David Vaughan was brought into the Nottingham Forest line-up to face Birmingham on Friday evening – and fans took to Twitter to celebrate his inclusion.
The 33-year-old will start for Philippe Montanier’s side, making his first appearance for the team since the clash against Fulham on September 27th.
He has only made four appearances for the club in the new campaign in all competitions, but he has managed to get on the score sheet from his defensive midfield position.
Forest fans took to social media to state they were happy to see Vaughan in their starting eleven for the clash at the City Ground.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Pereira would be the first name on my team sheet. Vellios is unlucky to miss out as well but at least Vaughan is cementing his place #nffc

Kasami needed dropping after his last few performances. Vaughan bosses our midfield. Lansbury and Cohen just need to be consistent #NFFC

Vaughan is one of four changes for the clash against Birmingham with Mustapha Carayol, Armand Traore and Nicklas Bendtner also coming into the line-up.
The changes has seen Danny Fox, Pajtim Kasami, Lica and Apostolos Vellios drop out of the starting eleven.
Forest currently sit in a disappointing 18th place in the league, with just one win from their last eight fixtures in all competitions.
Montanier will be keen for his side to turn around their poor form with his job also coming under question with owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi not shy of sacking a manager.
In other Nottingham Forest team news, Montanier believes that striker Ben Brereton can follow in the footsteps of Oliver Burke.
