Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to Henri Lansbury’s red card v Burnley

Nottingham Forest 2

Nottingham Forest managed a 1-1 draw with Burnley on Tuesday evening.

Forest were leading the game against Championship rivals Burnley heading into the final minutes of the tie, but a Matty Taylor strike equalised the game and shared the spoils between the two teams.

There was a good chance Forest could have won the game after leading, were it not for the performance of Henri Lansbury.

The midfielder, who was captaining the side, did little to help his teammates with a horrible tackle in the second half. Just moments after Eric Lichaj had handed Forest the lead, the 25-year-old collided with Ben Mee in midfielder, appearing to stamp on the Burnley man as he went to ground.

He was given a straight red card, and Forest could not hold onto their lead with just 10 men on the field of play.

It was hardly the kind of performance one wants to see from any of their players, let along the man skippering the side, and Lansbury’s performance and tackle brought a lot of criticism following the end of the game.

Forest fans took to Twitter to discuss the midfielder, with some claiming that he does not look like he wants to be playing at the City Ground, and others criticising him for letting his teammates down in what could have been a rare win for Dougie Freedman’s men.
