Nottingham Forest got back to winning ways on Saturday afternoon with a 2-1 victory at Luton Town, which meant they moved back into a playoff position.
Reds boss Sabri Lamouchi can thank Lewis Grabban for his sixth goal of the season and Sammy Ameobi for slamming home a Joe Lolley cross on their way to the three points at Kenilworth Road.

And several of the visiting support were quick to praise the 21-year-old, who managed the full 90 minutes on his comeback.
One member of the Reds faithful labelled him ‘super human’ while another claimed that the midfielder is a future captain of the side, which is a strong possibility considering his contract isn’t up for another season.
‘Magnificent’ and ‘immense’ were just two of the other words used to describe Yates’ performance with one more supporter believing that it was no coincidence that the side won with him in the lineup.
Here’s the best of the reaction:
Yeah. He’s a future captain for me.

Made us a lot more solid in the middle today, allowed lolley and Silva to play more free, players like yates do the graft and sometimes dont get the recognition they deserve, they allow the skillfull players to play. Got a very bright future.

No coincidence that Ryan yates being in the team contributed to the win. Great back up for Watson in the middle of the park whilst Sow is out. Silva performing well as CAM and I'd be happy if he kept carvalio out with him passing and moving the play so well #nffc
