It’s fair to say that it’s not quite been the first season that Lyle Taylor would have originally had in mind when he signed for Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2020.
The forward had previously been on the books with Charlton Athletic, and was a rare bright spark for the Addicks in the 2019/20 season, as he scored 11 goals for the club.
But his efforts weren’t enough to stop them from being relegated into League One, and he went on to move to the City Ground for the 2020/21 season.
Taylor hasn’t been a regular in the Nottingham Forest starting XI this season though, with Chris Hughton persisting with Lewis Grabban more times than not this term.
Taylor has made 36 appearances in all competitions for the Reds, but has only scored five goals in total for Hughton’s side, as they’ve struggled in this year’s league campaign.
Did Nottingham Forest ever loan out these players or not?
Forest are currently sat 17th in the Championship table, and are just seven points clear of the relegation zone as they head into the international break.
Taylor has been in action for Montserrat recently, and scored a brace as they drew 2-2 with Antigua and Barbuda in their World Cup qualifier.
Plenty of Nottingham Forest supporters took to social media to react to Taylor’s recent showing for his country.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below…
The rest of the Montserrat squad all play non league football. A few are at maidenhead on conference that's as good as it gets. Maybe that's his level 😂

Bravo…. at least he can score against non league standard opposition. Shame he can’t do it against championship teams.
