Nottingham Forest fans praised and congratulated Matty Cash after the Reds beat East Midlands rivals Derby County 3-0.
Cash was handed the captain’s armband on the 83rd minute after captain for the night Joe Worrall was substituted (via WhoScored).
Cash had a good game at right-back as Sabri Lamouchi’s side swept aside their Championship rivals. The fullback was given an 8/10 rating by Nottinghamshire Live, who praised his energetic display.
The Englishman has enjoyed a good start to the season so far, starting all but two of the club’s games in the league and Carabao Cup (via WhoScored).
The win against Derby extends Lamouchi’s unbeaten run to six games so far, with the Frenchman’s only loss coming in the opening game against West Bromwich Albion.
Forest have a tough fixture next as they travel to fellow promotion-chasers Preston North End on Saturday afternoon.
Fans were chuffed for the 22-year-old following his short time as captain and took to Twitter to praise and congratulate him.
Here is a selection of tweets from Nottingham Forest fans:
Congratulations – just shows where commitment, hard-work and talent can take you. #nffc
