Nottingham Forest fans deliver verdict on Mark Warburton after draw against Derby

By Amir Mir

Nottingham Forest rescued a late draw against rivals Derby County on Saturday afternoon – and fans on Twitter have provided mixed views on Mark Warburton.

Both teams had appointed new managers earlier on in the week, with former Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett replacing the sacked Steve McClaren.

By contrast, Warburton, who was manager of Rangers at the start of the year, left his post at Ibrox in early February.

His team got off to the best of starts when Zac Clough opened the scoring for the home team after five minutes.

After the break, Matej Vydra leveled the scores before David Nugent put the Rams into the lead to the delight of the away fans.

However, deep into stoppage time, Forest equalised through Daniel Pinillos as Warburton and Rowett shared the points in their opening games.

One fan stated that Warburton is a very good manager and proven in the Championship but he has not stability to back him up in the boardroom.

Another supporter praised the former Brentford boss for not being afraid to play three players up top as he urged Forest to buckle up.

Others were looking at the bigger picture as they believe he has a big rebuilding job on his hands with Forest currently one place and one point above the relegation zone.

Overall, fans were behind Warburton as they understood that with the backing he can turn the club around.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
