Forest City Ground

Freedman guided Forest to a 3-2 win against Brighton this afternoon.

Nottingham Forest have certainly had a tumultuous week. The club saw Stuart Pearce on his way out of the club and they immediately replaced him with former Bolton Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman.

Freedman took control of his first game as head coach at Forest today, taking on Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Arena and despite going 1-0 down it was a dream start to Freedman’s time in charge at Forest, as they went on to win the game 3-2.

One man quick to praise Freedman was a former Nottingham Forest player himself in Jermaine Jenas.

Freedman spent two years at Forest as a player between 1998 and 2000 and during that time Jenas made the first-team at the club, so the pair know each other.

Jenas, who was at Forest from 1999 till 2002 and also returned to the club on loan in 2012.

Now the injury-prone midfielder works mostly as a pundit for various different stations which makes him very vocal on Twitter.

While the main focus of his discussion today was the North London derby, he did also find time to give Freedman the applause he deserved for a positive start at his beloved Forest:
