HENRI IS KING OF THE REDS
HENRI Lansbury has been at the heart of Nottingham Forest’s rejuvenation under Dougie Freedman – and midfield partner Ben Osborn is full of praise for the former Arsenal man.
Lansbury, 24, has recently been handed the captain’s armband at the City Ground, and a wonderful freekick in midweek helped secure a valuable three points against promo- tion-chasing Bournemouth.
Osborn has been in sparkling form himself, but it is his central midfield team-mate that he cited as a driving force behind Forest’s impressive revival.
“We all know the potential and ability he has, because he shows it every day in training,” the 20-yearold said.
“It feels as though every time he’s on the pitch he’s going to get us a goal at any minute. If we have a freekick, you know he’s more than likely going to work the keeper at the very least.
“He is on fire at the minute. When you give him the ball you know he is going to make the right decision with it. I think he’s leading the team with his actions on the pitch, as much as anything. We know what he’s capable of.”
