After defeating arch rivals Derby County by a goal to nil on Monday night, Nottingham Forest’s play-off push is back on track in the Sky Bet Championship.
In front of a boisterous City Ground crowd, the Reds dominated the Rams throughout, as Yohan Benalouane’s early strike ultimately proved decisive for the Reds in what was a massive win for Martin O’Neill’s men.
It’s clear to see how much the win meant for the Forest fans, the atmosphere at the City Ground was electric on Monday night, but it wasn’t just supporters who were seen celebrating the win…
After the game, former Nottingham Forest man Radoslaw Majewski was pictured celebrating Forest’s win over their bitter rivals in one of his old shirts, and was clearly delighted after such a big win for his old club.
For anyone who doesn’t follow Radi Majewski on instagram, he’s been sat in his old forest kit with his name on the back watching a live stream on his iPad. If that isn’t worthy of his own statue outside the main stand then I don’t know what is #nffc pic.twitter.com/xQtVdgCp0n

The 32-year old, who now plies his trade in his home country for Pogon Szczecin, is no stranger to the East Midlands derby, having featured over 160 times for Forest during a six-year stay at the City Ground.
The midfielder was a very popular figure at the City Ground, and starred in Forest’s famous 5-2 win over Derby back in 2010, and this latest post is likely to receive even more love from the Reds faithful.
Monday night’s result leaves Forest sitting three points off the play-off places, after going unbeaten in their last four league games.
This is fantastic – it’s good to see so many former players understand just what the East Midlands derby means to Nottingham Forest fans.
Majewski was a fantastic player for Forest, and it’s clear that he still loves the club despite leaving almost four years ago.
It was a fantastic result for the Reds – they dominated throughout and thoroughly deserved the three points, that gets them back on track in the Championship.
