Nottingham ForestMany Nottingham Forest fans responded on Twitter to their 1-0 home defeat to Huddersfield Town last night. The Reds were frustrated after 90 minutes of when they should have gone online in a game where they had high chances. Of course, it didn't take long for Nottingham Forest fans to react to what they saw of their team, and many used social media to share their thoughts on the performance as a whole. Here we take a look at some of the best responses from supporters on Twitter when Forest lost. Absolutely amazed that we didn't score at least 3 goals. If Davis can score from 2 yards in training, I want to see him in the next game, I can't believe what I just saw. We need a striker, Grabban wasn't on the pitch tonight! God help us against the arsenal if we can't score against Huddersfield, feel a bad run, every team thinks we're in ours now, needs to sort out the silver lining quickly is that we really need high quality reinforcement in January. Proven quality necessary, please do not roll the dice Recruitment 🙏🏽 That was excruciating to see! Another night we would have shot 10 🤣 # NFFC Could have played until New Years and couldn't have scored. how many chances were missed ... 🤯 I think we need a couple of goal scorers ... 🤔

Terriers beat Forest for third straight win

Huddersfield's third straight win strengthens its hold on a play-off spot in the championship and doomed Nottingham Forest to consecutive defeats. (Author: Gardener)

thirdHuddersfield took a third straight win to strengthen their hold on a championship play-off spot and doomed Nottingham Forest to a straight defeat for the first time under Steve Cooper. Forest had several chances to equalize quickly, Joe Worrall hit terribly far from 10 meters, Philip Zinckernagel hit the crossbar and Xande Silva's snapshot was well saved by Terriers keeper Lee Nicholls. Brennan Johnson missed a glorious equalizer after the break, volleying a loose ball wide after Nicholls parried from Silva. Huddersfield remains sixth while Forest remains ninth. Huddersfield, borne by their 3-2 wins over Bristol City and Blackpool in their last two games, hit the wood within 17 seconds when Sorba Thomas' 25-yard shot crashed over the crossbar. Forest had only lost twice in 16 games since Cooper took the lead in September. The fact that they couldn't equalize before the break was due to the woodwork, because the loaned Watford winger Zinckernagel hit the bottom of the crossbar from 15 meters of pitch. But they also had to regret a bad finish as Worrall and especially Johnson failed to hit the target with excellent openings in the Huddersfield area on either side of the break. The Terriers had a chance to seal the points in the second half, with Danel Sinani steering Jordan Rhodes' square ball after a worrall slip and Samba knocking over a 20-yard goal from Lewis O'Brien. But they defended strongly to keep Forest at bay in the closing stages, with Nicholls rarely having problems as Huddersfield clinched a fourth win in his last six visits to the City Ground.

Wald "interspersed" with Covid when Cooper thinks about "tough" fortnight

An exhausted Reds side suffered a second straight defeat when they lost 1-0 to Huddersfield Town (Author: Gardener)

The Reds suffered a second straight defeat, losing 1-0 at home to the Terriers and losing to Duane Holmes' goal in the first half. But it was a tired Forest squad that moved to the City Ground pitch when Cooper made three changes to the XI that lost in Middlesbrough on Boxing Day. In addition to an already long list of injuries, the coach's options were also limited by illness, as Ryan Yates and Tobias Figueiredo were not in the squad for the day of the match. “These were really forced changes. Add two and two together and you will likely find the right answer, ”said Cooper. “There are a lot of players who are injured and Covid has been riddled with holes at the club for some time. “We had to change teams yesterday. We had to change that again today. It's the world we live in right now. ”When asked if the game was about to be abandoned, the Welshman said,“ That's not a question I can answer. It's for over me. ”“ It's not my place to answer, ”Cooper said when asked if this game could be in doubt. He added, “You have to stay professional. All you have to do is commit to the way you work. “I always say, even when I'm standing here after we've won games, that we're sticking to the plan. It's the same when we lose games. “We played really well tonight. The fans were excellent, I think they could see a team trying but also dominating the game.

