Nottingham Forest scored a much needed win over Burton Albion this afternoon to recover from last week’s Derby County loss and give them three welcome home points at the City Ground.
The Reds ran out 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Barrie McKay and Eric Lichaj, and the win should give Mark Waburton some breathing room following a few murmurings from fans last week that he potentially wasn’t the man for the job.
The win over Nigel Clough’s men maintains Forest’s stop start beginning to the Championship season, and the club will be hoping to build on the win and get some consistency in their game as they look to climb the table and move away from any potential relegation battle.
Many Forest fans took to Twitter following the game to give their thoughts on the game and voice their opinions, and we at FLW have taken a look at exactly how Forest fans reacted to what was a crucial win for the home side…

Murphy needs dropping for a bit absolutely dreadful today but others around him more than made up for it #nffc

The only time I've seen a player celebrate by doing a lap of the pitch fist pumping, love Lichaj #NFFC
