‘Looks a player’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans react to rarely-seen star’s display v Huddersfield Town

Published

on

Nottingham Forest fell to consecutive defeats for the first time under Steve Cooper’s stewardship last night, as Duane Holmes’ strike allowed Huddersfield Town to take all three points away from the City Ground.

Coming into this tie off the back of their 2-0 away loss to Middlesbrough on Sunday afternoon, the East Midlands side would have been desperate to make amends straight away after getting off to a good start under the Welshman, elevating themselves from relegation favourites to play-off contenders.

They had a real chance to leapfrog yesterday evening’s opponents in the league table and were favourites to do so with their home advantage and performances under 42-year-old Cooper, but it wasn’t to be and the Reds may now find themselves dragged into a midtable position for the time being with others just below them having two or three games in hand over them.

However, there was praise for certain Forest individuals for their respective performances against Carlos Corberan’s men having dominated the match, with Scott McKenna once again being singled out as a shining light alongside Joe Worrall at the heart of defence.

The Scotland international has been consistently excellent for the Reds since his arrival last year – and Manchester United loanee James Garner also performed well – improving vastly since struggling early on in the season and continuing to show why he should be one of the first names on the teamsheet.

But how did Xande Silva perform after receiving fan praise against Boro last week? What did they make of him in this game after seeing him start his first senior game for the club?

We take a look at how a selection of Forest supporters reacted to his display.
