That’s the man that we all know and love.
Having not been incredibly consistent this season when it comes to being amongst the goals, either by scoring them himself or setting them up, Joe Lolley burst into life this afternoon in Forest’s victory over Luton Town, even if one of his efforts did have a huge slice of luck involved.
The 27-year-old scored both of the Reds’ goals against the Hatters, the second of which being an absolute screamer to give them the lead, something that left a lot of fans delighted.
It wasn’t just the fact he managed to get on the scoresheet that left the faithful excited though, having not been at his best in comparison to his fine form of last campaign, a lot of them were left hoping that this game might be the thing that sparks him back into life and can act as something of a catalyst as we move into the second half of the season.
Legitimately just had enough and decided to deal with it himself.

A Lolley in full flow with the bit between his teeth is different gravy – it just hasn’t been often enough this year. Plays like this down the stretch and we’ve always got a chance. #NFFC

That’s the Lolley from last season if he’s finally found his form again he will be like a new signing! #nffc

Where has this Joe Lolley been all season? #NFFC

Will Lolley be able to keep up this form for the rest of the season?
Let’s just hope that he’s around to see it though, you never know if Aston Villa are going to rekindle their interest in him again as they fight off relegation.
