osborn left the City Ground in the summer to join Premier League side Sheffield United, and has since made 12 appearances in all competitions for Chris Wilder’s Blades.

The Verdict

McGugan’s strike is one of the most memorable to have been scored on Trentside, and fans who were there that day will never forget it.

He hits the ball with so much power and you would be forgiven for thinking that it would fly straight into the stands, but it dipped at the perfect time.

Osborn is a Forest fan and he will be proud to have witnessed such a fantastic goal.
