The Portuguese international scored twice in a 3-1 triumph.
However the Scot can breathe a sigh of relief after his players put in an excellent performance against Reading to come out with a 3-1 win.
It was a tremendous turnaround in the second half from Forest who were inspired by their Portuguese international forward Nelson Oliveira.
The striker arrived on loan from Benfica this summer in something of a surprise move and has already began to stamp his authority on the Championship.
Prior to the international break he scored the winning goal for Forest in the East Midlands derby against Derby County.
Today he netted two including a sublime finish to give Forest a fantastic win. He was taken off late in the game to a standing ovation from the Forest fans as he continues to establish his position as a cult hero at the club.
Here is how the Forest fans reacted to his performance this afternoon...
Great win, O'Grady was superb as was Vaughan yet again. Oliveira is a class act #nffc— Harry (@Harry_Buzz) November 28, 2015
Much needed win, really hope oliveira can start bagging regularly now #nffc— Joe (@joeh2346) November 28, 2015
Just a loan on £10k a week but Nelson Oliveira has to be our best signing under freedman #nffc— Gaz △⃒⃘ (@NffcgazTaylor) November 28, 2015
Perhaps Oliveira just needed some time. Time and stability is something this team and manager need. We won. #nffc— Richard Jaques (@Rich_Jaques) November 28, 2015
