Over the weekend with real news slow given the November international break and the natural lull in the Championship fixture list, Nottingham Forest’s social media team tweeted out a small stat about striker Lewis Grabban’s start to life at the City Ground.

Having come in from Bournemouth over the summer for a reported £6million, fans knew what we were getting with the 30-year-old given his scoring record for other clubs and with 18 appearances in total across all competitions, he’s already helped himself to ten goals – with nine of those coming in the second tier itself.

As we wait for our next fixture against Hull City to cycle around at the weekend, we are one point outside of the Play-Off spots and with a few more draws turned into victories the picture would look even brighter.

Grabban’s role in that is obvious for everyone to see and maybe the above Tweet is something fans knew, but I’m not a statto and it took me by surprise.

Quite rightly, Grabban took the plaudits for his efforts, but Karanka also received a fair amount of praise from fans on social media for bringing him in.
