Gary Gardner is definitely doing his best to win over any fans with lingering doubts about his loan move from Aston Villa.

Against Forest, he was one of the best players on the park, linking up neat and tidily. He’s not pulling up any trees but he has put in some consistent performances.

Supporters on Twitter were keen to praise the 26-year-old:

Two fans debated whether he is now a Blue despite still being a Villa player:

I especially liked Gary’s freekick in the first half. It was a high-class strike, and it was so close to being in. With Kieftenbeld and him in the middle, we do look a lot more solid and assured.

I don’t think it would have been the pairing that Monk would have had in mind earlier in the summer but with the circumstances surrounding FFP, it’s probably the best we can hope for until the transfer restrictions are lifted.
