Nottingham Forest fans react to Oliver Burke cameo v Leeds on Twitter

Forest City Ground

The Scottish youngster put in an impressive performance from the bench.

Nottingham Forest played out a 1-1 draw with Leeds United yesterday at the City Ground in a tie that could have edged either way.

Forest played on the back foot against a Leeds side who dominated the ball and it almost paid off with the three points easily almost staying at the City Ground.

In the end, they counted themselves unlucky for a late strike that hammered the post of Marco Silvestri;s goal.

The player who hit the strike, was Oliver Burke.

He was thrown on late on to try and win the game for Forest, in place of the more controlling influence of David Vaughan.

It was a gamble that nearly paid off when his half volley took a wicked bounce and slammed the upright.

The 18-year-old Scotland Under-19 international is a player that Forest have high hopes for and this little cameo was yet another sign of his potential.

As well as quick and direct he is physically imposing beyond his tender years and the teenager looks like a bright prospect for the future.

Here is how the Forest fans reacted to his performance on Twitter...