Rangers upset Nottingham Forest fans with claiming a major European club

The Rangers have angered former European Cup winners Nottingham Forest with a claim about an upcoming 150th anniversary friendly. (Author: Gardener)

Nottingham ForestThe Rangers are preparing for a special Weekend of Legend friendly - but the announcement seems to have upset more than a few Nottingham Forest fans. A special Rangers Legends XI is preparing to celebrate in late March as part of the 150th celebrations. But with the unveiling of the friendly - which the club hopes to play in front of a sold-out crowd before a special evening dinner - has a claim the fans of Nottingham Forest frustrated. The Rangers claim they are the first major European club to hit the 150th anniversary milestone, indicating the Gers' sizable international status. Founded in 1865 - seven years before the Rangers - Forest generally prides itself on being one of the UK's oldest and most established football clubs and a representative of the world. Where Nottingham Forest fans took offense at Rangers is the claim that the Gers were the first major European club to hit the 150 mark. While the Ibrox squad doesn't say so explicitly, Nottingham Forest and their fans have obviously taken offense by claiming that they are not a major European club. Forest is two-time European Cup winners under legendary Brian Clough and there is no doubt that their golden era deserves great recognition for these accomplishments. The legendary team won the European Cup in 1979 and 1980, with the Supercup in between. But in modern times - and even in the run-up to Forest's double European Cup triumphs - the hint that Forest was or are a European powerhouse doesn't exactly carry weight. They have won seven major national trophies in their entire history. That shouldn't pollute the forest; They are clearly an iconic club with a rich history and proud identity. But the question is whether the legendary double European Cup triumph will make the club a major European club? Nottingham Forest fans seem to think so; Apparently not Ranger.

Duane Holmes winner sinks lavish reds

Report and highlights from the Sky Bet Championship clash between Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield at the City Ground when Duane Holmes scored the only goal of the game to seal the Terriers victory over Steve Cooper's men (Author: Gardener)

Duane HolmesHuddersfield held out under a notable pressure storm to claim a 1-0 win at City Ground that left Nottingham Forest frustrated. Steve Cooper's side played one chance after the other when Duane Holmes scored for the guests in the 30th minute. But goalkeeper Lee Nicholls parried a number of saves and Forest missed a number of opportunities when somehow they managed to come out empty-handed from a game they could easily have won by a comfortable margin. Sorba Thomas hit the crossbar with a brutal, spectacular shot within the first 20 seconds for Huddersfield after finding space to fly from 22 yards on the right. Forest responded with a Brennan Johnson cross for Lewis Grabban, but although the striker's first touch was good, he was unable to make room for a shot. Xande Silva almost scored his first start for Forest when he saw two desperate shots. Philip Zinckernagel forced a clumsy save from Nicholls with a shot that ricocheted off just in front of the keeper. James Garner tried to catch Nicholls with a clever free kick, but the Huddersfield man matched it. Johnson threw a header into the distance. Forest responded when both Garner and Joe Worrall fired shots inches off the wrong side of the post. Nicholls had to make an outstanding save before the break, this time to fend off an instinctive shot from Silva. Zinckernagel failed again at the start of the second half to Nicholls, but Forest also suffered a major loss when Danel Sinani shot over him when a mistake by Worrall gave him a clear view of the goal. Johnson missed a good chance for Forest while Samba had to make a sharp save to keep Lewis O'Brien out in an electric encounter. Nicholls held off Silva with a small shot and Johnson should have hit the loose ball - but shot into the side netting. Forest continued to pressure and created numerous chances without making the breakthrough. Spence had a shot down, Sub Cafu shot a header wide. Johnson drove far from the edge of the box.

Terriers ride their luck to get three wins at a trot

Everything was different for Huddersfield Town yesterday. (Author: Gardener)

threeThe Terriers changed the formation to a 4-4-2 and even a chief executive with Dean Hoyle, who presided over perhaps the best days of the club since Herbert Chapman and took over as an interim after Mark Devlin's departure. Pipa played first-team soccer for the first time this season, coming on as a substitute in the second half, but the most confusing change of all was that they won. They have never before won away games in a row under Carlos Corberan and it is hard to say they were the better side in the 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest City Ground. Because all of their play-off rivals threw the kitchen sink at them - with 23 shots but only six on goal, not to mention all the moves that failed for lack of a decent final pass - despite what the Terriers did for the entire second They tried half-desperately to turn the clock down, but they actually missed a few good opportunities themselves. It was an odd game on a strange day, but an enjoyable one for the 1,193 away fans. “You won't win these games if you don't have a personality. It was a challenge to our personality because we had to keep trying to attack. We couldn't have won the three points if we had defended for 45 minutes (in the second half). Even above the noise of 27,159 spectators, the ball boomed around, crashed into meaty challenges, smashed on goal or hissed around in passes. Sometimes it felt like 22 men were taking out a huge amount of frustration on a poor leather ball - or if not on the ball, on each other. It looked like Sorba Thomas was enjoying the freedom to play in right midfield when he hit the crossbar within the first minute, although honestly he peaked there with a quarter of the game coming on and the need for another pair of fresh legs. At that point, Jordan Rhodes had been substituted on, who came on in the 15th minute for Danny Ward, who came with breathing problems. The striker, who scored a hat trick on his previous City Ground start in Sheffield Wednesday, was greeted into the game by Joe Worrall near the centerline, right through the back of him. Needless to say, the shot hit him like a bullet after Zinckernagel was given way too much space to load on the right. "Sometimes it's better to keep growing with the three points than without," said Corberan. “I'm not entirely satisfied, but I know how difficult it is to win games in a row, especially if there aren't many days in between.

