Jack Colback Scores A Volley So Outrageous, Fans Are Convinced He Didn't Mean It
| Last updated
Jack Colback has just scored one of the greatest volleys you'll ever see to put Nottingham Forest 3-0 up against West Bromwich Albion - but supporters think it was an accident.
Steve Cooper's side raced to a 2-0 lead thanks to Brennan Johnson's penalty and a Ryan Yates header, with Darnell Furlong also sent off to further Albion's misery.
The pick of the bunch was saved for added time however, as Colback received a cushioned pass from Johnson.
What followed was a wicked left footed volley that looped over David Button and into the visitor's net.

Colback looked completely stunned as his teammates rushed over to celebrate and the 32-year-old put his hand to his mouth.
The City Ground came unglued and those inside the stadium were just as shocked as their midfielder.
It's quickly gone viral on social media and it's got fans debating if the 'shot' was actually a wayward cross.
One commented: "Never in a million years has he meant that."
Another added: "He's not even looking at the goal. But fair play he'll take it I guess."
A third tweeted: "Cannot for the life of me decipher whether he meant that or not."
While someone put: "His face immediately after says it all surely."
Victory for Forest would keep them fifth in the Championship as they looked for a spot in this season's play-offs.
They're five points clear of seventh place Millwall, who beat Hull City 2-1 earlier on Monday.
Forest haven't played Premier League football since 2000 and Cooper believes his side need to keep their composure.
He said earlier this month per the Nottingham Post: "I think what is important at this stage of the season is that we don’t get too caught up in chasing results.
"Of course we want to win, that’s always the most important thing.
"But we have to focus even more now on how we play. In the end, that’s how we will win games.
"We can’t think too much about the league position going into games. We’ve just got to think about being ready for the next game, committing to it, hopefully having the right plan and delivering it."
Do you think Nottingham Forest will be promoted to the Premier League?
