'Definitely ready': Nottingham Forest fans react to Tyler Walker's Lincoln heroics

Nottingham Forest fans surport their team during the Sky Bet Championship match between Nottingham Forest and Ipswich Town at City Ground on May 7, 2017 in Nottingham, England.

Imps loanee Tyler Walker is making goal-scoring look easy in League One but is he ready for the Championship with Nottingham Forest?

It is not just the volume of the goals but the way he scores them that makes Tyler Walker stand out.

The Nottingham Forest striker plundered 26 on loan at Mansfield Town last season and he has made the step up to League One level look easy after joining an upwardly mobile Lincoln City side in another 12-month deal.

Seven games into his Imps career, Walker has already found the net four times in the third tier and scored twice in Saturday’s impressive 2-0 win against play-off rivals Fleetwood Town.

The first was a wonderful diving header, evoking memories of soaring Swede Henrik Larsson in Euro 2014. The second, a clinical, composed and seemingly effortless one-on-one finish, rolled past the Fleetwood goalkeeper after latching onto a glorious Callum Connolly pass.

Walker’s form away from the City Ground is not going unnoticed either with Forest fans increasingly excited about a 22-year-old who looks set to be a big part of the club’s near future.

But maybe the goal-scoring son of Forest legend Des Walker is ready now. With Rafa Mir struggling to impress as Lewis Grabban’s back-up, Sabri Lamouchi could do with one more striker and Walker is gaining a reputation for finding the back of the net with his eyes closed.

Did someone say 're-call clause'?
