LOAN WATCH: Southampton striker Sharp helps Nottingham Forest snap losing streak

Nottingham Forest returned to the winners list with a 2-0 victory over Burnley in the Championship on the weekend.

Striker Billy Sharp, on a season-long loan from Southampton, netted his sixth goal of the campaign as Forest bounced back from two successive defeats.

Dexter Blackstock opened Forest’s account just before the hour with a looped header over Clarets keeper Lee Grant before Sharp doubled the advantage in the 76th minute.

After some great build-up work from Aston Villa loanee Alan Hutton, Sharp was slipped in by Andy Reid to slot home past Grant to keep Forest in ninth position on the tier two table.

Of the six games Sharp has scored in, the two-goal triumph over Burnley was the third fixture in which the side has won courtesy of the ex-Doncaster Rovers ace’s exploits.
