Nottingham Forest returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory at Luton Town on Saturday afternoon, meaning they moved back into a playoff position.
Lewis Grabban latched onto Tiago Silva’s through ball just before half-time to coolly slot past the Hatters’ goalkeeper before Sammy Ameobi fired home from Joe Lolley’s cross to double their advantage.
The home side pulled one back through Callum McManaman as he curled one round an out-stretched Brice Samba.

Sabri Lamouchi’s men had lost both of their last two matches, and couldn’t play last weekend due to adverse weather conditions causing a waterlogged pitch, so it was a perfect response to kickstart November.
The 47-year-old opted for Yuri Ribeiro over Jack Robinson at left-back, and his decision paid off, as seen with the reaction from the City Ground faithful on social media following the game.
One supporter called him an ‘unbelievable’ player who needs to be starting games week in week out, while another labelled him the ‘Portugal Gareth Bale.’
A further member of the visiting crowd stated that the 22-year-old really stood out in the Forest XI with one more believing he was ‘absolutely class.’
Here’s the best of the reaction:
Massive win! Brilliantly worked goals. Ribeiro is unbelievable & has to start week in week out. Grabban proving people wrong. On to the big one next week!🕺🕺 #NFFC

Yuri Ribeiro really stood out today. Put guys through three or four times in the first half with great passes, ran 80 yards all the way back to the right back position to snuff out a break, and killed off several 2-on-1 threats in his own position late on. @Yuri_oribeiro #nffc

You have to say Ribiero is a different level to Robinson. Has to play left back every game. #NFFC

Sorry but Robinson isn’t fit to clean Yuri’s boots…I know who I’d rather have playing LB every week! #NFFC
