Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to draw against Rotherham
By Harvey Byrne
Nottingham Forest supporters took to Twitter to criticise their team’s defence after squandering a 2-1 lead against Rotherham on Wednesday.
The Yorkshire side took the lead after winger Jon Taylor scored with 30 minutes on the clock before goals from Matthew Mills and Apostolos Vellios put Forest in front.
However, a late 87th minute goal from Taylor ensured a share of the spoils at the New York Stadium.
This is the second consecutive match Forest have drew 2-2 and fans took to Twitter to point the blame at their defence.

Philippe Montanier’s side have conceded 15 games in their opening seven matches of the new campaign.
However, they have also scored 15 goals in an exciting start under the French boss.
They have won three matches, drawn two and lost two, leaving them in 10 place in the Championship table.
Forest face recently relegated Norwich next on Saturday, who are positioned in 4th place and looking to return to England’s top flight at the first time of asking.
The Canaries also have a proficient attack with Cameron Jerome leading the line.
