Nottingham Forest have had a fine time of things this season in the Sky Bet Championship so far and look like they won’t be going anywhere soon from the promotion picture.
As West Bromwich Albion lost to Cardiff City last night, the Reds took another step towards the top two with a fine, gritty win over Brentford in what was an important clash for both sides at Griffin Park.
We’ve seen time and again this season that Forest are capable of really battling it out for a result and they did last night, with the slimmest of margins proving enough to earn the three points.
Suitably, a number of their players came in for praise last night and one of those was defender Tobias Figueiredo.
Let’s take a look at what was said on Twitter about the centre half as Reds fans see their hopes of a Premier League return this season grow:

Dawson decent for some games. But Figs gotta be first choice in there when fit. Monster of a man

Best central defender at the club and been quality since he walked through the door …big strong fast tough and unflappable…top man

That game went far more smoothly than I ever envisaged it would. Every #NFFC player played well. Lolley in the centre & Silva on the left worked a treat in the first half, Ameobi a nuisance, Watson imperious & the best I’ve seen Figueiredo play. He bullied Watkins at times. 1/2

Tobias Figueredo. Take a bow. He’s turning into a proper centre half #NFFC
