Nottingham Forest have begun life without Aitor Karanka at the helm in the worst possible way as they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat away at Reading and finished the Championship game with nine men.

The Reds were a goal down by the midway point of the first half as John Swift combined with Modou Barrow to rifle home from close range, a scoreline that remained as such come the half-time whistle.

However, the first of Forest's red cards came on 62 minutes and left Simon Ireland's trailing side with a mountain to climb after Danny Fox was shown a second yellow for his part in a scuffle.


Seven minutes from time, Tendayi Darikwa also saw red, this time for a late lunge on home substitute Danny Loader, and to add insult to injury, Jack Robinson scored an own goal four minutes later to make it a truly miserable afternoon for the away contingent.

Although Forest remain four points behind the playoffs, the departure of a popular manager combined with a poor run of form has very much soured the mood at the City Ground.

Here is how some Reds faithful reacted on Twitter to the defeat at the Madejski Stadium:
