Brennan Johnson continued his fine form for Lincoln City at the weekend, as the Imps continue to impress at the top of League One.
Lincoln moved up to second in League One with a 4-0 win over Northampton Town on Saturday, moving level on points with Portsmouth at the top of the table.
Johnson registered an assist with only a minute on the clock, setting up Anthony Scully to put the Imps 1-0 up at Sixfields.
Johnson then scored twice in quick succession towards the end of the game, securing a massive away win for Appleton’s side.
That’s now four goals in a Lincoln shirt for Johnson, with plenty of Nottingham Forest fans keeping a close eye on his progress out on loan.
As the Reds look to add more creativity going forward, some have been debating whether they should recall Johnson from his loan spell in January.
Here’s what they had to say…
No I’d let him keep playing in a promotion chasing team, bring him back for a relegation scrap and not play will dent his development

He’d offer something else for us but taking him away from Lincoln might not be the best thing for his career

Only if you realistically hope him to play 50% of the games. More important he plays and learns atm imho.

Recall him if he plays a part , not to sit on the bench game time more important.

All depends on the situation with Knockaert and/or Freeman?

Not a chance. He’s doing well there leave him there for a full season to let him develop. Definitely a proper player in there though

If we will play him yes don't recall him and leave him on bench like did walker

Yes, he's got what we need: pace, can run with the ball, finishes well and can play the #10 role. Looked like he could play but was a but lost before. The loan has worked out really well.

Only if he’s going to play some games…
