Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter were urging manager Aitor Karanka to take penalty duties away from striker Lewis Grabban, despite him scoring one in the 3-0 win over Bolton on Wednesday evening.
The Reds hadn’t won at Bolton since 1991, but Karanka’s side outclassed the home team, with Joe Lolley firing them ahead in the first half thanks to a fantastic left-footed strike.

Early in the second period, Grabban had the chance to double his side’s lead from the spot after he was taken out by Bolton right-back Mark Little. His effort was saved by Ben Alnwick though, meaning the £6m summer signing has now missed three penalties in his 14 appearances so far this season.
The 30-year-old made amends though, with a neat finish and a second penalty, which he put in the same corner but with better results. Grabban now has eight league goals this season but many fans on Twitter still want to see him taken off penalties.
