Former Nottingham Forest player Nigel Jemson believes that Lewis Grabban is very important and is sure he’s a big part of Steve Cooper’s plans going forward.
How many goals will Lewis Grabban score for Nottingham Forest this season?
“Lewis is always key, in my opinion he’s a great striker. Sometimes people form the wrong impression of him because they think he’s lazy but when you play up front on your own, sometimes it’s a very difficult job and it’s lonely up there and you need support, now we’ve not always had support to him.
“Lewis’ record proves itself that if he gets chances he will score goals. We need Lewis Grabban in the box, ok he scored a rocket against Birmingham but listen that’s not his game, you know it’s sniffing chances out and his record speaks for itself. So keep Lewis fit and obviously we’ve got Lyle Taylor as well, we’ve got another couple of strikers in the background but Lewis is very important and I’m sure he’s a big part of the manager’s plans going forward,” Jemson told This is Futbol.
Forest under Cooper have seen an upturn in form as they are unbeaten under him. After drawing his opening match against Millwall, the City Ground outfit made it back-to-back victories, as they beat both Barnsley and Birmingham, which has seen the club climb to 17th in the Championship table.
