Well that’s certainly one way to get back in the fan’s good books.
Having been called a liability during his previous outing, Ryan Yates certainly made up for it with his goal during Forest’s draw Middlesbrough last night, getting his head on the end of a Matty Cash cross to give the home side the lead.
Yates has had a bit of a tough time at Forest recently, having missed a huge chunk of the start of the season as he dealt with some injury problems, and then when he finally managed to make his way back into the side, he gets himself sent off against Bristol City and we have to start back at square one.
However, having scored his first goal for the club since February, Forest fans were over the moon with his effort on the night, with some fans taking it as an opportunity to hit back at those who criticised him for his red card against City a few weeks ago.

Should Ryan Yates be considered a lock for the starting eleven?
Let’s just hope that he manages to stay in the team longer than last time.
