Nottingham Forest

‘Class above this league’ – Plenty of Nottingham Forest fans express delight at player despite weekend defeat



It was a hugely disappointing afternoon for Nottingham Forest at the weekend, with the pressure really now on Martin O’Neill at the City Ground.

The Reds will have undoubtedly been looking to bounce back after a dismal defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, just days after losing again in Yorkshire, this time to Rotherham United.

But goals from Joe Rothwell and Danny Graham for Blackburn Rovers at the weekend, succumbed Forest to their third defeat in a week, and all but ruined their hopes of finishing in the play-off spots.

After a disappointing run of form, Forest sit 11th in the Sky Bet Championship table and eight points off the top six, following an afternoon that was massively frustrating for all concerned with the club.

Here, we take a look at Forest fans’ reactions to the right-back’s display at the weekend…
