Nottingham Forest fans gush over Tiago Silva for his role in Derby victory

Nottingham Forest strengthened their bid for promotion this season with a narrow 1-0 victory over arch-rivals Derby County on Saturday afternoon.

Reds striker Lewis Grabban pounced on a defensive error to hand Sabri Lamouchi all three points at the City Ground.

The 31-year-old was gifted a goal when right-back Jayden Bogle played a poor pass across the face of his own penalty area, leaving Grabban with an opportunity to fire home first-time past the visiting goalkeeper.

But it was midfielder Tiago Silva that drew most of the plaudits on social media following the game as many fans believed he was instrumental to them picking up the win.

One supporter claimed he was the best player on the pitch while another went one further by saying he is the best midfielder in the Championship.

‘Immense’ and ‘sublime’ were two other words used to describe the 26-year-old’s performance with a further member of the Forest faithful labelling him an ‘absolute game changer.’

Will Lewis Grabban score twenty goals this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Here’s the best of the reaction:
