Lyle Taylor praised Nottingham Forest fans for their support in a dramatic 2-1 win at Bristol City last night.
Taylor was the hero as Forest made it four wins on the bounce in dramatic style last night, netting two goals in stoppage time.
Taylor was introduced from the bench on 81 minutes, netting in the first minute of stoppage time from the penalty spot.
Taylor picked the ball out from the net, ran straight back to the centre circle, and less than a minute later, he tapped in at the back post to win the game for Forest.
The whole of the playing squad ran towards a jubilant away end, filled with over 1,500 Forest fans bewildered from what they had just seen.

Speaking to the press after the game, Taylor praised the Reds’ away following, calling Forest a “proper, proper football club” because of it.
He said: “Do you know what, it’s those people who make these games and these results worth it. If we had 150 fans, it just wouldn’t have been the same.
“I think I saw a pink flare, you wouldn’t have seen pink smoke going off and that kind of thing because of the number of fans.
“We’ve got an incredible away following. You see the City Ground on Saturday, it was 28,000 odd. It’s a proper, proper football club with a proper following.
“It’s brilliant to see so many of them here.”
Forest fans deserved that for the way they travel in their numbers, regardless of the distance, the day or the weather.
Not many of them would have expected them to win the game in that style, but Forest clearly believed.
The celebration at 90+1 to go and get the ball out of the net and go for a second goal summed up what they are about at the moment.
