Matty Cash has sent a passionate message to Nottingham Forest fans on social media following the Reds’ 3-2 win over Blackburn Rovers yesterday.
Forest moved up to fourth in the Sky Bet Championship table with a hard-fought victory at the City Ground, thanks to a goal from Joe Lolley and two from Lewis Grabban.
Lolley opened the scoring for the Reds in the 22nd minute and was then brought down for a penalty moments later, which allowed Grabban to make it 2-0.
Blackburn pulled one back before half-time with superb finish from Stewart Downing, but Grabban restored Forest’s two-goal advantage on 55 minutes with his 14th goal of the season – a fine header from Sammy Ameobi’s cross.
Joe Worrall diverted Elliott Bennett’s cross into his own net to set up a nervy finale, but Forest held on for their third successive victory, it was also the second time this season that they were able to score more than one goal in a league game at home.
Following the five-goal thriller at the City Ground, Cash took to social media to reflect on the result and sent a message to Forest fans via his personal Instagram account.

It was a very good performance from Nottingham Forest yesterday and the result should give the players a huge boost going into their next few matches.
A lot has been said about how Forest need to improve their home form, so back-to-back wins at the City Ground should give them more confidence and belief.
There’s still a long way to go this season, but Forest have now won their last three matches and are in a strong position in the table. The players must now make sure that they capitalise on this momentum and continue to pick up points.
