Nottingham Forest have certainly justified their promotion credentials this season and they are well in the hunt for a play-off place heading into the potentially season defining festive period.
Aitor Karanka’s side are currently sat 7th in the Championship and are just a point behind local rivals Derby County as we approach the international break.
Forest midfielder Joe Lolley has been at the centre of their good form this season and with five goals and two assists already this season, many fans would have expected the midfielder to deliver for the Reds against Stoke at the weekend.
But the winger couldn’t make as much of an impact that Forest fans have expected of him this season, as Forest drew 0-0 with the former Premier League side.
With Lolley struggling to make an impact on the game in the early stages, how did some fans react to his performance?
See the best of the reaction from social media below….
Well done Joe.
Certainly wasn't for the want of trying, you played really well second half

Worked your way into the game Joe and you would have scored against any other keeper in our division. Keep it going mate!
