Nottingham Forest have climbed to sixth in the Championship table after winning 1-0 against Sheffield United on Saturday at the City ground.
Lewis Grabban scored the only goal of the match against the Blades.
Forest spent heavily in the summer transfer window with Aitor Karanka making a wholesome change to the squad. It took a while for the squad to gel, and now they are gradually getting the results.
Karanka’s side lost only one Championship game in their last 10 matches. The victory against Sheffield United also saw the Blades being knocked off the Championship summit.
Norwich City have jumped to the top spot. Forest are catching up quickly with other promotion hopefuls, and find themselves only four points behind the Canaries.
Karanka took to social networking site Twitter after the match to express his reaction. The former Boro boss has praised his players and has thanked the fans for their support.
Another win that makes me believe in this team even more.
Very pleased for the players and our fans, thank you for your support! pic.twitter.com/Lotu6WS3CA

Carvalho class act could become one of the best players to ever wear the Garibaldi. Great team performance well done.

Good result Mr K, some people might start thinking you know what you are doing? I’m one of those lucky people who already know you do? Onwards and upwards ?
