Lyle Taylor has enjoyed a fruitful week away on international duty for Montserrat.
The striker – who celebrated his 31st birthday yesterday – has endured a frustrating campaign since arriving at Forest on a free transfer in the summer.
Taylor may be Forest’s leading goalscorer with five goals to his name in all competitions, but he is behind Lewis Grabban and Glenn Murray in the pecking order.
The ultimate Nottingham Forest shirt sponsor quiz: Can you get 18/18?
Taylor has been influential for Montserrat as they look to impress in the World Cup qualifiers, netting a brace in a 2-2 draw with Antigua and Barbuda last week.
On Wednesday, he netted his third goal in two games, scoring a late equaliser in a draw with El Salvador before celebrating his birthday the day after.
Taylor will be hoping that his form on international duty can help him break into the first-team under Hughton, and push himself up the pecking order between now and the end of the season.
Here’s what Forest fans had to say on his performances this week…
And he can’t get in our starting line-up. Would love to know why when we can’t score a goal to save our lives. #NFFC

It’s the guy with the assist we need to sign. Cannot finish this season with the highest goal input being own goals. That’s beyond embarrassing
