Nottingham Forest recorded their first win of the season on Saturday afternoon, defeating Blackburn Rovers by a goal to nil at Ewood Park.
Forest went into the fixture having lost their first four league games in the Championship, scoring only one goal in each of those games.
That dismal start to the season ultimately led to Sabri Lamouchi losing his job, but his successor, Chris Hughton, got his tenure of to a perfect start on Saturday afternoon.
Quiz: Do Nottingham Forest and Derby County have these 10 things in common?
Forest came up against a Blackburn side who had scored 11 goals in their first four games, but the Reds defended exceptionally well and were rewarded in stoppage-time.
Joe Lolley’s deflected effort wrong-footed Thomas Kaminski and nestled into the bottom corner, securing a vital win for Forest and the first of the Hughton era.
One player who stood out once again for Forest was Nicholas Ioannou, who made only his second appearance for the club since arriving from APOEL Nicosia last month.
The left-back won a host of aerial battles, and also gave Forest plenty of threat down the left-hand sides with his wicked deliveries into the box.
The Cypriot is looking like an astute signing for the Reds, and here, we take a look at fans’ reactions to his performance…
Ioannou quality, I like Riberio but this boy is another level. Great win today.
Chrissy Hughton's 🔴⚪ army!!#NFFC

McKenna and Ioannou is the best left side to a defence we've had in years. Really good business #NFFC

Nicholas Ioannou was my MOTM.

Good job we sold Cash. Would never be used under Hughton. Full backs just don't support the front men. Ioannou has hardly touched it in their half #nffc

Nicolas Ioannou has been very impressive again today for #NFFC

I’m massively sold on Ioannou. He’s the catalyst of nearly every chance we create #nffc
