Nottingham Forest will be looking for an important win in the next round of midweek games with them just earning the one point from the last couple of games in the Sky Bet Championship.
The Reds have lost at home to Cardiff and then drew away with Millwall in the last pair of games to see them lose ground on the rampant top two; West Brom and Leeds United.
Even so, they remain firmly in play-off contention as we head into the next round of games and fans will feel as though they can get a win against a Middlesbrough side that has struggled to perform on a consistent basis this season.
Certainly, they’ll be hoping for more of these party tricks in the game as well with Forest throwing back to a goal against the Teessiders not so long ago, which was set up by some fabulous work from 22 year-old João Carvalho:

Naturally, fans have reacted to this so let’s take a look at the best of what has been said:
Best individual performance I’ve ever seen from a forest player

And people think we should be selling him 😂

If those performances were a regular occurrence nobody in their right mind would want to sell him, some do question whether or not he will ever do it consistently though, myself included, on his day however, what a player!

Best thing about this is the players reaction towards him (again) and not the goalscorer. Happens every time because they totally know his value 👌
