Gardner spent 65 minutes on the pitch before being brought off for eventual goalscorer Rudy Gestede in a tactical switch.
The midfielder graduated through Villa’s youth academy and has made 23 appearances for the club after making his league debut in 2011 against Chelsea.
Aston Villa have added nine senior players into their side this summer, which includes midfielders Aaron Tshibola and Mile Jedinak, who both didn’t feature against Forest.
In other Aston Villa team news, Villa fans were left wondering on Twitter why Jedinak didn’t come off the bench against Forest.
