Nottingham Forest winger Ben Osborn sends message on Twitter after winning Championship accolade

Nottingham Forest's Ben Osborn was named as the Football League's Young Player of the Month for January.

Nottingham Forest winger Ben Osborn has thanked supporters for their backing on social media site Twitter.

Osborn was announced as the Football League's Young Player of the Month for January today, after enjoying an impressive run of form.

And the 21-year-old has been delighted with the message he has received from Forest fans.

Osborn picked up an injury in the early part of the season, but he has quickly come back to prominence at the City Ground.

The youngster has featured regularly of late and he is very highly regarded by manager Dougie Freedman.

Osborn has now played 23 times this season, and he scored his first goal of the campaign against Charlton Athletic at the start of January.

Osborn is part of a group of youngsters currently breaking through into Freedman’s squad, with Jorge Grant and Tyler Walker also on the fringes of the first-team.

Forest’s next match comes against Burnley, where they will be looking to bounce back from a defeat against Huddersfield Town.
