Nottingham Forest supporters have until 12pm tomorrow (Wednesday) to vote for their The Bed Chambers Player of the Month for April.The Reds endured a disappointing month in terms of results but there were a number of outstanding individual performances, in particular from two of the younger members of the Forest squad.
Having been a virtual ever-present in the Forest side this season, Antonio enjoyed another strong month in April including a superb individual display in the 3-3 draw at Blackburn Rovers. After nodding in Modou Barrow’s cross to bring The Reds level early on, Antonio netted an excellent low strike with just two minutes remaining to ensure Forest took a share of the spoils away from Ewood Park.
With injuries to Britt Assombalonga, Dexter Blackstock and Matty Fryatt affecting the Forest strikeforce, Walker was handed an opportunity to make a name for himself in attack. He wasted little time after stepping off the bench at Griffin Park earlier in the month where he put Forest in front against promotion-chasing Brentford by controlling a long ball over the top and smashing home a low effort past the home goalkeeper.
Always a popular member of the Forest squad among the supporters, Lichaj once again produced a month of consistent displays which also highlighted his versatility as he made appearances on both sides of the back four. The American was able to deal with the attacking threat from promotion contenders Wolves, Watford and Ipswich during April and received deserved recognition from the fans.
A year on from making his debut for the club, Osborn has continued to show maturity beyond his years to compete against the more experienced David Vaughan, Henri Lansbury and Gary Gardner for a midfield berth. The young midfielder delivered an excellent cross to provide Todd Kane with Forest’s second goal at Brentford earlier in the month and has shown that there is plenty more to come from him in 2015-16.
Arguably one of the club’s most popular loan signings over recent years, Gardner has turned in a number of fantastic performances at the heart of the Forest midfield with his talent on the ball and his tenaciousness in the tackle. The on-loan Aston Villa man also curled in a sublime free-kick in the game against Watford to add to his showreel of superb strikes at The City Ground.
