Nottingham Forest defender Max Lowe has taken to his personal Instagram account to hail the performance of the Reds in picking up their first win of the season at Huddersfield Town.
The Reds were aiming to finally get their Championship campaign up and running against an in-form Huddersfield side on Saturday.
Steven Reid was tasked with getting an improved display and a reaction from the players following Chris Hughton’s departure as manager.
That change in the dugout promoted a tactical shift that Nottingham Forest supporters had been hoping to see. The Reds switched to a 3-4-2-1 set-up and that saw Lowe deployed in the left-wing-bak role he had been used to playing with both Sheffield United and Derby County.
The game was Lowe’s third successive start for Forest in the Championship since he made the loan move from Sheffield United.
The defender produced a strong performance in his new left-wing-back role, with the 24-year-old winning three tackles and also four duels.

Lowe has been a very smart signing by Nottingham Forest because they were in need of bringing in an upgrade to their options in the left-back position.
The 24-year-old is a proven Championship quality player and it was perhaps a shock that he did not get more chances at Sheffield United.
In the left-wing-back role that Reid deployed Lowe in on Saturday, the defender seemed to be very comfortable. You can see the him growing from strength to strength in that kind of position for the Reds over the coming weeks.
This is a huge season for Lowe because his move to Sheffield United did not work out as well as he would have been hoping for when he left Derby.
The chance is now there for him to put his career back on track and the early signs have been positive at the City Ground.
It will be difficult for Lowe over the coming weeks as he will have to prove himself once again to a new manager.
However, you would expect whoever takes over from Hughton to recognise the 24-year-old’s talent and try and get the best out of him this term.
