Lewis Grabban at Nottingham Forest: His one best moment and one worst moment at the Reds so far

Published

on

Lewis Grabban looks to have got his mojo back in a Nottingham Forest shirt after a recent revival under Steve Cooper.

The Reds have yielded seven points from their first three games under Cooper, with the 33-year-old playing a starring role.

Grabban has scored four goals in his last six games, scoring in emphatic away wins over Barnsley and Birmingham City.

Last season, Grabban came in for criticism as Forest scored only 37 goals in 46 Championship games – he only scored six of those.

Where did Nottingham Forest finish in the Championship in 2008/09?

But before last season, Grabban was firing on all cylinders for the Reds, scoring 36 goals across his first two seasons on Trentside.

Grabban has scored 47 goals in 126 matches for Forest, and on the whole, he has proven to be an excellent signing since arriving from Bournemouth in 2018.

Here, we take a look at Grabban’s one best moment and one worst moment since joining Nottingham Forest over three years ago…

Best moment – Millwall (A), 2019/20

It is hard to pick out a particular game which Grabban really stood out in, as when he has been at his best, he has chipped in with several goals on a regular basis.

But perhaps one of Grabban’s best performances in a Forest shirt came under Sabri Lamouchi in the 2019/20 campaign, in a 2-2 draw at Millwall.

In December 2019, Forest found themselves a goal down at The Den thanks to Shaun Williams’ early strike, with Grabban starting on the bench.

On 62 minutes, he replaced Rafa Mir for the final half-hour, and a minute later, he headed in from close-range with his first touch.

On 88 minutes, Grabban had turned the game on its head, scoring what looked to be a winning goal as he converted Sammy Ameobi’s low cross.

Aiden O’Brien ended up netting a late equaliser for Millwall – but two goals in 25 minutes from Grabban gave the Reds hope from nowhere, and it was a cameo which very much sums him up.

Worst moment – Stoke (A), 2020/21

Again, it is hard to single out a particular worst moment from Grabban’s time at the City Ground – aside from last season, he has been ever reliable and has rarely let his side down.

During a tough run last season, Forest travelled to Stoke in late December, having won only one of their previous 10 games.

After only 18 minutes, a corner was delivered to the near post by Jordan Thompson, with Grabban ducking and choosing not to clear the cross. The corner went straight in, with Grabban left with egg on his face.

Forest did recover and earned a point when James Chester scored an own goal in the second half, but it was a pretty embarrassing moment for the striker.