Cooper is "disappointed" with Forest's defeat on two fronts

The Reds lost 1-0 at home to Huddersfield Town in the final game of 2021 despite having performed well (Author: Gardener)

CooperThe Reds lost 1-0 at home to Huddersfield Town in their last game of 2021 despite showing a good performance Harry Toffolo of Huddersfield Town holds Brennan Johnson of Nottingham Forest in your inbox, an error occurred. Please try again later. Thank you for subscribing. But boss Steve Cooper was particularly frustrated with the goal they conceded at the other end of the pitch. It came from a move Forest had been working on ahead of the game when Duane Holmes teamed up with Harry Toffolo before defeating Brice Samba at his nearby post. "We didn't win because we conceded a goal that we didn't want to concede that way," said the Welshman. “We have done a lot of work in the last few days with Toffolo and flat flanks in the area they were shooting from. It's a real feature of Huddersfield's threat of attack - they scored a lot of goals that way. “I am disappointed that after careful scrutiny we gave in this way. “But I won't lose sight of the fact that we were by far the better team. We were the dominant team and played better football. We just didn't manage to stay clean and score. ”The result came on the back of the 2-0 deficit on Boxing Day in Middlesbrough. But in contrast to this clash, Forest was the better team on the banks of the Trient - just in front of the goal.

Huddersfield Town far from winning perfectly at Forest, but all that counts is the points

Carlos Corberan's side have now taken three wins in a row and have been unbeaten in five games, although their performance at the City Ground leaves much to be desired (Author: Gardener)

Huddersfield TownHuddersfield Town at Nottingham Forest nowhere near perfect but points count everything Carlos Corberan's side have now taken three straight wins and have been unbeaten in five games, although their performance at the City Ground leaves much to be desired in getting the latest Huddersfield Town messages are delivered straight to your inbox every day - sign up for free email updates. Something went wrong, please try again later. On another day, Nottingham Forest would have won that game 3-1. Scientific leaders, if asked to study this game carefully in an attempt to explain how Huddersfield Town won the game, would say nothing. They won and in the end, that's all that counts. It's true in games like this, in the midst of the hectic game in late December, away against a side that has been in the best shape in the league since Town last met in September. “Another day” is irrelevant if there actually won't be another day for that game. Harry Toffolo was once again the creator of that victory, claiming to score an assist for the fourth game in a row when he brought Duane Holmes on the ball to touch the ball forward before hitting it on the near post in the half hour Brice Samba pushed past. If that Sinani miss was a criminal, then Nottingham Forest as a whole was the Corleone family - and mostly Fredos at that. Somehow Lee Nicholls came away with zero despite the opponent's best efforts to stick a horse's head in it. That was largely thanks to the goalkeeper's performance, but also a new back four, mainly used due to injuries to Tom Lees and Naby Sarr, held up well despite the failures of the players in front of them. Levi Colwill in particular was excellent; Matty Pearson, Harry Toffolo and - on the whole, despite some hairy moments - Ollie Turton were also commendable. If this was the start of the season, if this game in particular weren't that big of a challenge, or if Town's defense wasn't exhausted by injuries, we could be more attentive to the negative aspects of this performance despite the assured win. But their efforts to reverse their recent bad form have brought them that bit of luck, and there will no doubt be other games - maybe there have been other games - that could switch roles.

