Former Everton and Sheffield United defender Phil Jagielka on BBC Radio 5 Live:

"That is exactly the result and performance Nottingham Forest needed.

"When the City Ground is in full voice like that it is an amazing stadium to play at but it is difficult for the fans to create that atmosphere when they go to home games if they are nervous and worried.

"They had been docked a few points which they are hoping to get back, but the win tonight is massive for them. To bounce back in this manner and get the result is great and puts down a bit of marker to Luton Town for tomorrow who will need a result themselves to keep pace.

"The new approach brought in by Nuno Espirito Santo to Forest, they play with two wide men who make the pitch really big and have a target man up top - that gives Morgan Gibbs-White the space in the pockets to pick up the ball and create.

"He is a very inventive player and they are the areas you want him to be picking up the ball in and expressing himself... To be involved in all three goals in the game shows just how fantastic a game he had.

"Forest will be hoping that they can go on and build on the win now and record a few more."
