Nottingham Forest boss Hughton delighted with Man Utd midfielder Garner on debut

Nottingham Forest boss Chris Hughton was delighted with James Garner's debut for victory over Coventry City.

Garner has joined on-loan to the end of the season from Manchester United.

Last night, a goal from Lewis Grabban and an own goal by Michael Rose saw Forest turn the game around and leave Coventry with a victory.

"I was really pleased," Hughton said of Garner. "When we took him on, we knew that he had half a season of experience at Watford and that can be just being involved in the squad. He had 11 starts and came on as a sub on another seven occasions, so when he finishes this season he will have had great experience at two Championship clubs and I think he showed that today.

"For a young player he showed maturity in a gruelling game as we were under pressure in the second half, so he had to play a bit of a different role, but I was really pleased for him."
