It was almost the icing on the cake, but then Joao Carvalho and Alfa Semedo went and made it four, so they technically took the prize.
When QPR were reduced to ten men early in the second half, you knew it was only going to be a matter of time before the goals started pouring in, and it was Lewis Grabban that got the whole thing started. However Nottingham Forest fans didn’t seem too enamoured with the man who put the ball in the net, in fact they were more impressed with the man who set him up, Sammy Ameobi.
His turn of pace down the left-hand side and cross to Grabban at the back post really seemed to catch the eyes, mainly because it was so pleasing on them. And Forest fans took to Twitter to praise him not just for his effort on the night, but also for what he’s been able to bring to the club through the season so far.
Cross from sammy 👌🏻

Does Sammy Ameobi deserve a new contract?
More stuff like this, and he’ll be well on his way to earning that contract. Now is as good a time as any.
