Paterson, Mancienne & Assombalonga react on Twitter as Forest finally win

The Nottingham Forest trio took to social media after their 2-1 win over Norwich City.

It's been a long time coming - but Nottingham Forest are finally back to winning ways.

And Stuart Pearce's side left it late even against Norwich. The Canaries led throughout at the City Ground, Jonny Howson having given the visitors a first-half lead.

But Britt Assombalonga equalised, before Michail Antonio netted a 90th-minute winner to break Norwich hearts.

“I must take my hat off to the fans, they’ve been absolutely sensational, not just to me but I think they drove the team on to victory today," Pearce told Nottingham Forest's official website after the win.

“I’m pleased to have won the game but I’m more pleased for the players and fans. They deserve to go home tonight with a smile on their face.

“I don’t think there’s been a game this year when our opponents have finished stronger than us and credit to the players for that."

And, while Norwich's stars must have been wondering what hit them, Forest's were expressing their joy on Twitter.

Goalscorer Assombalonga did so, while Jamie Paterson and Michael Mancienne also took to social media to celebrate.
