Man Utd midfielder Garner proud helping Nottingham Forest reach Premier League

Manchester United midfielder James Garner is floating after helping Nottingham Forest reach the Premier League.

Garner stole the show at Wembley Stadium as Forest and Huddersfield Town played out a cagey contest under the arch. The 21-year-old had a hand in the only goal of the contest on the stroke of half time.

His fizzed in cross caused havoc among the Yorkshire club's backline as Levi Colwill directed the ball into his own net to give Steve Cooper's side what proved to be an unassailable advantage. Forest join AFC Bournemouth and Fulham in the top flight next season.

for now Garner's full attention is on Forest and he took to Instagram to celebrate his loan club's victory.

Posing with the play off trophy and his medal, Garner simply posted: "Premier League babyyyyyyyyyy."
