Nottingham Forest boss Cooper hails Man Utd midfielder Garner ahead of crunch Luton clash

Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper is delighted with the form of on-loan Manchester United midfielder James Garner.

On Good Friday, Forest have a key contest in the early 12:30 BST kick-off, away to another side in the play-off shake-up, Luton Town.

Cooper has spoken glowingly again about Garner this week and is urging for one last big push from the 21-year-old in the coming weeks.

"He is a very good example of making sure he finishes the season strongly, as there's still so much to play for and so many minutes to play," the Forest boss told Nottinghamshire Live.

“He's good for a goal. He's around the set pieces a lot and he's a good technician. He had a wonderful half-volley diagonal pass against Coventry. When it dropped, you had a feeling he was going to connect with it nicely.

“His out-of-possession game might go under the radar but that's been really good as well. He reads and intercepts some really important passes and that's as pleasing for me as the other stuff."
