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.
Lansbury tackle was digusting!!! 1-0 up and 2 mins later... he better book his ideas up... not good enough as the Captain #nffc— Kingy (@davekk1984) October 21, 2015
Lansbury has no interest playing for Forest maybe sell him in January #nffc— Paul (@paul58forest) October 20, 2015
Henri Lansbury must either a) not care or b) be just plain stupid. I'm saying latter. Trotting out 'playing on the edge' doesn't help. #NFFC— Jack Grummitt (@Jack_Grummitt) October 20, 2015
Anyone thought lansbury got sent off to help his future employers!! #nffc— Nick Gaubert (@NickGaubert) October 20, 2015
Lansbury has let us down again all players knew it was a red card #nffc— Perry Palmer (@PEZZUR) October 20, 2015
Great goal by Lichaj. See what it means to him. Lansbury let the lads down. Time to give Williams a run. #nffc— PJ Sweeney (@pjsweeney3) October 20, 2015
Lansbury like everyone has had a bang average season, be nice to see someone new step up and maybe actually add something to the team #nffc— Niall Savage (@NiallSav98) October 20, 2015
Why didn't we cash in on Lansbury. Can't wait til he's 28/29 and sell him for 750k #nffc— Reece Barrington (@ReeceyB999) October 20, 2015
Glad Lansbury is suspended, never a captain, ridiculously overrated, what has Williams got to do to get a game..?..#nffc— StephenRowbotham (@alex157red) October 20, 2015
