Nottingham Forest fans are enjoying Ben Watson’s impact on midfield

Nottingham Forest stretched their unbeaten run in the English Championship to five matches on Tuesday night after a hard-fought point away to Norwich City.

Caught in that difficult position of being unable to compete for play-off positions and not being in fear of relegation, the closing stages of the season for Forest are all about showing improvement under Aitor Karanka.

Stopping the rot of consecutive defeats fixture after fixture, that certainly appears to be working out well so far.

Forest had to dig deep to ensure they kept a clean sheet against Norwich and while they were lacklustre in attack, the 0-0 draw will be seen as a good point from their perspective.

At the heart of the battling performance was Ben Watson, who only signed for the club last month after being released by Watford.

Fans were delighted with his midfield display on Tuesday night, believing their team keep the ball better and have more leadership now he’s in the team.
