Although a trip to Turf Moor was always likely to be a tough test, the Reds’ failure to threaten in the fixture caused some frustration.
Forest only had one shot on target against the Clarets, and that has rather summed up their struggles going forward this season.
Without Britt Assombalonga, the Reds haven’t found a striker capable of netting on a frequent basis, and supporters of the Midlands club appear to think this is partly down to Freedman’s tactics.
The Scottish boss has made Forest a well organised side, but they have lacked a spark going forward.
Forest have only scored 31 goals in their 32 Championship matches to date, and some fans have been left frustrated with the lack of entertainment on display.
Here is the best reaction from Forest fans on social media site Twitter, after they lost 1-0 to Burnley yesterday evening.
Freedman is boring. His football is boring. Club needs a change in the summer if it wants to move forward #nffc— Paul Cusack (@Caz_NFFC) February 24, 2016
Congratulations to Dougie Freedman's team last night. We managed One Shot on Target ! #nffc— VOTE LEAVE EU ! (@73Antw) February 24, 2016
Freedman has been a great manager under the embargo, whether he is capable of taking us up is a different matter. #nffc— Sam Straw (@SamStraw) February 23, 2016
Freedman moans about strikers every week. Does he not have confidence in Oliveira/Ward? Seems a lack of winning or fighting spirit #NFFC— Kieran Gaughan (@KieranGaughan) February 23, 2016
I will start to really judge Freedman next season when he can spend and chose his team and has more to play with #nffc— Jcov (@Jcov1998) February 23, 2016
People saying "we'd be top 6 if Britt was fit"— ForestRed. (@ForestRed1) February 23, 2016
I guarantee freedman would still play 4-5-1 #nffc
Messi would average 3 goals a season under Dougie Freedman #nffc— Josh Morris (@JoshMorris_91) February 23, 2016
@bashheish yeah I agree. I think freedman is doing a average job. Preston are 6 points above us. Shouldn't happen.— ForestRed. (@ForestRed1) February 24, 2016
Forest are now in 12th place in the Championship table, with their next match coming against Bristol City at the weekend.
