the central defender has struggled at the start of this new season.
They missed a penalty late on from Henri Lansbury and had several chances in the second half, but mistakes at the back cost them. Both of Boro’s goals – from David Nugent and Daniel Ayala – were preventable and the Forest defence will not be pleased with their performance.
One man in particular who got the brunt of stick from Forest fans on Twitter was former Celtic defender Kelvin Wilson.
The defender certainly did not have his best game at the back for Forest.
He made an error for one of the goals and was certainly a worrying figure at the back throughout. He has not exactly been a popular figure among Forest fans all season but with Michael Mancienne out of action he started the game and Forest fans were left wishing afterwards that Mancienne was available.
The result means that Forest fall down the table and fans of the club will be hoping for more solid defensive displays going forward.
Poor back pass from Mills, crazy header from Wilson and Lansbury's missed penalty, talk about shooting yourself in the foot #nffc— Alan O'Hara (@Aloha_71) September 19, 2015
Hope Mancienne is back Thursday to play instead of Wilson #nffc— Darren J D (@Dazzler1865) September 19, 2015
#nffc well played when made changes, only disappointment Wilson & don't keep kicking your pens down middle, the defender had told the keeper— steve boorman (@boormansteve) September 19, 2015
Kelvin Wilson's evil twin made an unwelcome return today ... He's often poor at the City Ground— Stu (@stuuuuu_nffc) September 19, 2015
Outside of Wilson, we looked solid. Boro just a better team. De Vries put in work and Lansbury was great (mostly). On to the next one. #nffc— Soul Patrol (@TucsonHooligan) September 19, 2015
Played really well today. Unlucky not to get anything. If Wilson can leave going Yates on Friday might be better defensively. #nffc— Rob Ball (@Bob13a11) September 19, 2015
Just checked the dictionary for the word "clueless" it said see under Calvin Wilson. #nffc— Andy (@NFFCWatson1865) September 19, 2015
#NFFC: Kelvin Wilson isn't looking up to the job AT ALL this season. Off the pace, bad decision-making & terrible marking today :(— Jon Jackson (@jonners) September 19, 2015
