Nottingham Forest got themselves another important win at the weekend as they kicked off the Saturday afternoon action in the Championship with a win over their fiercest of rivals.
Derby County arrived at the City Ground looking to make their underdog tag for this one look foolish.
Instead, though, it was the Reds – billed as favourites at the start of the game – that won the day with a goal in the second half from striker Lewis Grabban.
He wasn’t the only Red to impress, though, and it was actually a couple of others that made the EFL Team of the Week – which is solely Championship based this time around thanks to FA Cup action.
Matty Cash and Tiago Silva got the nod, then, so let’s take a look at what has been said by Reds fans about the news:

Cash deserves a huge amount of credit. 🥴
First name on the EFL teamsheet every week.

Not just Cashy, but Sabri also. Most improved player since he arrived. His man-management and attention to detail is just brilliant. 👌
One just wonders how good Ben Osborn would be now if he'd had stayed on Trentside to work under Sabri…🤔 #NFFC

Silva pure class Saturday. Can’t wait for Sow to get match fit and start smashing opponents up again 💥

If this came with a trophy I'm sure he'd run out of space by now

Cash has been brilliant, silva knows the pace of the championship now and his showing why he was rated so highly by the portuguese sports journalists

A good performance from both, and fans will hope that they can continue that after the international break.
