A number of Nottingham Forest supporters have been heaping praise on defender Cyrus Christie for his recent performances after he helped the Reds pick up a point in a goalless draw at Bristol City.
Chris Hughton’s side were aiming to build on the back-to-back wins they secured over the Easter period against Cardiff City and Queens Park Rangers. However, they had to settle for just a point at Ashton Gate in what was a tight encounter. The points keeps them in with a chance of securing a top-half finish in the remaining games which would be a brilliant achievement considering how the campaign has gone.
One player who delivered an influential performance in their goalless draw at Bristol was Christie, with the right-back managing to continue to show his improvements in recent months with another very solid display. It was a performance that showed that Hughton is starting to get the best out of the 28-year-old and he will be a key performer from now until the end of the season.

Christie managed to win an impressive 13 duels and also managed to make one interception and one tackle to keep the Reds solid down their right-hand side. While he was also strong going the other way manging to complete six successful dribbles and also produce three key passes (Sofascore). Those are the types of displays he needs to produce more consistently.
Many Nottingham Forest fans were keen to suggest that they should consider keeping hold of him now and that he has been a player transformed in recent weeks.
