Nottingham Forest won 2-1 at home to Blackpool in the Championship this afternoon.
Nottingham Forest have started well to life under Steve Cooper – the former Swansea City boss saw his side win their last two before the international break, scoring three goals in each game.
Today his side hosted Blackpool who started the day in 12th-place of the Championship table after some resurgent form, but the home side would take the lead after 22 minutes through Brennan Johnson.
Lewis Grabban would then put Forest back in front in the second half after Jerry Yates equalised for Blackpool
For Forest fans, there was plenty to mull over today, and one man in particular seemed to garner a lot of praise – Ryan Yates.
The midfielder has come into some good form since Cooper’s arrival and put on another good show today – see what these Nottingham Forest fans said on Twitter about the 23-year-old today:
#Nffc So nice to see Yates playing with a smile on his face,with the shackles off,different player.

Solid half from #NFFC lovely passing move and finish for the goal..Not really troubled by Blackpool apart from that one moment when se didn't deal with the ball in the air again..Not worked for Spence today and Lowe has been more miss than hit today so far..Yates has played well
