Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to Michail Antonio performance against Walsall

Nottingham Forest fell to a 4-3 defeat at the hands of Walsall last night.

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman won’t be happy with the way his side have started the season following two defeats in two games.

Forest weren’t able to see off Walsall in the League Cup last night, as the defence struggled to deal with the threats being thrown at them from the League One club, who eventually ran out to be 4-3 winners.

Forest have a lot of work to do out on the pitch and also behind the scenes in the transfer market, as the boss looks to improve the squad options he has to make his defence a little more difficult to break through.

One player who did impress last night was winger Michail Antonio, who showed every bit of his talent to grab a brace, as Walsall struggled to cope with his pace and his power throughout the game in wide areas.

Antonio is arguably the biggest attacking weapon that Forest have at the moment and someone who is vital to the way the team players in terms of their attacking potency and drive when they’re on the front foot and moving forward.

The saving grace for Forest is that they aren’t under any real pressure to sell, should an interested party come into the equation looking to snap him up before the end of the summer transfer window.

It doesn’t make a great deal of sense because Forest can’t freely reinvest any large fee they could demand for him.

There’s no doubt that there are one or two areas where Freedman needs to improve his options. However, he can’t rely on new signings to come in and solve problems and needs to find ways of getting the side motivated and up for improving in their next match.

Here’s what Forest fans made of his performance on Twitter.
