Gary Gardner reacts on Twitter to Curtis Davies's new contract, defender responds

Hull City KC Stadium

The Hull City centre-back was responding to the Nottingham Forest loanee on social media, with the pair both having played for Aston Villa.

Nottingham Forest midfielder Gary Gardner, on loan from Aston Villa, took to Twitter to congratulate Hull City defender Curtis Davies on Wednesday afternoon.

Hull have just given Davies a new contract and the Forest man congratulated him on social media, having caught up with him on Tuesday night.

The pair, both ex-Aston Villa, exchanged messages and Davies joked that Gardner had 'ruined' his day on Tuesday.

Indeed, Nottingham Forest drew 1-1 with promotion-chasing Hull at the KC Stadium thanks to Gardner's fantastic strike.

Aston Villa fans may have been watching that strike questioning exactly why the club decided to loan the 23-year-old out...

Aston Villa travel to Swansea City on Saturday evening, while Nottingham Forest face a grudge match at Derby County during Saturday's early kick-off in the Championship.

Hull, meanwhile, travel to Middlesbrough on Friday night looking to get their promotion chase back on track.

A win could move Hull back into the automatic promotion places but Boro are a point ahead of Steve Bruce's side after their draw with Forest.
