Nottingham Forest made it three games unbeaten in the Championship on Boxing Day, drawing 0-0 at home to Birmingham City.
The Reds came into this one on the back of a couple of positive results, defeating Sheffield Wednesday by two goals to nil and drawing with Millwall.
There was very little attacking quality on show from both sides at the weekend, though, as they played out a Boxing Day stalemate.
It was Ryan Yates who had the best chance over the course of the 90 minutes, with the midfielder having an acrobatic volley denied by Neil Etheridge from close-range.
Yates, who started yet another game under Chris Hughton, produced an impressive display, particularly in the first-half.
The midfielder picked out some smart passes and recycled play well, and he found himself in some dangerous attacking positions throughout.
Here, we take a look at Forest fans’ reactions to Yates’ performance at the weekend, as Forest picked up another point…
If Yates could finish he would be some player, finds himself in some great positions on the pitch and has plenty of chances to score. #NFFC
I know alot of fans dont rate him which is fine, but hes been playing alot of games for us last couple of seasons.

Something he needs to work on… But he is getting into the box and getting the chances, it will come

And Yates appears to be the only player capable of getting into scoring positions #nffc we had 7 forward players on the pitch today (inc subs) but not one of them looked like doing anything.

Yates was the best player on the field today. That’s how good a game it was #nffc

Yates should be captain for simply just caring. It would send out the right message. #nffc

How can people justify Yates playing? He offers nothing. At one point instead of being in the middle of the park he was at right back! And don’t give me that shit of he had a good game. #nffc