Player ratings as Forest in City Ground suffers a frustrating defeat

Steve Cooper's Reds were beaten 1-0 by the Terriers as they regretted a multitude of missed opportunities (Author: Gardener)

City GroundSteve Cooper's Reds were beaten 1-0 by the Terriers as they regretted a host of missed opportunities Philip Zinckernagel of Nottingham Forest reacted after missing a chance during the Sky Bet Championship game between Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield Town. Get the Reds transfer at the latest, team news, game updates and analytics will be delivered straight to your inbox. Something went wrong, please try again later. Thank you for subscribing.It wasn't the way Steve Cooper's side would have wanted to see 2021 after being tumbled 2-0 in Middlesbrough on Boxing Day. But they will bring themselves to their knees for failing to take advantage of a multitude of opportunities that got in their way. Djed Spence returned to the team after being ineligible to play against Middlesbrough. The right-back was one of three changes from the team that started at Riverside Stadium. Xande Silva got his first start in the Garibaldi, while Braian Ojeda was also included. It was the guests who started the race brighter and were just 20 seconds from the lead when Sorba Thomas hit the crossbar with a violent shot. Forest grew into the game, however, and started making a couple of decent openings during the halfway point. Silva saw a couple of attempts from inside the box that were blocked before an oblique shot from Philip Zinckernagel was well saved by Lee Nicholls. James Garner tested the goalkeeper shortly after with a well-executed free kick, then Brennan Johnson headed a cross from Silva just wide. But just as the Reds were starting to find their rhythm, Huddersfield found the breakthrough. Duane Holmes was given too much time and space in the penalty area and shot the ball past Brice Samba past his near post after 30 minutes. Garner shot wide and Joe Worrall spurned a golden opportunity as he passed the ball just wide of the post after a corner. A little more than five minutes before the break, the bar wobbled when zinc stud hit the bottom edge of the wood as it aimed at the top corner. His effort bounced off instead of over the line as Forest players watched in disbelief. Then, just before the break, Silva Nicholls forced an outstanding save from close range. At the beginning of the second half, the city stopper was called again, which thwarted Zinckernagel after a great run by the winger. The chances for Forest continued to grow. Johnson, Silva and Lewis Grabban all tried their luck, but it was a frustrating evening on the banks of the Trent. This is how Reds reporter Sarah Clapson rates the Forest players on the City Ground.

Brice Samba: Will be disappointed to have been hit at his near post - was a sloppy goal. Rating: 6/10 Djed Spence: Raised a cheer when he thwarted himself in the hunt for a seemingly lost cause in the first half to keep the pressure on Huddersfield. Rating: 8/10 Joe Worrall: Two big moments on either side of half could have turned the tide one way or the other. Missed a golden chance to equalize but was lucky enough not to be penalized for a mistake in the second half. Forest didn't look at his best with a four-man defense, but had to be. Rating: 7/10 Jack Colback: Required to fill in the left defender again. Did well enough but Forest could have used him in the middle of the field. Nottingham Forests Jack Colback (left) and Huddersfield Towns Sorba Thomas battle for the ball James Garner: Showed some nice touches and wasn't too far away with a couple of shots on goal. Rating: 7/10 Braian Ojeda: Quite a quiet performance as he tried hard to really get through the game. Neat and tidy on the ball but Forest missed not having a midfielder to interrupt play. Rating: 6/10 Brennan Johnson: Involved in so many positive moments when the Reds pounded their opponents' goal. Just miss the finishing touches when it comes down to being close more than once. Rating: 6/10 Philip Zinckernagel: Crossbar is still trembling from his heavy hit in the first half. Had a couple of chances to get into the top scorer list but couldn't finish quite right - but not for lack of try. Rating: 7/10 Xande Silva: Made his first start in the Garibaldi - and he really took the chance. Came with a goal a couple of times just before his full debut, constantly trying to open the guests. Rating: 8/10 Lewis Grabban: Did a lot of runs, although he wasn't always right on the radar. Despite all the chances that Forest had, few got in the way of the front man. Rating: 6/10 Cafu (for Ojeda, 66min): It worked out well, but this time substitutions didn't have the desired effect. Rating: 6/10 Lyle Taylor (for Silva, 72min): He worked hard in the time he had on the pitch, just not able to create an opportunity. Scoring: 6/10 Joao Carvalho (for Zinckernagel, 80 min.): The Reds tried to force the equalizer. Rating: 6/10 We partnered with LiveScore to invite fans to nominate their favorite results - the games that were much more than just a result.
