Dowell was influential in Forest’s 4-0 home win over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, having played 77 minutes as he scored one and set up Tyler Walker.
Dowell's strike was well taken, as the midfielder was put clean through on goal, knocked the ball calmly round the onrushing keeper and finished into the net.

The result took Forest to ninth in the table, two points off Aston Villa who currently occupy the final play-off spot.
