A misplaced word can often cause a backlash, especially in football when tensions and disappointments are high and given the performance by Nottingham Forest in last night’s embarrassing defeat to Burton Albion that was certainly the case.

Losing 3-2 at the Pirelli Stadium to our League One opponents in the fourth round of the competition yesterday evening, the prize on offer was a quarter-final berth for the first time in a quarter of a century for the club – and we blew it in some fashion.

Most fans accept the final scoreline could’ve been worse as well given our overall showing on the night.

The clubs’ social media team sent out the following Tweet following the fulltime whistle and plenty felt there could’ve been a touch more honesty to the description of the game.

There’s obviously a lot of love amongst fans for Nigel Clough and that obviously features in how some have taken the defeat, but it’s still good to see the acknowledgement given to Burton as it’s a small piece of history for them.

Fair play Cloughie but time for Forest to buck up.

  • Burton wanted it more than Forest
    The Burton players ran and worked for each other all night
    On the other hand not one of the Forest players looked like they had the heart for the fight
    Shocking performance and a thoroughly well deserved victory for Nigel’s team
