Nottingham Forest’s on-loan midfielder Gary Gardner believes nothing went The Reds’ way as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Sheffield Wednesday yesterday.The 22-year-old completed his move on the morning of the match and came on at half-time as Stuart Pearce looked for a way to get his side back into the game.
But Gardner was unable to affect the outcome of the match on a disappointing day at The City Ground.
Speaking after the game, Gardner said: “When it’s not going your way everything goes against you, all the little decisions, and you need those to win a game. Unfortunately today we had nothing going for us.
“I thought the lads did well. It’s a scruffy goal they scored in the first half but we gave it a go.”
Despite defeat on his debut, Gardner is optimistic about what he can achieve with The Reds and is delighted with the chance to work with his former England Under 21s boss again.
He said: “I’m ready to give 110% and that’s what I’ll do for the club, the fans and the staff here.
“I know the gaffer is hard as nails, I know he’ll get through this.
“I was buzzing that the fans were supporting him. He’s a great character and he wants the players to get stuck in. Unfortunately it didn’t go our way today but we’ll keep going.”
