Nottingham Forest players, including Gary Gardner and Chris Burke, react to 3-0 win on Twitter

Nottingham Forest beat Reading 3-0 away from home yesterday.

Nottingham Forest raised some eyebrows when they relieved Stuart Pearce of coaching duties and replaced him with Dougie Freedman almost instantaneously.

But the bold move has certainly seemed to pay dividends.

They have won five and drew one of the six games since Freedman took over, scoring 19 goals in the process. Yesterday it was Reading's turn to be put to the sword.

Forest won 3-0 at the Madejski Stadium, scoring three cracking goals.

Ben Osborn scored the opener, Matty Fryatt increased the lead for Forest before Gary Gardner put the icing on the cake with a fantastic strike as the Berkshire side struggled to get any foothold on what was a scrappy affair.

Obviously, after such a win, the Forest players were in good voice on Twitter after the match. The main buzz however was that goal from Gardner.

The goal went on to be voted the Sky Sports News HQ goal of the day for The Championship, something he ws proud of and the likes of Dexter Blackstock had predicted.

Henri Lansbury in the meanwhile thanked the team effort behind the win.

But no doubt what the best Tweet from a Forest player was. That award goes to Chris Burke. The Scottish winger was more concerned with the quality of film he had just watched, rather than the result.
