Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to Jamaal Lascelles' performance v Watford

Forest City Ground

The Newcastle United defender made his first Premier League start since leaving Nottingham Forest - and managed to score against the Hornets.

There was disappointment among Newcastle United fans as their side lost 2-1 at Watford on Saturday afternoon.

Steve McClaren's men had already been beaten by the Hornets this Premier League season and caught them at a time when they had lost four on the bounce. Newcastle still couldn't muster anything against them, though, and suffered a blow in their battle against relegation.

However, for Nottingham Forest fans, there was shock. Indeed, 22-year-old Jamaal Lascelles made his first Premier League start for the Magpies since leaving the City Ground - and managed to score against Watford.

Opinion seemed mixed on his general performance from Newcastle fans but the fact he managed to score was certainly something.

Nottingham Forest supporters were surprised he even played, let alone netted, and some of them took to Twitter to express their shock.

Here's how Nottingham Forest fans reacted on social media to Lascelles' goalscoring display for Newcastle against Watford...
