Focus On Jenas As Forest Move On Up

29 October 2012 07:30
All of the reaction to Nottingham Forest's big weekend win may have been focused on Jermaine Jenas but the Reds' result was impressive in its own right

The 4-1 thumping of Barnsley at Oakwell took Sean O''Driscoll's side to the verge of the play-off places and contained a host of fine individual performances.

Inevitably perhaps, though, it was the cameo display by on-loan Tottenham man Jermaine Jenas that provided the backdrop to most media reports of the game.

O'Driscoll afterwards admitted he had been 'wary' of taking on board a 'big name' player, especially when Jenas is far from guaranteed a regular start in the Forest side.

But he praised the impact that the midfielder has made, both on and off the pitch, telling the official club website: "His attitude has been great, he's got great experience and we've used his opinion on things because he has an influence on the group."
