‘Something special’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans react to performance of ace in Preston loss



A number of Nottingham Forest supporters have been hailing the performance of James Garner despite the Reds signing off the season in frustrating fashion with a 2-1 defeat at home to Preston.

Garner has been a revelation at Forest in the second half of the campaign and the Reds are going to face a lot of competition to try and bring him back to the City Ground for next season. The midfielder has played a crucial role in helping Chris Hughton’s side get over the line towards safety in what has been a thoroughly underwhelming campaign for them.

Against Preston, Garner was once again a rare bright spark for the Reds with him firing Forest into the lead with a memorable strike that summed up the quality he has brought to the side in the middle of the park since his arrival. Without his impact on the side, they might well have been in more trouble in the latter part of the campaign than they have been.

The midfielder was calmness personified in possession and always helped to try and get the Reds going. Garner managed to maintain an impressive 93% passing accuracy and also managed to make three key passes on top of the goal that he scored (Sofascore). It was a performance that shows how vital he would be for them if they were able to secure his signature again in the summer.

Many Forest fans were quick to hail his performance and some were hopeful that the Reds might be able to try and get him back from Manchester United this summer.
