Nottingham Forest were left frustrated in the early kick-off on Saturday, as they were beaten 1-0 by promotion-chasing Watford at Vicarage Road.
Adam Masina scored the opener for Xisco Munoz’s side, after Ismaila Sarr beat Gatan Bong in the channel, before his cross was cut diverted back into the path of Masina, who drilled the ball home past Brice Samba in the Nottingham Forest goal.
Sarr continued to be a constant threat to the Nottingham Forest defence throughout the match, with Bong struggling to contain the tricky Hornets winger.
The left-back was making his tenth appearance of the season for Chris Hughton’s side, who will be looking to get back to winning ways at the earliest of opportunities, starting with their next match against Reading at the City Ground in a week’s time.
Was it Lewis Grabban or Lyle Taylor that did these things?
It was an improved and spirited display from Chris Hughton’s side in the second-half, and they can take some positives from the final 45 minutes in the game moving forward.
Plenty of Nottingham Forest supporters took to social media to issue their verdict on Bong’s display in the defeat to Watford.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below…
The gulf in capability between Worrall and Bong is vast! If Yuri was fit Bong wouldn’t get anywhere near that position but what does Blackett have to do to get a game? #nffc

Really need sort sort our left hand side out. Freeman needs to get back to support Bong or we need a change down that side.

Bong, Yates and Knockaert are passengers in this game. Worrall, Garner and Freeman dare I say it look the best 3 Forest players on pitch at min.

Joe Worrall constantly having to cover for Bong. Bong not good enough and looking at Worralls face I think he thinks the same #nffc
— Paul Lane (@cdred3) March 6, 2021
Seriously, please take Bong off #nffc

It’s almost like putting Bong up against Sarr was a terrible idea… #nffc

That's why bong gets slated, and Yates and figs, too many mistakes from these in games. #nffc
