Nottingham Forest goal machine Britt Assombalonga was on target once again last night, scoring a superb goal from outside the box.

Philippe Montanier's side beat Port Vale 2-0 in the pre-season friendly, with Assombalonga's goal the highlight.

Assombalonga's goal reinforces why he is so highly rated, and why Forest need to hang onto him this season if they are to stand a chance of making the play-offs.

Two seasons ago he was the club's top scorer before he sustained a devastating knee injury which caused him to miss more than a year's worth of action.

He returned to action late last season, scoring on the final day, a winner against MK Dons. He looks ready to carry on where he left off, although Forest may be wise to keep him under wraps now until the Championship season kicks off.
