Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to Harding's departure to Millwall

Nottingham Forest defender Dan Harding joined Millwall earlier today.

Nottingham Forest supporters have been left largely disappointed by the club's decision to allow Dan Harding to join Milwall on loan.

The experienced left-back may not have played very often for the Reds this campaign, but their fans have still been impressed with his displays when he has been on the pitch, and his exit has been greeted with widespread dissatisfaction. 

Although Harding is not a stand-out Championship left-back, he is a steady performer and Forest fans have been left baffled by Stuart Pearce's apparent willingness to allow him to leave. 

The 31-year-old has played 10 times for Forest this season and his reliability is something that the club's supporters feel is lacking from their current starting line-up.

At the moment, Danny Fox is the Reds' preferred choice for the left-back berth but he has failed to impress and many felt that Harding should have been given more opportunities. 

His departure today has only added to the feeling of discontent around the City Ground, with Pearce's side having won just two of their last 19 matches. 

Harding is expected to go straight into the Millwall first team to cover for the loss of Scott Malone, who left to join Cardiff City.

Here is the best reaction from Forest fans on Twitter to Harding's departure.
