Nottingham Forest sit eighth in the Championship after going down 2-1 at home to Hull last night, despite the fact the visitors played for over 20 minutes with ten men.
Josh Magennis and Jarred Bowen put the away side 2-0 up, before the former was dismissed on 68 minutes but Forest were unable to snatch a result.
Matty Cash got one back but was unable to spark a revival. It didn’t stop the Forest fans showering him with praise and declaring that he was clearly the best player on the pitch in red.
Forest need to get back on track but there is confidence among the fans that will happen if more of the players follow Cash’s example.
He has been playing right back this season but Cash still showed his old attacking instincts to cut the deficit and produced a performance of quality throughout.
That was reflected in the reception he got from the Forest fans online when he took to his official Twitter account to offer a message of positivity in the wake of the 2-1 loss.
Well played Matty! Any chance of telling the other boys to shoot as well?

You’re playing really well Cashy.
Keep believing, keep driving the team on, and the rewards will come.
3 points Saturday

Well done yesterday. You showed the players in front of you what happens when you actually run at players with the ball. Worthy MOTM 👌….keep showing ‘em!

Matty, you played well so don’t beat yourself up! The lack of creativity was the problem. Not sure what has changed but surely we can get back what is missing on Saturday. Just a blip so keep believing😉
