Michail Antonio is turning into one of the signings of the season, after making a blistering start to his career at Nottingham Forest.

Brought in from Sheffield Wednesday over the summer, the Forest man has quickly established himself as one of the key performers in their side.

His two goals last night helped Forest grab a point against Watford and he will have continued to increase his burgeoning reputation at the City Ground with that display. 

Forest are near the top of the table after an encouraging start to the season, where they have only lost once, and Antonio has been a key reason behind this run of form.

Last night, his general performance was actually not particularly good, but his two goals will have meant that he stole the acclaim.

Antonio was brought to be a creative influence, as well as a goalscorer, but he did not complete any crosses or make any chances for his teammates.

Indeed, his passing was erratic, with only 56% finding their way to a team-mate and he was dispossessed three times during the match.

It is testament to his ability, though, that he will still able to score twice despite an off-colour display.

Antonio had four attempts on goal and also completed three dribbles in the outing, and he will be hoping to continue hitting the back of the net with regularity as the season progresses.
