Nottingham Forest were hugely impressive as they beat Queens Park Rangers 3-1 this afternoon, with Alex Mighten once again showing why he is so highly rated.
Many connected to the Reds have known about the 18-year-old for some time, and whilst he was in and around the first-team last season, the current campaign has been a real breakthrough one for the winger.
And, he continued his fine form against the R’s, scoring from close range to give Chris Hughton’s side the lead.
Whilst it was a relatively straightforward finish, Mighten showed good anticipation and movement to get in front of his marker to get the goal.
Were each of these 20 former Nottingham Forest players left or right footed?
As well as that, the teenager was a constant threat throughout, with his pace and direct style causing the visitors real problems in what was a complete Forest performance.
Therefore, it was no surprise to see Mighten receive a lot of praise following the win, and here we look at some of the comments from Twitter…
Mighten will probably be the next one sold after Worrall. #nffc 😢

Great to see Alex Mighten scoring again for #NFFC, taking his opportunity in the first-team well.

Mighten doesnt always deilver but he does provide a threat , a natural pacey winger that wants to attack definitely changes the approach#NFFC
