Forest supporters react on Twitter to Reid's injury setback

Forest City Ground

Nottingham Forest's Andy Reid was ruled out for a further six weeks with a groin injury earlier today.

Nottingham Forest fans have been left hugely disappointed by the news that Andy Reid has suffered a setback in his comeback from injury. 

Reid has been out since September with a persistent groin injury and he was expected to be back in the team in the near future.

However, news today has emerged via Nottingham Forest's official website that Reid's absence is going to be a lengthier one than first feared and he will have to undergo further surgery to rectify the problem. 

The midfielder is now expected to miss at least another six weeks and it is huge blow to a Reds side who have missed him desperately. 

Reid is the creative fulcrum of Stuart Pearce's team and they have struggled to find a replacement during his time on the sidelines. 

His absence has coincided with Forest going on a terrible run of form, which has seen them pick up just three wins in 21 matches, and there are concerns that this run will continue with Reid out. 

There are also worries that this could be the end for the 32-year-old, who has suffered with persistent injury problems throughout his time at the City Ground.

Here is the best reaction from Forest fans on social media site Twitter.
