Forest fans react on Twitter to Gardner and Macheda displays against Brentford

Gary Gardner

Nottingham Forest lost 3-0 to Brentford in the Championship on Saturday.

Nottingham Forest fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the performances of Gary Gardner and Federico Macheda against Brentford on Saturday afternoon.

Midfielder Gardner, who joined Forest on loan from Premier League side Aston Villa in the January transfer window, started the Championship game at the City Ground and played for the entire 90 minutes.

Former Manchester United striker Macheda, who switched to the Reds on loan from Championship rivals Cardiff City last month, also started the match, and he played for 64 minutes.

Neither Gardner nor the former Italy Under-21 international striker had a great game, as Forest suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Brentford.

After a goalless first half at the City Ground, Lasse Vibe put the Bees in the lead on 49 minutes when he pounced on a mix-up between Kelvin Wilson and keeper Dorus De Vries.

Nico Yennaris smashed home from Jake Bidwell's corner on 65 minutes before Sergi Canos swept in a fine first-time shot late on.

Forest ended the game with 10 men due to the dismissal of Eric Lichaj for two bookable offences.
