‘Our best player in every position’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans rave about one man after Watford defeat

Nottingham Forest were beaten 1-0 by Watford at Vicarage Road today but many Reds supporters have been raving about the performance of captain Joe Worrall.

Adam Masina’s 17th-minute goal proved decisive as Chris Hughton’s side were unable to pull themselves back level but the Forest boss may have taken positives from the way his team were able to go toe-to-toe with the promotion-chasing Hornets.

He may have been frustrated by the Reds’ lack of incision in the final third, having managed no shots on target, but his captain will likely have impressed him.

Worrall has been a mainstay in the side since returning to the starting XI in December and his commanding presence in the back four was important against a Watford side with a lot of attacking weapons.

The 24-year-old won three defensive duels, made two tackles, one clearance, and one interception (Sofascore) but as much of anything it was his attitude and determination, as well as the way he provided cover for his teammates, that stood out in the lunchtime kick-off.
