Nottingham Forest enjoyed a 2-1 win over Luton Town on Saturday and Lewis Grabban got himself on the scoresheet. The 31-year-old was having a four-game goal drought in the Championship before registering against the Hatters, having failed to score in October, but Grabban looks back to form and is now one of the top-scorers in the second tier.

His goal against Luton showed off his tenacity, pace and ruthless finishing from close range. Grabban had missed an opportunity in the penalty area, but he made no mistake with his goal. The uncapped Jamaican latched onto a through ball, wrestled off a defender and slotted his effort past James Shea.

Against Luton, Grabban played for 91 minutes, made 24 touches, completed 76.9% of his 13 passes, whipped in three crosses with 67% accuracy, made two successful dribbles and had three shots with one hitting the target. The 31-year-old has made 14 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating seven goals.

Do Nottingham Forest need to sign backup for Lewis Grabban in January?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Grabban was struggling in front of goal before his effort against Luton, having scored just once since August, but he still finds himself in the top-10 of Championship goalscorers (6) and put in a good performance over the weekend.
