‘Give that boy a chance’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans react to 31-year-old’s display vs Northampton

Nottingham Forest made it three wins from three in pre-season last night, defeating Northampton Town 2-0 at Sixfields.

A strong Forest side took to the field for the first half, including the likes of Joe Worrall, Scott McKenna and Lewis Grabban, but it took until the second half for the Reds to really get into their groove.

Cafu doubled Forest’s lead soon after, rifling a powerful low effort into the bottom corner from 20 yards after receiving the ball from Alex Mighten.

Taylor is a player who has endured a tough time on Trentside since arriving from Charlton Athletic last summer.

The striker was their third-choice centre-forward by the time last season finished, and he has been strongly linked with a move away from the City Ground.

But Taylor, who has been on international duty with Montserrat, will hope that last night’s goal can prove to be a springboard and help push him back into contention.

Here, we take a look at what Forest fans have had to say about him…
