‘Huge blow’, ‘We knew it was coming’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans react as Djed Spence news emerges

Published

on

Middlesbrough manager Chris Wilder has confirmed he will recall Djed Spence from his loan spell amid a major Covid-19 outbreak at the Riverside, as he spoke to Sky Sports News reporter Keith Downie.

The 21-year-old has been a key cog in Steve Cooper’s side’s machine this term as an ever-present figure on the right, operating both as a wing-back and a right-back after arriving at the City Ground on a season-long loan deal on transfer deadline day.

In just 18 league appearances for the East Midlands outfit, he has established himself as a fan favourite at Forest and will be a big miss for Cooper’s men with Mohamed Drager yet to feature for the club and Jordi Osei-Tutu out with yet another injury.

This potentially leaves youngster Fin Back as the club’s first-choice option there for the time being, with Spence now set to return to the Riverside to compete with Isaiah Jones for a starting spot at right wing-back, though it remains to be seen whether Wilder will play either man on the left-hand side.

The form of Jones provided the Reds’ supporters with hope that he wouldn’t be recalled – but their worst fears have been realised and they may now have to look for a replacement in their quest to secure a top-six spot at the end of the season.

With this news emerging, how are the Midlands outfit’s supporters feeling? Are they not as heartbroken as they thought because they expected his return to happen? Crushed by this update?
