A crowd of 18,510 were inside The City Ground to see tonight’s 4-2 win over Watford and there were many more tuning in through television, radio and social media.Following the game through Twitter was almost as entertaining as it was inside the stadium, so here is a selection of tweets from throughout the match as Forest fans rallied behind The Reds.
As we trailed 1-0 at half-time following a goal from Watford’s Gabriele Angella, @skegnessreferee was on hand to calm down his fellow fans.
“Forest have looked nervous since the goal. Let’s hope Billy gives the players the right words and gets them out fighting in the second half.” - @skegnessreferee
“@Offical_NFFC need to be more clinical! #COYR #nffcfamily” - @benmortlockk
We had gone 2-0 down after Angella doubled The Hornets’ lead but a brace from Simon Cox and goals from Darius Henderson and Jamie Mackie gave Forest a stunning success which left the fans on social media delighted.
