Nottingham Forest mascot flies the flag before the Sky Bet Championship match between Nottingham Forest and Leeds United
Leeds United's fine start to the season under Thomas Christiansen continued on Saturday evening with a 2-0 away win over Nottingham Forest.
The Whites beat Sunderland 2-0 last weekend and replicated that result with a fine performance at the City Ground, with the result taking Leeds up to third in the Championship table.
Kemar Roofe opened the scoring as he turned home Liam Cooper's header across goal, before Ezgjan Alioski sealed the win in the second half with a powerful strike from long range.
Mark Warburton manager of Nottingham Forest looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Nottingham Forest and Leeds United
Whilst Leeds were elated with their win, Forest will have been disappointed to have lost having failed to build on their midweek Carabao Cup win over Premier League side Newcastle United.
Manager Mark Warburton decided to hand a first start to new signing and ex-Leeds midfielder Liam Bridcutt, meaning his debut came against the club he left earlier this month.
The 28-year-old will have wanted to show Leeds what they're missing, but he struggled to stamp his authority on the game, much to the delight of Leeds fans.
However, Forest fans were not impressed, with many taking to Twitter to criticise his performance as one of the worst debuts in recent memory for Forest, as others suggested it's no wonder why Leeds let him go.
Others are naturally prepared to give Bridcutt more time to shine as it was only his first game for the club, but many were left underwhelmed by his debut performance.
Think that was one of the worst debuts in living memory from Bridcutt yesterday #nffc— Wesley Hickinbotham (@wesleyilson) August 27, 2017
Anybody else think that Bridcutt rarely made himself available today? Hardly dropped back for the defenders and hid at throw ins. #nffc— NFFC (@NottinghamRed99) August 26, 2017
Bridcutt quite poor... but so was Britt last week. I'm sure he'll come good #nffc— Peter Moyes (@Moyesie_p) August 26, 2017
I'll judge Liam Bridcutt over his 5 years of solid midfield display rather than his first league 90 of the season#NFFC— No.22 (@Forest_No_22) August 26, 2017
Worst player on that pitch was Bridcutt for me nffc— Joe Pallett-Newton (@JoePNFFC) August 26, 2017
What do we think of Bridcutt so far? For me, he hasn't made a great start, but obviously it's just his first game. #nffc— Hannah Forest (@hannahforest) August 26, 2017
Can't Bridcutt pass a ball forward?? All his passes have gone sideways or backwards!!— Mickey (@mickey_day) August 26, 2017
Bringing Bridcutt straight into the side has stopped our momemtum today— Gav (@GavinGavjon) August 26, 2017
No wonder they sold Bridcutt— Peter Moyes (@Moyesie_p) August 26, 2017
