Nottingham Forest fans slam performance of Ryan Mendes v Derby County on Twitter

The Cape Verde winger had a poor game against their East Midlands rivals.

Nottingham Forest suffered defeat in the East Midlands derby yesterday. In the end it was a goal from Derby County left-back Marcus Olsson that cost Forest in what was a largely even fixture.

But again Forest lacked a cutting edge in the final third and one man who found himself heavily criticised by the Forest faithful after the game was Ryan Mendes.

The on-loan Lille man's final product was once again non-existent in this game.

He undoubtedly has talent, and has impressed in spurts for Forest this season, but overall he has been a frustrating and uninspiring player - especially since the turn of the year.

Not only is he failing to deliver going forward, but his neglect toward his defensive duties was perhaps more frustrating.

He left Eric Lichaj at right-back exposed throughout the game and it was no surprise when Derby County scored down his side.

His performance and recent form has not impressed the Forest faithful who are clearly doubting any potential permanent deal for the Cape Verde star.

Here is some of the best reaction on Twitter to Mendes' performance...
