‘Awful,’ ‘Not good enough’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans react to player’s performance v Reading



A number of Nottingham Forest fans have been lamenting the performance by midfielder Harry Arter during their 2-0 defeat at Reading which saw their winless run stretch to five matches.

Chris Hughton’s side headed into the game under pressure to get back to winning ways and end a goal drought after not scoring in their last four fixtures in the Championship. However, there hopes of doing that were heavily impacted by Ryan Yates being shown a red card inside the 14th minute for a handball on the line after Brice Samba’s error. The hosts took the lead from the resulting spot-kick.

Against Reading the Republic of Ireland international was unable to really prevent the Royals from gaining a complete grip on the game after Forest went down to ten men. The 30-year-old struggled to affect the game in possession when he was able to get on the ball and it became difficult for Forest to create any real chances going forwards.
