Nottingham Forest fans discuss playoff chances on Twitter following defeat to Norwich City

Nottingham Forest suffered a 3-1 defeat to Norwich City away from home in the Championship on Saturday.

Nottingham Forest’s chances of finishing in the top six of the Championship this season suffered a blow on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds endured their heaviest defeat under manager Dougie Freedman, as they went down 3-1 to Norwich City away from home.

Hosts Norwich took the lead at Carrow Road on the stroke of half time when Wes Hoolahan found Jonny Howson, who fired past Karl Darlow.

Cameron Jerome doubled the Canaries’ lead in the 56th minute, and just three minutes later Hoolahan made it 3-0 to the home team from the penalty spot.

Although Chris Burke pulled one back for Forest on 76 minutes, it failed to inspire the Nottingham-based outfit to a comeback.

Forest now find themselves ninth in the Championship table with 57 points from 39 matches, as many as 10 points behind sixth-placed Ipswich Town.

Freedman’s side are mathematically still with a chance of making the playoffs, but they now have a tough task on their fans.

Following the defeat, Forest fans took to social networking site Twitter to discuss the team’s chances of making the top six.
