Nottingham Forest fans have taken to Twitter to laud Jack Colback after the midfielder put in a very good performance in Aitor Karanka's side's victory over Birmingham City on Saturday.
Forest went into the game off the back of an impressive 5-2 win over Queens Park Rangers last weekend, and they managed to make it back to back wins at the expense of the relegation candidates in what proved to be Steve Cotterill's final game in charge of the Blues.
Joe Lolley and Matty Cash may have scored the goals, but there were a number of impressive displays from the home side, including one from Newcastle loanee Colback.
Colback could not get a look in at St James' Park this season, often turning out for the under-23 side before he secured a loan move to the City Ground - but he has proven to be a very shrewd signing for Forest so far.
He was impressive in the middle of the park alongside another recent signing Ben Watson, and that has helped give the fans plenty of confidence heading into a week which sees them host their bitter rivals Derby County after a trip to Norwich City in midweek.
And several of the fans who have taken to social media have suggested that they would like to see the club look to sign Colback permanently at the end of the season if he continues to impress.
Here is the best of the reaction...
Just got back from game and a little nervy at the end. Colback and Lolley looked class, Cash improving game by game. 3pts in the bag! #nffc— Steve (@brownmvp1983) March 3, 2018
Fox & Tobias CB’s and Watson & Colback CM’s... that’s building a solid spine to the team. Not had it for years, need to sign colback in the summer #nffc— Gaz Brown (@Gaz23Brown) March 3, 2018
Thought @mattycash622, @j0e10113y, @Leetomlin10, Colback & Watson were top class today! Fox & @tobiasfoficial look a very good defensive partnership too! four unbeaten, big week ahead next week! ⚪️ #NFFC #COYR #ThatLovingFeeling— Will Thorpe (@ThorpeyNFFC) March 3, 2018

Why did newcastle fans hate colback so much? He’s been an absolute beast for us— Ollie (@MovesLikeJagahh) March 4, 2018
Not one bit. Three quality options at this level.— Ed 034 (@dingdinghopkin) March 3, 2018
I just hope we can somehow keep hold of colback
Definitely, thought Watson and Colback were very impressive sitting in that midfield as well— Carl Aldred (@carl_aldred) March 3, 2018
@mickthehood Have a word with Rafa and ask him to let us keep Jack Colback.The lad had a terrific game for us today bossed the midfield.I ve heard a certain Mr Lansbury is available from Villa if you want a replacement— Steve Musson (@pierisplant) March 3, 2018
