Nottingham Forest's Oliver Burke and Henri Lansbury react on Twitter to Charlton draw

Forest City Ground

Nottingham Forest duo offer reason for enthusiasm despite draw, and off field events.

There is some positivity at Nottingham Forest after all.

Young talent Oliver Burke was handed his debut for the club last night, and did not look out of place in the 0-0 draw with Charlton Athletic at the City Ground.

The 18-year-old played all 90 minutes, making 62 touches, completing 75 per cent of his passes, and creating two goalscoring opportunities.

He took to Twitter after the game to express his wonderment at making his first team bow...

Amid all the uncertainty surrounding the future of star player Michail Antonio, it is refreshing to see a youngster so joyous to be simply - playing football.

Antonio was left out of the side last night after manager Dougie Freedman confirmed he was not in the right frame of mind to play, telling The BBC that Forest had rejected a transfer bid for his services.

Another player linked away recently has been Henri Lansbury, but he remains focused and part of the side, and took to social media himself to praise the young side, which also included Tyler Walker and Jorge Grant, who came off the bench early in the second half.
