Lewis Walters has continued his fine form for Nottingham Forest’s development side by scoring against QPR on Friday afternoon.
The 21-year-old scored his second goal for Philippe Montanier’s development side following his move from Championship rivals Leeds this summer, following his release.
The versatile attacker described Forest’s display as a “great team performance” on his personal Twitter account, as Forest ran riot at Loftus Road with a 5-0 win.
After failing to make an appearance for Leeds’ senior side, Walters was told his contract was to be terminated earlier this summer despite being one of the senior heads in Leeds’ youth team.
Wearing the number seven shirt, Walters tapped in calmly to an empty net after good work from the impressive Brereton allowed him to square to Walters during the second half, adding to the goal he scored in a 2-2 draw against Cardiff’s reserves last month.
The win for Forest’s development side is an unlikely one after a dismal start to the season that has seen them win just once in nine games, including a 7-0 loss to Brighton.
Walters will be delighted to show Leeds fans what they’re missing, as he aims to prove Elland Road chiefs that they were wrong to allow him to leave.
