Nottingham Forest fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of West Ham United-owned defender Sam Byram against Blackburn Rovers.

Byram, signed on a season-long loan deal from Premier League club West Ham in the summer of 2018, was in action for Forest in their Championship game against Blackburn at the City Ground on Saturday afternoon.

The former Leeds United right-back started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as the Reds lost 2-1.

 

The 25-year-old played well for Forest and slotted in well at the back, and the West Ham-owned defender’s performance was very encouraging.

According to WhoScored, against Blackburn on Saturday afternoon, Byram had a pass accuracy of 81.6%, made four tackles, four interceptions and four clearances, and played two key passes.

It was the former Leeds star’s only third appearance of the season in the Championship, as he has been suffering with a knee injury.

Forest players were impressed with the performance of Byram and have praised him on Twitter.
