Nottingham Forest's Britt Assombalonga: 2014 in pictures

We compile the photos summarising Nottingham Forest's striker Britt Assombalonga's highlights of the past year.

Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga has had a whirlwind year during 2014. 

The clinical front man has gone from unknown quantity to Championship hot-shot in rapid time and in this piece we take a look at the photographic highlights of his year. 

Assombalonga started the year at Peterborough United, where he had already established himself as one of the side's key players.

The Congolese marksman had signed for Posh from Watford during the summer of 2013 to become their record signing and wasted little time repaying their faith. 

Assombalonga would go on to be one of the deadliest strikers in League One and his goal in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy (pictured above), which Posh would go on to win, was a particularly memorable moment of his time at London Road. 

Assombalonga's form at Posh, where he scored 33 times in 58 games, would eventually attract the attentions of Nottingham Forest.

The Championship side spent £5.5 million to sign the goal-getter and he made his debut against Blackpool.

Although the 22-year-old did not score during his first appearance, it did not take him long to open his account and he has barely slowed down since. 

Assombalonga scored his first goal for the club during a 2-2 draw with Bolton Wanderers, but his most memorable strike to date arguably came against Derby County (pictured above). 

Assombalonga has gone on to score 12 goals in his first 23 Forest matches and looks to be one of the most talented players they have had in their ranks for a number of years.

His partnership with fellow summer recruit Michail Antonio has been one of the club's success stories and the pair will be the Reds' key players as they head into 2015 looking to break into the play-off spots.
