Nottingham Forest picked up their first win of the 2020/21 season, as they ran out narrow 1-0 winners over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.
Joe Lolley netted the winner with a deflected strike just minutes before the final whistle, as the Reds moved up to 20th in the second-tier standings.
It was the perfect start to life in charge of Forest for Chris Hughton, who will be eager to see his side build on this impressive showing.

One player that caught the eye with a strong performance in the win over Rovers was midfielder Ryan Yates, who will be hoping to continue to be involved in the Forest team.
Yates has come in for criticism from some sections of the Nottingham Forest supporters in recent seasons, but seemingly made a good impression in the win over Rovers.
Plenty of the City Ground faithful took to social media to praise Yates for his performance against Blackburn on Saturday afternoon.

Really pleased for the lad, gets a lots of undeserved stick on here. Must have something about him Hughton's the 4th consecutive manager to rate him

I said I’d give everyone a clean slate after Lamouchi and I’m more than happy to be proven wrong about Yates, he was decent today #nffc

I think he's a better box to box player than what he's classed as a defensive midfielder. Gets far to much stick 4 managers can't be wrong.
