Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to Jorge Grant's display v Rotherham
By Harvey Byrne
Nottingham Forest midfielder Jorge Grant delivered a poor display against Rotherham in Forest’s 2-2 draw on Wednesday – and supporters took to Twitter to heckle the youngster.
The 21-year-old started the match in his side’s midfield with midfielder’s Matthew Cash and Thomas Lam suffering injuries on Sunday against Aston Villa, while fellow midfielder Hildeberto Pereira received a red card for over celebrating.
Philippe Montanier’s side drew with goals from Matthew Mills and Apostolos Vellios being cancelled out by a Jon Taylor double.
Grant played 84 minutes of the draw, but many fans spent large parts of the match wishing he wasn’t on the field.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Cash miles ahead of Grant already and 3 years younger. Says it all. Back 4 needs to be (when fit) Pinillos, Perquis, Mancienne, Lichaj #nffc

Grant has not featured in the Forest side in the new campaign following his start in the 4-3 season opening victory over Burton.
He has previously played in 14 fixtures after making his debut in August 2014 scoring one goal for his side.
Previously of the Nike Academy, Grant has entered the final year of his contract.
Forest fans will be keen for their midfield trio to return with Chris Cohen, Ben Osborn, Henri Lansbury, Pajtim Kasami and David Vaughan also in the side.
In other Nottingham Forest team news, Matthew Cash delivered a message on Twitter expressing his disappointment after it was confirmed that he had fractured a bone in his knee.
