Aston Villa midfielder Gary Gardner is delighted with Nottingham Forest’s win against Derby County in the Championship on Friday evening.

Aston Villa midfielder Gary Gardner has taken to social networking Twitter to express his delight at Nottingham Forest’s win against Derby County in the Championship.

Forest defeated Derby 1-0 at the City Ground in the East Midlands derby on Friday evening, thanks to Nelson Oliveira’s goal in the fifth minute.

Gardner, who played for Forest on loan from Premier League side Villa during the second half of last season, is overjoyed with the Reds’ victory.

Forest were the underdogs heading into Friday’s match, but they fully deserved the three points.

Dougie Freedman’s side played with passion and showed commitment, and fans will have enjoyed that.

The win against Derby means that the Reds are now 15th in the Championship table with 17 points from 16 matches, seven points above the relegation zone.

Forest will take on Brentford away from home in the league after the two-week international break.
