‘Different gravy’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans hail one man’s performance despite Blackburn loss

It was another hugely disappointing evening for Nottingham Forest who fell to their third defeat of the season last night.

The Reds have now picked up zero points from their first three games, falling to their third successive 2-1 defeat after losing to Blackburn Rovers at the City Ground.

Blackburn took the lead straight after half-time when Daniel Ayala glanced in Harry Pickering’s free-kick.

Forest found a leveller later on, though, with a piece of individual brilliance from Philip Zinckernagel drawing them back on level terms.

That looked like it had earned Forest a point, but with five minutes to go, a defensive error saw Darragh Lenihan head into an empty net from the penalty spot to give Rovers the win.

Naturally, fans were far from happy with the performance, particularly in the second half, but a bit of individual brilliance by Zinckernagel gave them hope on the night.

Zinckernagel has undoubtedly been Forest’s most positive player so far this season, registering three assists and scoring one goal in three starts since joining on loan from Watford.

The winger has hit the ground running, and opened his account in a Forest shirt when he arrowed a left-footed effort into the bottom corner via the post.

Here, we take a look at Forest fans’ reactions to his performance on Wednesday night…
