Nottingham Forest youngster Ben Osborn's impressive run of form continued last night, despite his side's 3-2 defeat to Fulham.
The Reds slipped to another disappointing loss in London, but Osborn's display was sure to have caught the eye.
The 20-year-old has burst onto the scene this campaign and he appears to have built on the momentum that his first goal for the club gave him.
Osborn slammed in a last-minute winner against Derby County at the weekend, but it was another side of his game which was on display against Fulham.

The academy graduate created four chances for his teammates - no other player made more than two - and showed that he can carve open opportunities, as well as score them.
He also proved to be a robust customer in midfield, winning four tackles and proving that he can be an asset in a defensive sense as well as an offensive one.
It was a performance which should give Stuart Pearce encouragement in the face of disappointment.
Although the defeat to Fulham can only go down as another disheartening moment in what has been a dire campaign for the Reds, Osborn's persistent excellence is something to be positive about and his emergence may be the best thing to come out of this season.
